The world’s most eligible bachelor had his eye on a time-traveling beauty last weekend.

Prince Harry, 30, was photographed with his hand on the knee of English actress Jenna Coleman, who plays a time-traveler’s assistant on the BBC series Doctor Who.

The prince, who was knighted by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth on Thursday, was enjoying the post-game party after the glamorous Audi Polo Match on May 31.

British tabloid The Sun published the shot on its front page Friday under the headline “Doctor Woo” and reported that a source at the party said, “He took her by the hand and led her away from the crowd in the sponsor’s tent.

“It was a very flirty, very tactile encounter. She was leaning into him and he had his hand on her knee,” the source said. “From their body language it looked like they were really enjoying each other’s company.”

Coleman, 29, who plays assistant Clara Oswald in the hit sci-fi show, has been linked to Scottish actor Richard Madden, 28, who played the late Robb Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Most recently, Madden starred as Prince Charming in Disney’s blockbuster live-action version of Cinderella – a role Harry recently played in real life.

Neither the palace nor Coleman’s rep had any comment.

Harry, who split from his girlfriend Cressida Bonas in April last year, recently talked about settling down and having children of his own, but a few days later he urged fans not to feel sorry for him, saying he wasn’t a “Bridget Jones”-style lovelorn singleton.
