Kate Middleton and Prince Harry have formed a close bond

Kate Middleton adores brother-in-law Prince Harry.

She and Wills spend a lot of time with the 27-year-old singleton but Harry, who's been partying in Las Vegas, is not invited to their post-Olympic romantic getaway.

The lovebirds are heading off for some alone time at their special hideaway: Tam-na-Ghar cottage on the Balmoral estate in Scotland, where Prince Charles used to take Diana.

A source says: 'They enjoy going there to spend time by themselves and used to go in their university days.

'It's a place they can just be themselves.'

Harry's had no special woman in his life since his turbulent on-off six-year romance with Chelsy Davy, 26, ended in May 2010 and his romance with Florence Brudenell-Bruce didn't work out.
