Donatella Versace is a huge admirer of Prince Harry.

The 60-year-old fashion designer loves the British royal family and thinks Harry and his older brother Prince William - who is second-in-line to the throne - have reinvigorated the UK monarchy.

In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, she said: ''I don't know whether it's because of the royal family reinterpreting themselves with Prince William. I think that has an influence, I don't know. When you see Prince Harry, he is one of us.''

Donatella is a complete Anglophile and the new Versus collection from Versace - created under the instruction of the new creative director Anthony Vaccarello, Versace - will be launched in London and she thinks Harry would be perfect to be involved.

Referring to a video of the collection, she added: ''He [Prince Harry] could be in that.''

Donatella - who is Vice President of the Versace Group - loves the UK capital because of the diverse nature of the city, and it is the different cultures that she believes make it such an exciting place.

She said: ''I find London very exciting: It's full of subcultures talking together and I love that. It wasn't like that for a while, but now I feel a lot of energy.''
