The 25-year-old prince has now reunited with his on/off girlfriend Chelsy Davey as the pair were seen in The X Factor studio during Robbie Williams performance on the final last weekend. But when Prince Harry met Joe McElderry at a charity award ceremony on Monday evening, he admitted his crush on the Girls Aloud star.
He told Joe: “I’m jealous that you got to spend weeks with Cheryl,” before admitted he tried to gain backstage access to meet Cheryl after the show: “I was trying to hide behind Simon Cowell and sneak in – but I couldn’t get past security!“
I’m sure Simon would have given you a backstage pass if you had asked Harry, afterall, your a Royal!! Meanwhile older brother Prince William told Joe: “You did really well and you had the whole of the North-East backing you. I hope your single sells well.“
Joe McElderry admits he was bowled over after meeting the royals: “I was totally starstruck. I was very honoured to meet the princes. They were really nice.“
