It was Prince Harry’s height – a lofty 6ft 2in – that has caught the eye of his latest admirer, none other than Miss USA Nana Meriwether.
Attending a celebrity-studded fund-raising reception at Manhattan’s famous Four Seasons Restaurant alongside Prince Harry, the raven-haired beauty (officially 6ft 1in, but 6ft 4ins in towering Zara heels) declared she was technically royalty in America, and wondered if Prince William’s younger brother was single and if he might be interested in making an honest woman of her.
Nana Meriwether said last night: “He is doing a wonderful job of representing your country here. Miss USA is like royalty in the States, so I am really hoping to meet him.
“He is single, right? Well so am I. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we married. And he is very tall and good looking, I hear. Perfect. We are meant to be.”
Celebrities and the super-rich queued last night to dine with Prince Harry, Manhattan’s man of the moment.
Prince Harry, 28, was guest of honor at a glitzy reception thrown by the American Friends of The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Among the notable guests was Black Eyed Peas singer Will.I.Am, Sean Lennon, son of Beatle John, Bright Lights Big City author John McInerney and his socialite and philanthropist wife Anne Hearst-Mcinerney, sister of Patti, and the daughter of publishing tycoon Randolph J Hearst.
Also joining the throng was Rudin real estate heiress Beth de Woody.
British PM David Cameron, who is also in New York and earlier attended an event with the prince, also leant his support.
