Prince Harry spends night out with blonde pal of Kate Middleton
9 MARCH 2009
Prince Harry has been spotted enjoying a night out with a close friend of Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton.
On Friday the 24-year-old royal was partying with 27-year-old Astrid Harbord at a nightclub in Chelsea before the pair headed back to the prince's flat in Clarence House, reports the News Of The World .
Bristol University graduate Astrid, who was pictured alongside Kate at a charity boxing event last year, is a well-known face among the princes' social circle, sharing mutual friends including Lord Freddie Windsor and Guy Pelly.
The news comes days after trainee helicopter pilot Harry spent the evening with ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy, sparking speculation they could rekindle their romance.
Despite ending their relationship in January, the pair are in regular contact and are believed to have met at the London flat of pal Olivia Perry who is acting as mediator between the two.
