It said Chelsy Davy accompanied Harry, 20, the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, during his two-week trip to a polo ranch in Argentina, even staying in the same guest house.

The prince, who starts army officer training at Sandhurst military college in the new year, returned to Britain on Friday as officials poured cold water on reports that he had been the target of an attempted kidnapping.

"Harry spent almost the entire trip at the side of South African student Chelsy, regarded by insiders as his 'first true love'," the Mail on Sunday said in a dispatch from Buenos Aires and Cape Town.

Confronted by its reporter in Cape Town, Davy -- a former pupil at an elite girls' school not far from Charles's country estate Highgrove in the west of England -- told the tabloid: "I have known Harry since I was at school".

When asked about a romance, she replied: "I have heard people linking us together." Then she ran back into her house when shown a snapshot of her getting off a plane during an outing with the prince to shoot pigeons.

The Mail on Sunday said the pair have been an item for eight months, with Harry making discreet weekend visits to South Africa to see her when he was in Lesotho earlier this year to work with AIDS sufferers.

It said Davy's father runs a game farm in Zimbabwe, but gave no details.

With his older brother Prince William still in university, media attention has been focused on Harry, who is third in line to succeed Queen Elizabeth II after his father and sibling.

Last month Harry made headlines when he scuffled with a photographer outside an exclusive London nightclub.
