Harry the prince of dou­bles

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Prince Harry re­port­edly en­joyed a num­ber of dates with a Burberry model while woo­ing Meghan Markle.

The 32-year-old royal is said to be smit­ten with the 35-year-old Suits ac­tress, who he started dat­ing dur­ing the sum­mer. But it has been claimed that be­fore things got se­ri­ous, Harry also pur­sued Burberry model Sarah Ann Mack­lin, 27, who pre­vi­ously dated David Gandy.

A source told the Mail on Sun­day: “Their fling is an open se­cret among her friends. David Gandy knew that Harry was pur­su­ing her and tried to get her back. At one point she had the coun­try’s most fa­mous male model and a prince vy­ing for her af­fec­tion and the nov­elty was not lost on her.”

“She ended up turn­ing David down and dat­ing Prince Harry. It even­tu­ally fiz­zled out, but they are on friendly terms.”

Another source added: “They were in­tro­duced at a so­cial gath­er­ing and Harry made a bee­line for her. She was very flat­tered by the at­ten­tion and they went on a few dates. Ev­ery­thing was kept very be­low the radar.”

“They got on, but are quite dif­fer­ent. She is very clean-liv­ing and barely drinks, and in that re­spect they were on a dif­fer­ent wave­length. Harry also seemed a bit non-com­mit­tal and it never re­ally got off the ground. Things fiz­zled out be­fore he went to Africa for a month in Au­gust.”

And Harry is now said to be smit­ten with US ac­tress Meghan, with former royal but­ler Grant Har­rold say­ing the pair are “in love”. He told The Sun­day Mir­ror: “Harry loves her and she loves him. And that will be what mat­ters in the eyes of the Queen and Prince Charles. I don’t see any rea­son why Meghan couldn’t be The One.”

Meghan fin­ishes film­ing ‘Suits’ in Novem­ber and is ex­pected to travel to the UK to spend time with Harry over the fes­tive sea­son.
