Prince Harry's New Romance Got Off to a Scandalous Start

prince harryWe can certainly call him Prince Charming now that new details have emerged about how Prince Harry began dating Meghan Markle. It has been reported that Harry's lady love was seriously dating a celebrity chef when she first met the prince.


The Telegraph reports that Markle had a two-year relationship with Canadian chef Cory Vitiello. Vitiello is also a restaurateur and owns a chain called Flock. When asked if the prince was a factor in that relationship's demise, a source with ties to Vitiello told the publication, "I can't comment on that." Understandable. He has probably moved on anyway.

The report says, however, that within weeks of Meghan and Cory's breaking up, she began talking to Harry. Is that a big deal? We don't think so. It should be noted that Prince Harry follows her on Instagram, and she follows him on his secret social media page as well. Now that's a sure sign that something is going on, right? It certainly adds to all the other details coming out. Apparently the two began dating over the summer and by August, it became clear that there was something special happening between them. But not all things are lining up to royal perfection.

Meghan lives in Canada because that's where her show Suits is filmed. But she is American. That distance will be a challenge, but not one that they can't overcome. The big deal is that she's divorced -- her ex is Trevor Engelson, a manager in the entertainment field. They ended their marriage of two years in 2013. It's uncertain how the queen will feel about that fact. For us, it doesn't matter. We're going to wait to see if Meghan's Kate Middleton–approved. That will be the true test to see how long this potentially serious relationship will last.
