Prince Harry rang in 2016 with a new fling, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

While vacationing in L.A., the 31-year-old British royal hooked up with aspiring actress and former Dior PR assistant Juliette Labelle. Days before New Year’s Eve, “Juliette and Harry hit it off and had an instant connection,” says an insider close to Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s uncle. “It will probably just end up being a short-term thing, but they’re texting and using a lot of emojis.”

Still, the blonde shouldn’t expect the diamond-ring symbol to pop up in her text messages. Harry, who split with his love of nearly two years, Cressida Bonas, in 2014, “is a single guy and would love to meet someone special,” says the source. “But he does have a potential love interest in London!” 

After all, Harry would like to settle down. “I would love to have kids right now,” he said in a May interview with Sky News. “There come times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is, but I don't think you can force these things. It will happen when it's going to happen."
