Wedding bells are ringing for Prince Harry and actor Meghan Markle. In an official statement, the royal family has declared the engagement of the two and we can’t wait for all the wedding details to roll out. But you already know that, don’t you?
Did you know, however, that there are many ladies whom the prince dated before he popped the question to Markle? The numbers will surprise you (they shocked us!!)
Here’s a look at a few of the ladies who came very close to marrying into the royal family.
Back in 2003, fans of the royals had their suspicions about Harry’s romantic relationship with this TV presenter. It was, however, never confirmed that they dated.
After being introduced by their mutual friend, Natalie Pinkham (talk about royal drama!), the two had a quick fling in 2009. Flack summed the whirlwind romance up in her autobiography Storm In a C Cup. “Once the story got out, that was it. We had to stop seeing each other. I was no longer Caroline Flack, TV presenter, I was Caroline Flack, Prince Harry’s bit of rough,” she wrote.
For a brief period at the end of 2010, Prince Harry dated the Eddie the Gun lead singer too.
The two had an on-and-off relationship starting in 2004 before finally calling it quits in 2011. In a recent interview, Davy admitted she couldn’t handle the public scrutiny. “It [the attention] was so full-on: crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope,” she said.
After Harry ended his romance with Chelsy, he had a summer fling with the model!
The two dated from 2012 to 2014 and it was rumoured that Prince Harry spent his 31st birthday with Bonas. The two were allegedly introduced by Princess Eugenie.
Last year, it was rumoured that Prince Harry was “courting” the singer!
