(Newser) – It appears it didn’t take Prince Harry long to recover from his breakup with Chelsy Davy: The royal struck up a friendship with singer Natalie Imbruglia and has been constantly texting her, the Mail reports. The 24-year-old prince attended Imbruglia’s 34th birthday party after being introduced by Sir Richard Branson’s son, and the two “spent ages giggling together,” says a source.

Imbruglia, whose marriage broke up last year, finds Harry “sexy and very charming,” but one friend isn’t sure romance is in the air: “I don’t think he’s her type. She tends to go for rock musicians, not public schoolboys.” Meanwhile, Harry’s pals say he’s also been texting ex Chelsy quite a bit, and a reconciliation for the pair—who split last month after 5 years together—is possible.
