Rita Ora Talks Royal Wedding Fever Over ‘Fun Prince’ Harry (Exclusive)

By

No one’s more excited for the royal wedding than Rita Ora!

While promoting Fifty Shades Freed with her co-star, Eric Johnson, the 27-year-old British singer-actress couldn’t help but gush to ET’s Cameron Mathison about the May nuptials and her love of Prince Harry.

“He’s, like, the cool, fun prince, do you know what I mean?” Ora said of the 33-year-old royal during a private, exclusive interview in Paris' enchanting Le Bar at the Plaza Athenee on Monday. “All my friends are like, since we've been growing up, it’s like we wanna hang out with Harry. ‘Cause in our culture, it’s like Prince Harry is untouchable. You know, it’s a real thing.”

Ora, who recently visited Kensington Palace for a charity event, also shared what it was like to mingle with the royals.

“Of course I kept it respectful, and I’m respectful of his wedding, which I think is gonna be so fun,” she said. “I’m crazy, you know, I do love the royal family. I love everything about them."

Harry is tying the knot with American actress Meghan Markle on May 19, and Ora is “so happy” for the couple. "It’s really nice to see him happy and everything making sense," she continued. "But as a kid, everyone wanted to hang out with Harry, ‘cause he was the fun one.”

Love certainly is in the air as Ora promotes the latest installment of the Fifty Shades franchise, which comes out later this week. One big surprise is that Jamie Dornan -- who portrays leading man Christian Grey in the erotic books-turned-movies -- has a song on the soundtrack.

“Jamie can sing!” Ora -- who has a duet with Liam Payne on the soundtrack titled "For You" -- said in praise of the 35-year-old Irish actor. She added that she didn’t think he was intimidated to sing in front of her, noting, “He was in the zone. He was loving it, I think.”

Fifty Shades Freed hits theaters on Friday, Feb. 9.
