We want to be pals with the Prince!
Ellie Goulding was snapped cuddling up to Prince Harry at the Invictus games closing ceremony last night.
The 27-year-old popstar revealed that she was personally invited by the Prince to perform at the event at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where she jumped around stage in an interesting sports bra and baggy trousers combo before seeking out Harry, who was the games organiser, backstage.
The pair have been good friends for a number of years, with Harry even landing Els a spot performing at his brother, Prince William’s, Wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011 – How fancy is that?
Ellie’s hot McBusted boyfriend, Dougie Poynter, was nowhere to be seen at the closing ceremony but the two reunited later that evening, with the singer heading to Stella McCartney’s LFW party after her performance.
Cuddling up to both Prince Harry and Dougie Poynter in just one night?
We’re super jealous.
And they aren’t the only famous men that the popstar had an encounter with yesterday, but this next one was much less huggy-huggy and much more awkward and uncomfortable.
Yes, Ellie was interviewed by her ex-boyfriend, and Radio 1 DJ, Greg James as part of the BBC’s coverage of the Invictus Games closing ceremony, and fans just couldn’t get over how totally awks the entire thing was, with Ellie seemingly trying to avoid all and any eye contact with her ex squeeze.
Taking to Twitter to share their second-hand embarrassment, viewers all appeared to have the same word come to mind: AWKWARD.
