It seems things are heating up indeed between Prince Andrew and his purported new love interest, Croatian swimwear model Monika Jakisic after the pair were seen canoodling once again after a recent dinner rendezvous.
The pair were pictured affectionately kissing after their third dinner date in as many weeks.
Yet shit took a turn for the high stakes after the 34 year old model, 20 years younger than the Prince took to twitter posting a photo of what appeared to be a diamond engagement ring on top of a 600 pound restaurant bill.
Needless to say the tweet prompted Prince Andrew’s representatives to downplay that shit when they told: ‘ I can confirm the Duke of York is not engaged to Monika Jakisic.’
Rumors of a romantic relationship between Prince Andrew and the former girlfriend of actor George Clooney first came to the fore after the pair were seen celebrating the Prince’s birthday last month at Cecconi’s restaurant in Mayfair, where he was reportedly seen kissing her hand and cuddling up to her.
Shit got revved up not two days later when the pair were seen yet again enjoying an intimate dinner at private member’s club The Arts Club in the West End.
Rumors flared once again after the pair were once again canoodling this past Thursday evening outside the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Kensington, west London. In that meeting, Monika Jakisic took to donning skin tight leather pants and towering Louboutin heels.
Nevertheless it is now been said that the picture that emerged on the model’s twitter account was simply a congratulations message to two friends.
The model who has referred to herself as the ‘Croatian sensation’ as a spiritual humanitarian with a ‘wild sense of humor’ who loves to stay fit.
To date the palace has denied any romance between the pair, telling instead that they are merely friends who have known each other over the last decade.
Prior to marrying Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew had a string of glamorous lovers including actress Koo Stark.
Since his divorce in 1996, the duke has been linked to a string of models including South Africa’s Heather Mann and Playboy bunny Denise Martell. Something that has probably not escaped the attention of the ‘Croatian sensation….’
