Prince Harry is now the poster boy for being an ideal husband to Meghan Markle and an amazing father to his two kids, Archie and Lilibet. However, it was not the case in his teenage and early adulthood. Before meeting Markle, the royal prince was known for his colorful and wild life.
Prince Harry now looks like a calm and sorted personality, but there was a time when partying was his second nature. In the 2000s and early 2010s, there were a lot of rumors about dating life. The Duke of Sussex had his fair share of affairs and link-ups before finally settling down with Meghan Markle.
A glance at the dating life of Prince Harry
The TV sports presenter Natalie Pinkham was the first woman with whom Prince Harry’s dating rumors made the headline. As per Town&Country, the two met each other for the first time in 1999 during the Rugby World Cup. It was in 2003 that they dated each other for a brief period. Following the breakup, both moved on and are said to be on good terms. Pinkham married Owain Walbyoff in 2012 and the couple has two children.
Following Pinkham, Prince Harry indulged in a serious relationship with Chelsy Davy. The two were quite serious about each other as they were together from 2004 to 2011. The Duke also took Davy home for a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II. Meanwhile, she stole all the thunder by accompanying the royal Prince to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s marriage in 2011.
Harry’s relationship with Cressida Bonas
Harry and Davy broke up as the latter found it uncomfortable to live the life of a royal. She successfully runs her jewelry business and tied the knot with Sam Cutmore-Scott earlier this year. After Davy, the Sussex royal found himself in another serious relationship with Cressida Bonas.
The two dated each other for three years, from 2012 to 2014. His cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice introduced the actress to Prince Harry. There were rumors of Prince and Bonus’ engagement as well, but they parted on a pleasant note. She is now happily married to Harry Wentworth-Stanley.
Lastly, another affair of the royal prince that made headlines was with Sarah Ann Mackling. The model and the Duke were seeing each during the early stages of Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle. They met each other at a private party. However, Mackling and the Prince’s wavelength and lifestyles did not match.
Following his marriage with Markle in 2018, the Sussex royal has been nothing but a good boy. Do you like the pair of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry? Let us know in the comments.
