Prince Harry, who is third in line to the British throne and currently stationed in Afghanistan (a world-traveling soldier Prince!), is reportedly smitten with the princess of pop, newly divorced Katy Perry.

UK mag The Daily Star has the scoop: Harry has asked that Katy be invited to perform at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, an annual event that takes place at Buckingham Palace. In other words, Harry asked his grandmum to invite his crush to her big party!

A source says Harry “sees this as an opportunity to get close to Katy. And he is confident his charm will win her over.” Not to mention that whole HRH thing.

Will Katy bite the royal bait? Only time will tell, but the singer reportedly already has a crush on Harry — and even has a nickname for him: “Ginger Ninja.” Yes, it is The Best Nickname of All Time.
