Prince Harry's rumoured love interest has spoken out after being linked to the British royal. Juliette Labelle is reported to have met Harry during his private visit to her home city Los Angeles over the New Year and kept in touch ever since.
However the 22-year-old – who works as a PR assistant for fashion label Dior – has denied meeting the Prince. Speaking to The Sun, Juliette said: "I don't know Prince Harry."

Sources had previously told the newspaper that Harry had enjoyed getting to know Juliette during his break, explaining: "The Prince enjoyed hanging out with Juliette. She's very much his type and they hooked up.
"She's blonde, cool and well-connected. She's also fun, confident and doesn't mind showing off how sexy she is. And she has that boho free spirit he likes."
The blonde beauty has since been at the subject of seemingly unwanted public attention, and made her Instagram profile private to avoid giving too much away about her personal life.
The Prince was recently linked to Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece
Juliette is not the first female Harry has been linked to in 2016; it was suggested in January that he had struck up a romance with fellow royal Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece – but the reports were denied by a senior royal source.
"It's nonsense, it's not true in the least," an insider close to Harry told HELLO! Online.
Royal watchers have been hoping for Harry to find love again following the end of his relationship with Cressida Bonas in 2014, however he has previously said that "there's a lot of things to get done before settling down".

Speaking to ITV News in September, Harry said: "I think everyone looks forward to settling down, but in the meantime, it's work as usual."
In a separate interview the Queen's grandson insisted he was "very happy" being single, and laughed off a comparison to Bridget Jones when it was suggested by a reporter.
"Bridget Jones? That's sad," he told the Sunday Mirror. "No, for me, it's good. I'm very happy not having a girlfriend. It's not a case of anything. I'm not, sort of, looking. It's cool."
