The 28-year-old ‘3 Words’ singer - who has joined forces with Harry’s father Prince Charles on a charity project - admits she has a soft spot for the third-in-line to the throne.

And lucky for her, the feeling is mutual with Harry already having told former ‘X Factor’ winner Joe McElderry - who was mentored by the Girls Aloud star - he was, “so jealous that you got to spend weeks with Cheryl”.

Asked if she knew about his feelings, Cheryl told Marie Claire magazine: “I do! I love Prince Harry. Actually, I had a dream last night I married Prince Harry and was a real-life princess.

“It’s true. And Charles was my father-in-law instead of my charity partner!” It looks like Harry could be seeing a bit more of Cheryl now that Charles has agreed to mentor her through her “long-held ambition” to help teenagers in her home town of Newcastle. About the collaboration between the Prince’s Trust and the Cole Foundation, she told: “I have always been a great admirer of the work of the Prince’s Trust with disadvantaged young people across the UK. It’s the perfect charity for my foundation to support.                         –ES
