The rumour mills are hinting that Kylie Minogue has been ‘quietly dating’ Prince Andrew ‘for weeks’ following her split with Joshua Sasse in February.
According to a magazine, it is alleged that the pair, who are said to be ‘close friends’, got back in contact after the Australian singer-songwriter split with her fiancé earlier this year.
New Idea magazine in Australia claims that Kylie, 48, and Andrew, 57, began speaking more frequently after he reportedly contacted her to offer his condolences.
Since then, Kylie has allegedly spent several days with Andrew over the last fortnight.
A palace source reportedly told the publication: ‘At the moment they’re inseparable – Andrew is 100 per cent smitten.’

The source also allegedly claimed that ‘Kylie is someone that Her Majesty would welcome into the royal family with open arms.’
They said: ‘ Everyone’s hoping this romance goes the distance.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted both Kylie and Andrew’s representatives for comment.

Earlier this month the 48-year-old picked up a Britain-Australia Award.
She had a private audience with The Duke Of Edinburgh, Patron of the Britain-Australia Society, in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
The British-Australian Award is given to individuals who make a ‘significant contribution’ to the Australia-UK relationship.
With Kylie’s long-running pop career, and hits such as I Should Be So Lucky, I Can’t Get You Out Of My Head and Spinning Round, it’s fair to say her contribution is way more than ‘significant’.
Prince Andrew was married to Sarah Ferguson from 1986 until the couple divorced in 1996.
The couple share daughters Princess Beatrice, 28, and Prince Eugenie, 27.
