Prince Harry’s path to true love: The SIX ladies who got away

Prince Harry is officially loved up with Suits actress and lifestyle blogger Meghan Markle, after the couple announced their new relationship last week.

Unlike big brother William, Harry is known for his previous dalliances and slightly wilder reputation.

In the spirit of Shoutout To My Ex, we had a little look back on the young Prince's old flames, secretly hoping that we're his type. A girl can dare to dream, right?

1.Chelsy Davy

Before Prince Harry turned his attention to brunettes, he enjoyed a seven year, on-off relationship with socialite and jewellery designer and former lawyer Chelsy Davy.

The relationship struggled due to intense public scrutiny, as Chelsy was labelled a party girl despite her prestigious education and career as a high flying lawyer.

The two remain friends and Chelsy even attended Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.

2. Caroline Flack

Caroline wrote in her autobiography that she briefly dated Prince Harry back in 2009.

The TV presenter met the royal bachelor through a mutual friend and began seeing each other, but Caroline called off the romance after being called the prince's 'bit of rough' when the story of their romance was revealed. The Strictly star moved on from Prince Harry with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles and has since found love with artist Blue Logan.

3.Cressida Bonas 

Another well documented flame of the royal's, the two had a two-year relationship from 2012-2014.

The model has previously starred in a Mulberry campaign and has dipped her toe in the acting pool with a series of roles on the West End. 

Both Cressida and Chelsy blamed the intense public and press scrutiny for the demise of their relationships with Prince Harry, so it was no wonder that the red-haired royal felt the need to release a statement regarding the intense 'abuse and harassment' which was aimed at his new love since their relationship announcement. Harry clearly wants to hold onto this one!

4. Mollie King

The Saturdays singer Mollie King attempted to move on from the break up of relationship with David Gandy by bagging herself a prince back in 2012.

Prince Harry and the blonde beauty had been friends for years before things turned romantic, but Harry put the brakes on the rumoured relationship because he felt that things were going too public too soon.

Mollie tweeted denying the relationship before getting back together with her model ex-boyfriend.

5. Jenna Coleman

Before settling down with Meghan, the royal was linked to a fellow brunette beauty and Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman.

The pair were spotted in a clinch at Ascot (where else) but the relationship was reportedly short lived.

6. Cara Delevigne 

Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie revealed that the catwalk veteran has a flirty text relationship with the prince.

The Victoria's Secret model 'drunk texts' Prince Harry, according to her pal Margot, and even told him that she dreams of him.

Cara recently split from her long term girlfriend St Vincent, and revealed some new body art in the form of a snake tattoo. We hope the instances aren't related!
