Hay! Dont You Know Im a Prince?

Playboy Prince Harry became His Royal Hayness in a rustic retreat in Romania - when he slept on a mattress made of straw.

Harry swapped the luxuries of a royal Easter at Windsor Castle for an antique cot with straw-stuffed bedding in one of his father Prince Charles's restored 12th century cottages where guests have to make their own fire in the hearth if they want hot water to washing.

One local near the ancient Saxon hamlet Valea Zalanului explained: "It is a clean and healthy life. Buy when they say you have to make your own bed they really mean it and hand you a sackful of straw.. The prince seemed to love it"

But Harry's undercover holiday was blown when news of his stay broke in local media and he was followed by scores of adoring female fans wherever he went.

One local mayor Nagy Istvan even brought his daughter Valea Zalanului to meet the prince after presenting him with a bottle of traditionally-brewed powerful plum brandy.

"He is single, I bet he came here because he heard Romanian girls are beautiful. I don’t know if he would like me but anyhow I would love to be a duchess like Kate," villager Loredana Ludu told local media in Viscri during a flying sightseeing visit.

The prince's hostess, Countess Ana Kalnoky, was coy when asked if Harry - who recently said how lonely life can be as a royal bachelor - had found a holiday romance.

"A girl? I don’t know, but we very much hope so!" she told local reporters.

Earlier motorbike mad Harry - who was staying with a small group of friends - had challenged his bodyguards to a race on Enduro motorcross machines in thick snow.

Then on the way to the airport yesterday (monday) Harry insisted on stopping at a local garage to stock up on sandwiches and soft drinks before heading to the Henri Coanda International Airport in Bucharest.

But the prince -who'd arrived in the country on a budget Wizz Air flight - was soon back to a more luxurious life when he flew back to the UK on a private jet.
