Prince Harry is a single man. And what’s more, he is not dating sister-in-law Pippa Middleton.

We all know this for a fact now because Harry http:/” target=”_blank”>was quoted as saying so in the Daily Mirror.

“Pippa? Ha! No, I am not seeing anyone at the moment,” he reportedly said backstage Friday while attending a Killers concert in London. “I’m 100 percent single.”

Did Prince Harry really say “Ha!” — and a “Ha” worthy of an exclamation point at that? In any case, this is enough of a legitimate denial for the story to now be circulating as proof that: a. the bachelor prince is absolutely, definitely no longer with former girlfriend Chelsea Davy, and b. the Harry/Pippa connection is a no-go. Which is a shame because I thought there was potential there. After all, the Daily Mail told me so five days ago when it asked in a headline whether the “close friends” were “on the verge of becoming an item.”

Oh well. At least this clears the way for Pippa Middleton to consider dating George Clooney, as previously suggested here in Celebritology.

To (allegedly) quote Prince Harry: “Ha!”
