It’s no secret that Prince Harry had a love life prior to meeting Meghan Markle. His first serious girlfriend was Chelsy Davy, whom he met at school and dated from 2004 to 2010. Then in 2012, Princess Eugenie introduced Harry to Cressida Bonas and they lasted two years. But the royal spotlight can be simply too much for some.

While it would be easy to assume that a prince could get any girl he wanted, it was always going to be a little tough: finding that perfect woman, one who can handle the attention and the fame and all the not-so-good stuff that comes with marrying into the British Royal Family as well as get the royal seal of approval is no easy feat. Until Harry met Meghan, that is, and the rest is history. But between his girlfriends and his now-wife, Harry was living a bachelor’s life and was content with casually dating. Enter Sarah Ann Macklin. And turns out, there may have been a bit of overlap between Sarah Ann and Meg.

According to the new book, Harry: Conversations With the Prince from royal biographer Angela Levin, Harry met the model at a private party, they exchanged texts and went out on a few dates. It wasn’t anything serious but technically speaking, he was on the dating scene when he was set up on that life-altering blind date with Meghan.

Now, no need for any ascots to get bunched; Levin wrote that Harry and Sarah weren’t exclusive and whatever was happening between the two “turned out to be just a fling.”

World 🌎 earth 🌏 day 💙 Lets talk about food waste – something I’m very passionate about and try to make sure I reduce daily. The UK average household wastes £470 of food a year. Food waste leads to a significant source of methane – a potent greenhouse gas with 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. * So let’s stop wasting food away which doesn’t need to be! Get creative! The biggest food waste are fruits and vegetables. Create a delicious vegetable curry, stir fry, vegetable chili, roasted vegetables or a fruit based desert with them! Use herbs and spices to add flavor to dishes which you feel are bland. My favourite is adding fresh basil and coriander🙏🏻 * 👫Together by changing daily habits we can help look after planet earth 🌏 #worldearthday #elminatefoodwaste photo @moeez

It should be noted that this version of Harry’s casual dating was not the same as his single period between Chelsy and Cressida. It was prior to meeting Bonas that Harry was going through some wild times, partying in Vegas and more or less behaving like a regular person in their 20s as opposed to a member of the Royal Family with an extremely public profile. Yes, things have certainly changed.

And you needn’t worry about Macklin. She and Harry may not have been a match but she’s doing just fine, thank you very much.
