From Hollywood royalty to a bonafide British prince! Sexy Croatian model Monika Jakisic, an ex-girlfriend of George Clooney, is now dating Prince Andrew, a source reveals exclusively to Us Weekly. Based in London, Jakisic (known as the "Croation Sensation"), 33, and Sarah Ferguson's ex-husband "reconnected through friends recently," the source explains.
Indeed, the low-key pair went on a date to Cecconi's in London to celebrate the British royal's 54th birthday on Feb. 19. "They sat next to each other at an intimate table by the front of the restaurant and were cuddling up to each other," an eyewitness tells Us. "Andrew was making Monika laugh and kissing her hand."
During his birthday dinner with his stunning new love, "Monika gave him a birthday card and the server brought out a white birthday cake for dessert," the observer adds.
The couple continued their PDA-fest two days later at The Arts Club in Mayfair, where he wrapped his arms around Monika and kissed her, an onlooker says: "It was obvious they are a couple, they looked like two lovebirds!"
A rep for Buckingham Palace tells Us: "We never comment on the private time of members of the Royal Family."
Royal refresher: Andrew is Queen Elizabeth's third child and second son; father to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, the Duke of York is currently fifth in line to the British throne. He and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, divorced amicably in 1996 after a decade of marriage. The friendly exes shot down false rumors last August that they had reconciled.
Jakisic and Clooney, meanwhile, have had an on-and-off fling since 2004. They reconnected in September of last year — following his split with Stacy Keibler — with Jakisic sleeping over at his L.A. mansion. "They spent hours talking, and have an incredible connection," an insider told Us at the time. "He's been calling and texting her ever since."
