Jade Thirlwall says Little Mix pals urged her to chat up Prince Harry

Jade Thirlwall has revealed her bandmates in Little Mix tried to encourage her to flirt with Prince Harry years ago.

The group came into contact with the Duke of Sussex during the Royal Variety Show in 2015, as Jade has recalled how excited the rest of the girls became at the prospect of them hitting it off.

But the 28 year old singer, who reportedly held "top secret" talks to plan her solo career recently, said that the Royal simply "wasn't interested" in her.

Jade shared the incredible story in the second part of the Little Mix At Home documentary on YouTube, which was shared on Wednesday, December 15.

The new film shows Jade, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards reflecting back on their time in the band, which has spanned over a decade of memories for the group.

During one moment, the trio shared a snap of them with former bandmate Jesy Nelson shaking hands with Prince Harry, now 37, at the show, and the entire group was beaming and giggling as they chatted away with him.

The girls were dressed up to the nines and looked utterly stunning as they enjoyed their meeting with the smart prince, but sadly a romantic connection between him and Jade wasn't to be as he "wasn't interested".

"I remember at the time I think I was the only single one and the girls were like 'go on Jade' – trying to push us onto Prince Harry," Jade laughed.


"Needless to say, he wasn't interested."

Jade and the rest of the band performed during the show before having an opportunity to meet the Royal afterwards backstage.

"Maybe I was trying to give him some eye contact, do you know what I mean?" the star laughed, as she tried to remember what happened.

Jade added that it was one of the first times Little Mix had "really dolled up in sophisticated gowns", after they won the X Factor in 2011.

She added that she had been prepared to find and bag a prince at the time, but "never got him".

Now, Jade is currently dating fellow musician Jordan Stephens, 29.

It comes after the band recently announced they will be taking "a break" from the group as they work on discovering themselves as solo artists, embarking on other projects.
