Palace sources confirm the pair have been ‘quietly dating’ for several weeks, after the divorced prince reached out to Kylie, following news she’d called off her engagement to her cheating ex Joshua Sasse.
Since then they’ve been ‘inseparable’, with the 48-year- old Aussie singer spending several nights with Andrew, 57, in the past fortnight, while their romance was the source of nonstop whispers at Windsor Castle during a recent royal reception in her honour.
Prince Philip presented the former Neighbours favourite with the Britain-Australia Society Award for 2016 at a private reception, where senior royals gave the budding relationship their tick of approval.
‘Andrew and Kylie have long been close friends, and no-one’s surprised that their relationship has finally turned romantic,’ a palace insider says.
‘Andrew phoned Kylie after her recent relationship broke down to offer his condolences. He knows what it’s like to have your heart broken so publicly.
‘Now all eyes will be on the guest list for Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa’s wedding, to see if Kylie will attend as a guest of the prince.
‘At the moment they’re inseparable – Andrew is 100 per cent smitten.’
