Did Prince Harry Secretly Date a British Model While Dating Meghan Markle?

Prince Harry is completely in love with his wife, former actress Meghan Markle. But, the handsome prince hasn’t always been a one-woman man. Prince Harry has a colorful and long list of previous relationships, rumored flings, one night stands. A deeper look at the prince’s past loves reveals that he was involved with other women even while he was trying to win Markle’s heart. Now, as Prince Harry keeps a more low-profile life, it’s hard to imagine he ever was dating several women at once.

Prince Harry’s most notable and long-lasting relationship is with blonde bombshell Chelsy Davy. They were often seen together from 2004 to 2011 and even attended Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding together. Their relationship ended shortly thereafter. Fans of the royal couple were convinced that Davy was going to be “the one” and it was disheartening to see Prince Harry and Davy fall out of love

In 2009, when Prince Harry was reportedly on a break from his relationship with Davy, he was spotted out and about with singer Natalie Imbruglia. The prince and Imbruglia dated for a few months during which time they were seen bowling, and at a Killers concert.  

Rumor has it that Prince Harry dated Norwegian singer, Camilla Romestrand, for a few months in 2010 too. But not long after the pair was spotted together he was seen again with Davy. 

Prince Harry also dated lingerie model, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, indulged in dancing and drinks with pop singer Mollie King, publicly kissed singer Ellie Goulding, and wooed numerous other young and beautiful ladies. But, it wasn’t until he met Markle that the prince finally was ready to settle down. 

Prince Harry was dating someone while pursuing Meghan Markle

Prince Harry might not have been completely ready to settle down when he first met Markle. Although their relationship seemed to get off the ground quite quickly reports have surfaced that the prince was also dating a British model while he started seeing Markle as well. 

Allegedly Prince Harry was seeing Sarah Ann Macklin, texting her and seeing her in secret when Markle was not in the country. 

“Their fling is an open secret among her friends,” a friend of Macklin told reporters. “It eventually fizzled out but they are on friendly terms.” 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s storybook romance

Markle’s appearance in Prince Harry’s life was a surprise to followers of Prince Harry’s social life. The royal bachelor definitely had a “type” which was usually blonde and aristocratic. The brunette actress seemed to truly sweep Prince Harry off his feet.

Older than Prince Harry, and established in both her career and her opinions, Markle is a drastic change. For one, she’s outspoken about her beliefs.

Markle has given up many things from her previous ‘royal-free’ life to start a family with Prince Harry. In similar style, Prince Harry has done his best to make his new wife happy. He limits his hunting trips, as Markle finds hunting offensive. He has also toned down his party-going nature to better suit his adult, married, lifestyle. 

Prince Harry’s new priorities

Of course, much of their relationship is based on the fact that they wanted to begin their family. Prince Harry’s priorities no longer hinge on having a good time or finding a pretty girl to have by his side. He permanently has his pretty girl alongside him now, as Markle has fully embraced her royal lifestyle. His new son has clearly become his focus, as the young couple learns how to be parents. 

Although Markle has repeatedly been accused of being the cause of changes in Harry’s behavior, the bottom line is that becoming a father is a life-altering experience. The prince just really wants to be a good dad.
