Harry began his US trip with a Manhattan event, the guestlist of which was bursting with socialites.
Prince Harry took Manhattan by storm last night, when he attended a dinner hosted by American Friends of The Royal Foundation. Also in attendance were music producer and Black Eyed Peas headliner Will.i.am., as well as Sean Lennon and Bright Lights Big City author John McInerney and his socialite and philanthropist wife Anne Hearst-Mcinerney, sister of Patti, and the daughter of publishing tycoon Randolph J Hearst.
Yes, it was an evening, practically packed with socialites, but Harry caught the eye of one, renowned for her beauty – Miss USA herself, Nana Meriweather. On the night of her attendance of the glitzy fundraiser at the Four Seasons, Miss Meriweather joked about the British royal whisking her away. Or was she joking? “Wouldn’t that make a great story? We should totally get married,” the beauty queen chuckled. “And he’s tall, I hear, so maybe we’ll get married.” All jokes aside though, the two royal and the beauty queen probably would make a good couple, or at least a height-appropriate one, with Meriweather towering at the impressive height of 6ft1in, just an inch shorter than Harry. Unfortunately for her, if celebrity couples are anything to go by, it definitely takes more than an appropriate height difference to make things work. But hey, it really would make a cute story, if a really improbable one.
