Before he had his fairytale ending and married the love of his life Meghan Markle, the most eligible bachelor in the UK and probably in the whole world, Prince Harry was turned down by some beautiful ladies.
Scroll down to see who are some of them!
Chelsy was Harry’s first love and most serious girlfriend before Meghan – they dated on and off for seven years, from 2004 to 2011. They officially broke up in 2011, shortly after William and Kate’s wedding. One of the biggest issues in their relationship is rumored to be the media attention. “I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope. I was young, I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible,” Chelsy has said in the past. Ever since they separated as a couple the two have stayed in touch and it was reported that they had a final fling in South Africa in 2015.
In September 2015 The Sun reported that: “Harry still holds a candle for her. Chelsy has his heart. They saw each other recently. There’s still very much something between them, but Chelsy won’t commit yet because she doesn’t want to lead a life in the spotlight. Harry’s very sensitive to that.”
And royal reporter Katie Nicholl told InStyle magazine a few days before the royal wedding: “You sort of get the feeling that neither of them was quite ever willing to completely let go of that love affair. They’d carved their names into one of the tree trunks on the family estate. It was such a love affair, it really was. Right up until 2015 they were trying to give it another chance. I was quite struck by that and I think everyone that’s been in love, you know, you never forget your first love, and in that respect, I think Prince Harry was no different. And I think what’s so lovely is he still manages to have a friendship with Chelsy, and there’s that amazing respect between the two of them. Neither of them has spoken about their relationship and I think you have to respect and admire them for that.”
Cressida and Harry dated for 2 years between 2012 and 2014 and there were even rumors that the couple got engaged. They eventually had to break up because Cressida wasn’t quite ready to give up her career and follow the royal protocol.
Talking about dating Harry and the relentless speculation about their life together, she said: ‘That stuff is not real. It’s really important to remember that all it is is noise – noise that can be very loud at times. A close friend of Harry’s said: ‘Cressida was about as interested in the whole Royal thing as Chelsy was, which is to say not at all. Kate [Middleton] probably loved William very deeply very early, so she got it into her head this was what she was going to have to live with, and at least Kate will be Queen one day.’
‘That’s a fairly substantial thing to do with your life, and if you conduct yourself well it will have an impact on a massive institution in British public life. ‘If you are married to the spare, what kind of life is that? I think that’s Harry’s problem, to find anyone who will marry into that – because most substantial women wouldn’t.’
Harry was mostly seen with singer Mollie King partying in clubs and most of the photos of them are from evening events, as they don’t have a single photo together during the day. Anyways, the romance came quickly to an end after Harry found out that Mollie was very open about their party nights.

Florence is an aristocratic lingerie model and was one of Harry’s first girlfriends. She ended the relationship reportedly when Harry moved to US for his helicopter training.
Natalie is a sports presenter and she and Harry met back in 2006. The same year pictures of the couple getting frisky surfaced on the internet and sparkled the rumors of them dating. Sources said that Harry was smitten with her, but she insisted that the two are just friends.
Harry briefly dated X Factor’s host back in 2009, but the couple had to break up quickly after the press found out about them.
Reports say that Harry was completely smitten by Emma and as soon as she broke up with her then boyfriend, the Prince saw the opportunity the act. Unfortunately the actress was not interested in leaving her career behind and politely turned him down.
