McCartney reveals Prince Harry's crush on daughter

British rock royalty Paul McCartney has revealed that Prince Harry fancied his daughter.

British rock royalty Paul McCartney has revealed that Prince Harry fancied his daughter.

The ex-Beatle said the Prince only had eyes for his photographer daughter Mary during a surprise visit to his studio.

And he said there was still time for a union of rock and British royalty.

McCartney made the revelation during an interview with Virgin Radio DJ Geoff Lloyd which will be broadcast today.

He was reminiscing about a surprise visit to his studio by Diana, Princess of Wales, and Princes William and Harry 14 years ago.

McCartney said: "She came in with her two lads, we were rehearsing, we were asked to have lunch with her, like a lot of people I think she was great, a real nice lady.

"What I do remember is I was sitting next to Harry, my daughter Mary came in and sat down and Harry turns to me and said: 'Who's that?' and I said: 'That's my daughter Mary' and he said: 'She's awfully attractive isn't she'."

McCartney added that "there's still a chance" that rock royalty and British royalty could come together.

Prince Harry was just eight - and Sir Paul's oldest daughter Mary was 24 - when he commented on her attractiveness.

He also revealed that music is his lifeblood through good and bad times. McCartney is in the process of divorcing his wife Heather Mills McCartney after a four-year marriage which produced his third daughter Bea.

He said: "Music is really good for me, it's been helping me through the difficult times."

McCartney also demonstrated he is not such a dab hand with the scissors by cutting the DJ's hair, and said his late wife Linda often cut his hair "sometimes with disastrous results".
