Watch Ellie Goulding awkwardly dodge Prince Harry questions

The popstar couldn’t keep a straight face as she was quizzed about her rumoured flame, Prince Harry.

‘Love Me Like You Do’ singer Ellie Goulding was left red-faced after an interview with Australian programme The Project took a turn for the awkward!
The popstar, who the tabloids have linked to Prince Harry in the past, couldn’t hide her surprise at being asked by host Carrie Bickmore about whether or not she was planning to have the royal’s child.
Clearly shocked at the unexpected and somewhat sudden address of rumours, Ellie couldn’t hide her embarrassment as she searched for the words to respond.
“Please don't let me go red,” the 29-year-old quipped while dramatically fanning her face, which was flushing more pink by the second.
Laughing, she went on: “I’m bright red! Why did I have a feeling that was going to come up?”
“You naughty people,” she added while the panel and studio audience squealed in delight.

Carrie’s grilling comes after rumours circulated of flirtatious texts between the blonde bombshell and the very eligible royal after her split from boy band member, Dougie Poynter, in March.
Further adding fuel to the fire, the British pair reportedly hit it off when they attended the Audi Polo challenge in Berkshire earlier this year.
And things allegedly got even steamier at the after party… "Harry was really going for it after the polo – he was drinking and dancing," a source explained to The Sun at the time.
Onlookers claim that the pair were "secretly courting" following their romantic evening.
"They were part of a wider group including Tom Hardy but Harry and Ellie only had eyes for each other all night – they spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets," they continued.
Witnesses claim they wrapped up the evening with one final smooch under a blanket and then "Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day.
"Ellie left about five minutes later."
The rumoured couple seem to be rather comfortable around each other.
Indeed, the pair have been long-standing friends with Ellie performing at Prince William and Duchess Catherine's wedding in 2011.
Ellie was also sang at the closing ceremony for the 2014 Invictus Games as a favour to the Prince.
The pair's courting would indeed make sense as Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s uncle recently admitted that he can't wait to settle down and find ‘The One’.
"If or when I do find a girlfriend, I will do my utmost to ensure that me and her can get to the point where we’re actually comfortable with each other before the massive invasion that is inevitably going to happen into her privacy,” Harry told The Sunday Times.
