Prince Harry’s night with the Queen of Pop
It was quite a bizarre sight – a prince out drinking with the Queen of Pop.
Prince Harry spent more than two hours talking to Madonna and her husband Guy Ritchie at Mayfair’s Mahiki club.
The unlikely threesome discussed Madonna and Guy’s adoption of African baby David Banda last October while knocking back £100-a-pop champagne Treasure Chest cocktails.
The 21-year-old prince reportedly had tears in his eyes as he spoke to Ritchie at length about the orphans he has befriended in Africa. Harry has founded his own charity, called Sentebale, to help millions of Aids orphans in Lesotho.
One reveller in Mahiki last night said: “Harry wasn’t drunk, even though he had a few cocktails from the Mahiki Treasure Chest. The more he talked to Guy about Africa, Aids and the children, the more he was tearful. He seems to be a very sensitive guy. He also gushed to Guy about how caring his girlfriend Chelsy is towards the African orphans.”
After their intense discussion, the mood became lighter as Harry and Madonna, 48, swapped exercise tips and compared notes on how much they trained, how far they run and their respective injuries – which raised a few giggles among the party.
It certainly looked as if the singer had enjoyed her night out with the prince as she emerged looking the worse for wear in the early hours of this morning.
At one stage her head was rolled back, eyes closed and her hair draped over her face. Ever the gentleman, Guy certainly clutched her tightly to make sure she didn’t take a tumble as they emerged from the club in the early hours. Earlier in the evening the couple enjoyed a meal in the recently reopened Scott’s fish restaurant in Mayfair – a favourite A-list haunt.
