Amy Childs Meets Prince Harry

Former TOWIE star Amy Childs has spoken of how she was left in a fluster after bumping into royal red-head Prince Harry at a showbiz bash last year.

In her New! magazine column this week, the reality TV princess reveals a royal crush on Harry and explains how she greeted her Prince Charming in typical Essex style.

The 21-year-old wrote: "OMG, he is so fit and I've now decided he is much better looking than Prince William!

"I went up to him and said 'Alright 'arry'. He was really nice."

If Harry is looking to marry into Essex royalty, he may be disappointed as Amy recently revealed she is back with 24-year-old former flame Joe Hurlock.

Amy said: "We're taking things slowly. We're still really close - just texting, talking, and he comes over every now and then."

Despite making no effort to take her regal crush any further, the All About Amy star is enjoying her glamorous celebrity lifestyle.

On meeting Kate Middleton at the The Sun Military Awards last month, Amy said: "I also saw Kate Middleton there, who looked tiny. But she is even prettier in real life, a real princess.

"I wanted to go and talk Zara dresses with her, but she was a few tables away from me."

Never mind Zara dresses, Amy, Kate probably wanted know where she could get a vajazzle!
