Prince Harry 'pursuing Doctor Who star'

Britain's Prince Harry is reportedly finding time to text Jenna Coleman while on his three-month African expedition.

The two were linked in June after they were spotted getting on well at a polo event, held by Audi.

And it seems the reported romance hasn't dimmed in the last two months.

“Harry must be keen on Jenna to be staying in touch with her, despite all his tireless charity work. They seem to really get along so a proper date could be on the cards when he returns," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

Harry, 30, is in Africa on a trip to save endangered rhinos and elephants. The dedicated prince even missed the christening of his niece, Princess Charlotte, last month as his African adventure was already underway.

Jenna, 29, is known to TV audiences as Doctor Who's sidekick Clara. She previously dated Game of Thrones star Richard Madden.

When she was spotted with Harry earlier this summer, the two are said to have flirted over cocktails.

"Harry started chatting to Jenna just after they'd finished eating dinner at the event. They didn't seem to know one another. When the singer John Newman had just taken to the stage, Jenna and Harry went to sit outside on the decking. They sat opposite each other and chatted while they drank espresso martinis," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"Once inside they danced together and chatted at the bar. Harry seemed in high spirits and at one point, when Jenna was dancing away from him with her friends, Harry walked over and started playing with her dress. He was very openly flirty and tactile. She looked pretty bemused by it all," said a second insider.
