Prince Harry’s former title as “bachelor prince” made for an awkward moment on a recent trip with his wife, Meghan Markle.
The couple went on a 24-hour getaway to Amsterdam last weekend for the opening of the new Soho House, according to Vanity Fair. While on the trip, a source told the publication the prince ran into his ex-girlfriend, actress Jenna Coleman. The pair were rumoured to be coupled up in 2015, just a year before he met Markle. He had to walk past her to get to his table, and it was awkward to say the least.
“It was pretty awkward and some of the other guests were commenting on it,” an eye witness told Vanity Fair. “Jenna looked down while Harry looked straight ahead, while Meghan didn’t seem to notice. She sat through breakfast with a smile on her face, but Harry looked a bit uncomfortable.”
Despite reportedly noticing Coleman, like anyone else who has had an unexpected run-in with an ex, Harry basically ignored her.
“He’d been super friendly, saying hi to everyone, but he didn’t even acknowledge Jenna,” the witness added.
Coleman was at the breakfast with her boyfriend, Tom Hughes, who she started seeing in 2015. Hughes and the prince were reportedly pursuing Coleman at the same time, but a friend told Cosmopolitan Hughes “was really into Jenna and they hit it off.”
This isn’t the first time Prince Harry has publicly crossed paths with his exes. The royal couple ran into Burberry model Sarah Ann Macklin at a polo match earlier this summer, Vanity Fair reported. And let’s not forget two of his exes – Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy – attended his wedding.
