Prince Harry’s Girlfriends: Exes, Former Lovers, And Past Flings
British TV presenter Natalie Pinkham was rumoured to have dated Prince Harry. The two are friends today and have never confirmed their romance publicly.
She is now married to Owain Walbyoff, the Managing Director at Endemol Games and share two children - Wilfred and Willow.
The then 19-year-old shared details about a raunchy night with the prince in 2004, but the ‘affair’ was really just a one-night stand.
Prince Harry’s most famous relationship (before Meghan Markle, that is) was with Zimbabwean blonde beauty Chelsy Davy. The two dated on and off for seven years and Chelsy told The Times that she "couldn't cope" with the intense scrutiny their romance received.
"It was so full-on: crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn't cope… I was trying to be a normal kid, and it was horrible."
The two however have remained friends and Davy even attended Harry’s wedding!
The Australian singer was linked to the British royal after they were spotted at a concert together. Imbruglia has gone on to deny that their relationship was anything more than platonic, however.
Socialite and party girl Astrid Harbord, who is also a friend of Kate Middleton's, was rumoured to have dated Prince Harry briefly, especially after being seen out and about together.
They are still friends today.
Eddie The Gun lead singer Camille Romestrand revealed that she and Prince Harry were a ‘thing’ briefly, although Harry has never addressed these claims.
The late Love Island host was actually introduced to Prince Harry by rumoured ex-fling Natalie Pinkham in 2009.
However when the press discovered her link to the royal, they had to stop seeing each other.
Writing in her book Storm in a C Cup, Caroline revealed: "To meet a prince is so unlikely, it would be weird not to acknowledge it. However, 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."
The model is now happily married, but she spent a summer with Prince Harry in 2011.
Another one of Prince Harry’s high-profile exes, actress Cressida Bonas was with Harry for a couple of years after being introduced by the royal’s cousin Princess Eugenie.
They called it quits due to the constant media scrutiny and criticism. Cressida also attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding and married her own Harry (Wentworth-Stanley) in 2020.
The pair met in July 2010 at the Asprey World Class Cup at Surrey's Hurtwood Polo Club but in contrast to his previous girlfriends, singer King took to the spotlight rather well.
Maybe too well – Harry broke up with her because she was too open to the press about their relationship.
"Guys, I’m getting a lot of tweets about Prince Harry but...I’m not dating him and we’re not in a relationship. We’re just friends," Mollie clarified via Twitter.
Although it was never confirmed that the famous singer and prince were ever together, it was reported that the two were seen kissing and canoodling (no photos of this exist).
Goulding is now married to husband Caspar Jopling and the two are expecting their first child.
