Prince Harry’s two-month fling with lingerie model Florence Brudenell-Bruce is over after Harry, weighed by Royal duties, suffered a bout of commitment phobia.
Harry turned down Brudenell-Bruce’s offer to join her on a holiday in Ibiza next month, which signaled an end to the relationship.
Brudenell-Bruce, 25, told friends she thought their relationship was getting serious and she seemed to have passed muster with Harry’s Royal aides.
Whether the Queen or Prince Charles had a hand in scotching the relationship is unknown.

Harry was serious enough about Florence, who is known as “Flee” by her friends, to introduce her to his brother, Prince William, who recently married Kate Middleton.
One of the reasons behind the split is thought to be his commitment to his work in the Blues and Royals in the Army Air Corps.
“Harry has a lot on his mind at the moment,’ a source told London’s Daily Mirror. “He is concentrating on his Apache helicopter training. After that he’s expecting to return to Afghanistan.”
Harry enjoyed spending time with friends over the summer, but he doesn’t want to be tied town in a relationship when training, so he called time with Flee.’
Earlier this year, he split up with long-time girlfriend Chelsy Davy after she said she wasn’t cut out for Royal life.
She attended Prince William’s wedding with him, but Harry did not ask Brudenell-Burce to join him at cousin, Zara Philips’ wedding to to rugby player Mike Tindall.
Although some in peerage may look down on her profession, Florence is educated and comes from a wealthy English family.
Her father Andrew and French wife Sophie, are successful wine merchants, and Florence has her own $3 million plus home in fashionable Notting Hill in West London.
Florence is also a descendant of the seventh Earl of Cardigan who led the Charge of the Light Brigade during the 19th century Crimean War with Russia.
