British royal Prince Harry has found love with the daughter of a wealthy stockbroker.

The younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana has been friends with LAURA GERARD-LEIGH for many years, but their friendship has recently turned to romance.

A source close to the royal couple says, "They have an awful lot in common and share a boisterous sense of humour. He seems to be quite serious at this point.

"Laura makes secret trips to see Harry in Eton (his school) or Windsor. They've met up like that a number of times and he likes the fact that she can get away without any hassle. He is allowed out in Eton or even into Windsor, but further astray and there would be trouble.

"Really, they have been restricted to romantic liaisons in that area. There are lots of quiet spots for them to meet."
