Prince Andrew's model friend's royal career boost

Monday August 16, 2010

New friend of Prince Andrew, Alexandra Escat, was cool and collected as she posed for a photoshoot in Ibiza at the weekend, despite being flooded with work offers.

PR guru Max Clifford, who recently met Alexandra for dinner in London said: "People are looking for her, and contacting her family and her friends.

"There is a lot of commercial and media interest, including potential TV adverts, modelling assignments and swimwear deals."

The beautiful brunette, 25, has been spending much of her time with 50-year-old Prince Andrew lately, sparking rumours of a budding romance.

The pair were spotted onboard a super-yacht off the coast of Sardinia, where Alexandra was reportedly seen rubbing sunscreen into the Duke of York's back.

A royal aide said of the rumours: "She is the wife of another man on board, is staying with the family of guests, and has categorically no link to the Duke."

However, sources close to the model have denied this: "[Andrew] is keen. That’s obvious because of constant calls and emails."
