Michael Jackson's publicist was so impressed by British royal Prince HARRY's dancing technique he offered the young man an audience with the king of pop.

Harry was at the Cartier International Polo party in Windsor, England on Sunday (27JUL03) when his dancefloor skills caught the eye of media man JOHN COOKE.

An eyewitness reports, "He then asked Harry if he would like to have the chance to meet Michael Jackson. Quite naturally, Harry was a little suspicious, and asked Cooke if it was for real."

Assured that everything was above board, Harry asked when Jackson was next in Britain, to which Cooke answered, "Whenever you want."

THRILLER legend Jackson was a long-standing acquaintance of Harry's late mother, DIANA, Princess Of Wales.
