Before Prince Harry was happily married to Meghan Markle and a dad to two beautiful children, he was often the third wheel hanging out with older brother Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton. It’s not like he didn’t date — he enjoyed the on-again, off-again company of Chelsy Davy for many years and had a serious relationship with Cressida Bonas, but no one as special as Meghan.
But if we look back on his dating history, there were rumored relationships (maybe a fling or two), but no one rocked his world the way his wife has. Harry certainly enjoyed his single years (and some of the stories were wild), but when he was ready to settle down, he knew Meghan was the one “the very first time [they] met,” according to Harry at their engagement photo call, via Harper’s Bazaar. But it’s fun to take a look back at who was in the Duke of Sussex’s life before Meghan — and it’s nice to see he is still friends with some of his exes, a few who even attended his wedding.
Take a look at the photos and see how many faces you remember — a few might have only been rumors — but he definitely had a thing for blonde singers and actresses back in the day.
