BRITAIN'S Prince Harry is determined to keep his new romance private.

The 27-year-old royal is rumoured to be dating pop star Mollie King but he is worried that public interest could wreck their relationship so the pair have decided to only see each other at carefully-selected places.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: A source said: ''Harry saw how tough it was for his brother William and Kate Middleton [now Duchess Catherine] when they first started seeing each other.

''He knows the enormous interest in them drove them apart at one point so he really doesn't want that to happen to him and Mollie.

''They have both decided to take things easy and not put pressure on their relationship.

''They want to carry on seeing each other but will only do so inside the private homes of a very few close friends who they trust.''

It is believed that Harry and Mollie were set up by his cousin Zara Phillips, who is a friend of the singer's Saturdays bandmate Una Healy.

The prince and Mollie have been spotted at parties across London in recent weeks, and as recently as last week the pair enjoyed a karaoke session with friends at London's Bunga Bunga club which lasted until 3am, after which they headed home separately.

Harry - who has been single since splitting from Chelsy Davy in 2009 - has recently said he has trouble meeting girls.

He said: ''I'm not so much searching for someone to fulfil the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on.''
