Ever since the end of his last relationship, royal watchers have been keen to see Prince Harry find love. When it crops up in interviews Britain's gorgeous Prince of Hearts bats questions away, saying: "It will happen when it happens". The most recent story linked him with distant relative Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece – but this has been denied by a senior royal source.

"It's nonsense, it's not true in the least," the insider close to Harry told HELLO! Online.

However, you can see why the pretty 19-year-old fashionista, has been touted as a possible choice. Australian publication New Idea had reported that the duo had been introduced by Harry's cousin Princess Beatrice and the romance had the approval of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

While this is untrue, Olympia, the daughter of Crown Prince Pavlov of Greece and his elegant wife Marie-Chantal, does move in trendy society circles thanks to the family's connections.

She was born on 25 July 1996 in New York City – the first of five children and the only girl. The couple moved to London when Olympia was seven so that their children could grow up near Pavlov's parents, former Greek monarch King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie.

The move also had the happy result of bringing her closer to godfather Prince Charles. Constantine is Charles' second cousin and the godfather of Prince William. Other royal relatives include her great aunts, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Sofia of Spain.

When her parents wed at Hampton Court Palace in 1995, the guest list was filled with impressively regal names and the bride wore pearl-entrusted Valentino.

Along with her mother, an American heiress from the wealthy Miller family, Olympia is a regular on the front rows at fashion week. She is on good terms with Diane Von Furstenberg, Oliver Rousteing of Balmain and Karl Lagerfeld.

Olympia is respectful of her family's pedigree but keen to beat her own path. Slender, creative, thoughtful with traces of an American accent, the boho beauty told Tatler: "I'm dyslexic, so I'm more creative and visual than academic."

She spent a summer interning at Dior and has her eye on a career in fashion or photography, which is just the ticket for a modern-day, 21st century princess.
