Smitten Prince Harry has been battling to woo blonde Three Musketeers film babe Gabriella Wilde.

But so far his gallant approaches have been in vain — because the 23-year-old beauty is nervous of becoming a royal girlfriend, say friends.
A source confirmed, “Harry is a huge fan of Gabriella — and she likes Harry a lot. But she is very wary of becoming another Kate Middleton.”

“She is put off by the huge glare of the spotlight that surrounds everything Kate does,” said the source.

The posh actress and model — real name Gabriella Zanna Vanessa Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe — starred as Constance opposite Orlando Bloom in last year’s film The Three Musketeers.

Previous roles include playing a vampire on TV in Doctor Who. She is currently filming a remake of the 1976 horror movie Carrie.

Harry (27), has been linked to a string of glamorous blondes since he and long-term girlfriend Chelsy Davy split five years ago. They include another actress and model — Florence Brudenell-Bruce, 26. But just months ago he admitted it was sometimes lonely being a Prince.

Charles touched by frog honour

Britain’s Prince Charles

Britain’s Prince Charles is touched to have had a species of frog named after him. The prince vowed to battle even harder in his conservation work after the rare species of Ecuadorean stream frog was named Hyloscirtus princecharlesi in honour of his campaigning to save the world's rainforests. He said, “I’m very touched. It's very nice. I have a lump in my throat, it must be a frog. I shall battle even harder now.”
