The 32-year-old royal has been in a relationship with the 'Suits' actress since last year, and showed things are getting serious between the pair when he splashed out on a three-week getaway for the brunette beauty's 36th birthday last month, which ended in Zambia along the Zambesi river at the luxurious Tongabezi Lodge.

The property has under 30 guests staying at once, features a floating restaurant and Honeymoon suites called Honeymoon House and Nut House, though staff are unable to say whether the lovebirds stayed in one of the special marital rooms.

A guide told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We treat everyone the same. It doesn't matter if you're Prince Harry or anyone else.

"We knew someone important was coming to stay last week but I didn't know it was the Prince until they arrived.

"The Honeymoon House and the Nut House are the ones usually used by couples but I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to let you know which one they used.

"Couples who visit us usually stay in one of those and then spend a night or two at our rooms on an island in the river, which is only accessible by boat. We have several different rooms here at Tongabezi - the family units are different from what a honeymooning couple would want, for example."

If the couple chose to dine on the floating restaurant, it would have been just the two of them.

The attendant said: "It has a table for two. Staff then use a small boat to bring out drinks, starters, main course and dessert. It's always very popular and booked up in advance." The buffet breakfast, however, is served inside so that monkeys can't get it."

While it is reported that the pair went rafting down the river, enjoyed a ­helicopter ride and visited a private island, the general manager Rudy Boribon was unable to make any comments regarding their itinerary.

He said: "I'm sorry but I won't comment on it as it's private."
