Royal watchers were in for quite a shock when OK! Magazine reported that Prince Harry was dating Pippa Middleton. Could it have actually happened? Were the two attractive younger siblings actually getting together? Rumors about the two have existed pretty much since Prince William and Kate Middleton got together, and it seems like this time around the rumors are still just that. So, if he isn't dating Pippa Middleton, who is Prince Harry dating at the moment?
As much as I think it would be pretty perfect to have another royal couple with the younger siblings, the details given by OK! just scream that this story is totally made up. Personally, I love the part about Harry wooing Pippa with his homemade pasta carbonara and the bit about them getting caught "snogging in the bathroom" by Kate at the royal wedding!
Anyway, since it's more than likely that Harry and Pippa are just friendly in-laws, I wonder if the prince is dating anyone for real? Well, it seems like Prince Harry is very single right now, but has possibly revisited some ex-girlfriends over the course of the year. Hey, I think we have all been guilty of meeting up and, um... "hanging out" with our exes.
Over the summer, Harry announced that he would be leaving the Armed Forces and spending three months on an African mission. Soon after, reports came out that Harry had been meeting up with his ex, Chelsy Davy, while in Africa, since she is from Zimbabwe.
A source told The Sun of their alleged meetings:
Harry still holds a candle for her. Chelsy has his heart... 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... He has never fallen out of love with Chelsy. She’s not like other girls; she’s strong, independent, and a rule-breaker. She does everything on her own terms.
Well, that does sound pretty serious, but later, in September when he returned to London, Prince Harry was spotted with another ex-girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, who he dated until April 2014. Bonas was seen at Harry's 31st birthday at the Cross Keys pub in London, once again sparking rumors that they would be getting back together. A source told E! News, "Cressida and Harry are not officially back on, but there is interest again from her part." Oh, juicy!
Since then, there haven't been many rumors of Harry dating anyone, only a few reports coming about his "love triangle" with Bonas and Davy.
Regardless of the rumors, it seems like Harry is just enjoying this year to follow his humanitarian efforts and be an awesome uncle to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. He even opened up to The Sun earlier this year that he wasn't very interested in dating, saying, “No, for me it’s good, I’m very happy not having a girlfriend. It’s not a case of anything... I’m not, sort of, looking. It’s cool.”
Times do change, and when he decides he wants to look, I don't think he will have any trouble.
