WEARING a woolly hat, Prince Harry leaves a party early yesterday with TV Gladiators beauty Caroline Flack.
Caroline, 28, giggled as she emerged with the hunky royal and climbed into his people carrier before zooming off with him.
Army officer Harry, 24, who split with longterm girlfriend Chelsy Davy two months ago, had dashed straight from helicopter pilot training in Lincolnshire to be with Caroline at the dinner party on Friday night.
Dressed casually in jeans, T-shirt and grey woolly hat, the prince arrived at a house in Fulham, south-west London, where he and Sky One Gladiators presenter Caroline joined four other pals for a lively meal.
When they left the house shortly after midnight, Harry gave the brunette a helping hand as they walked to his people carrier driven by a royal protection cop.
Caroline - newly single after splitting with an indie band boyfriend - enjoyed a joke with the prince who had two bags of clothes slung over his shoulders.
An onlooker said: "They certainly looked very happy together.
There is no doubt that they were enjoying one another's company. They were sharing a joke as they walked down the street.
"There was another friend there but she was left to walk in front while Harry and Caroline walked together.
"Caroline is just Harry's type. She loves to party and is great fun on a night out. She is always up for a laugh - just like the prince is really."
Caroline, who presents Gladiators with former Arsenal footballer Ian Wright, met the third in line to the throne through their mutual friend Natalie Pinkham.
Only two weeks ago Harry was partying with TV presenter Natalie, 29, at Kitts nightclub in Chelsea, London.
Harry was dumped by his girlfriend of five years Chelsy, 23, after she got tired of his playboy antics. Caroline split with her drummer boyfriend Dave Danger of rock band The Holloways after nearly two years together.
