After meeting his future wife, Harry had a “fling” with a Burberry model, according to fresh reports. He is said to have “bombarded her with texts” but wouldn’t commit. Royal biographer Angela Levin said the pair met at a private party in her book, Harry: Conversations with the Prince.
Ms Levin said: “During the very early staged of his relationship with Meghan, Harry was thought to have gone on dates with Burberry model Sarah Ann Jacklin.
“They met at a private party, he took her number and bombarded her with texts.
“But it turned out to be just a fling.
“A friend said: ‘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 was a bit noncommittal.’

“There has been some confusion too about whether or not Meghan had at the time broken up with her boyfriend of two years, celebrity chef Cory Vitiello.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were introduced by a mutual friend who set up a blind date between them.
The pair had about six months of privacy until their relationship became public.
Meghan would stay in Kensington Palace when she visited Harry as the couple wouldn’t go two weeks without seeing each other.
