Way back in 2003, Natalie Pinkham was rumoured to be dating Prince Harry. The Formula One Sky Sports presenter met the prince at the 1999 Rugby World Cup and they briefly dated. Natalie is now married with two children and it is said that the two have remained close friends over the years. Over the years Harry called Natalie his “confidante” and “drinking buddy”.
Glamour model Cassie Sumner met Prince Harry at London’s Chinawhite nightclub in 2003. According to the Daily Mail, Harry “made eye contact” with Cassie as she stood at the bar with her friends and he invited her to join his private table. She said: “It wasn’t long before he began cuddling up to me.” However, Cassie and Harry’s relationship was just a one time thing and she said she couldn’t see herself being “invited home for tea with Prince Charles and Camilla.”
Chelsy Davy was Harry’s first serious girlfriend. From 2004 to 2011, they had an on-again and off-again relationship. During their relationship, Chelsey met the late Queen Elizabeth II and even attended Kate and William’s wedding. However, their relationship ended as the attention Chelsy received was too much for her.
Speaking with The Times, Chelsy said: “It was so full-on: crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope.” She said that she and Harry “will always be good friends”, and she was even a guest at his and Meghan’s wedding.
Astrid Harbord is a friend of Kate Middleton and back in 2009, Astrid and Harry were reportedly linked to each other after being spotted together in London. They reportedly spent a night at a club together before heading back to Clarence House at three in the morning.
Caroline Flack and Prince Harry were reportedly introduced to one another by their mutual friend Natalie Pinkham. Caroline reportedly told friends Harry was “really sweet”, but like many of his other relationships, the pressure of the attention from the press was too much for her. In her autobiography, Caroline said: “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.”
Former The Saturday’s band member Mollie King met with Harry for a drink but their relationship was short lived. They reportedly met at the Asprey World Class Cup at Surrey’s Hurtwood Polo Club in 2010 and she said she met Harry and they “did go out for a drink”. However, their relationship soon came to an end because “she was too open about their relationship.”
Shortly after his split from Chelsy Davy, Harry had a brief romance with Camilla Romestrand. The Norwegian singer reportedly told her friends Prince Harry made her breakfast in bed after she spent the night at Clarence House. However, Harry has never confirmed their relationship and nothing else is said to have happened beyond that.
In 2011, Florence and Harry’s relationship was confirmed after they had a number of dates in secret together. Florence is the daughter of the Earl of Cardigan, and apparently they broke up because Harry didn’t want to be tied down. A source told the Daily Mail: “She felt he had a wandering eye all the time and she wasn’t really into not knowing who he was flirting with or talking to when they were apart.”
Harry and Cressida dated for two years from 2012 to 2014, and some even thought they would get married. Cressida and Harry reportedly broke up after she watched the coverage of William and Kate’s Australian tour, saying she didn’t want the attention that came with being a royal.
