Prince Harry’s former fling Catherine Ommanney has labelled Meghan Markle ‘manipulative and controlling’ and said she ‘would have loved him to marry someone like Kate Middleton’.

Appearing on GB News last night, the Real Housewives of DC star, 51, told host Dan Wootton that the Duke of Sussex is ‘not the person’ she once knew.

The mother-of-three – who grew up in London – claims she had a one-month fling with the royal in 2006 when she was 34 and he was 21. 

Although she has yet to read Prince Harry’s memoir, which hit shelves on Tuesday, the reality star says she was ‘shocked’ to hear about some of its most controversial revelations – including the Duke detailing how he lost his virginity to an unknown older woman in a field behind a pub.

‘I’ve got absolutely no idea why [he’s done this],’ she said. ‘But I’m shocked.’

When quizzed about Harry’s marriage, Catherine admitted: ‘I would have loved for him to have ended up with somebody like Kate, who is suitable to the role.

‘But he has in fact, in my opinion, chosen somebody who is almost polar opposite and I genuinely feel really sad because he’s dug himself a really big hole.’

On top of this, the reality star says she was ‘pleased’ that the Queen had not been able to read Prince Harry’s bombshell book.

Elsewhere in the interview, Catherine says she disagreed with her former lover for having revealing how many members of the Taliban he killed while serving in Afghanistan. 

She furiously added: ‘What is he doing?’

In response to Dan speculating that he has been ‘badly advised’ by a PR team, Catherine added: ‘I mean, look who he is with. [Meghan is] manipulating and controlling and he’s not the guy that I met.

‘I know it was a long time ago but I really definitely think that he’s not the person I met at all.’

In his recent TV interview with Tom Bradby, Prince Harry said he has ‘never been happier’ since quitting the Royal Family and moving to Montecito, California. However, the Duke’s former lover questioned if this was really the case.

She continued: ‘He’s saying he’s happy but he doesn’t really look happy to me […] He looks the saddest I’ve ever seen him.’

After their romance fizzled out in 2006, Catherine says she always remained on friendly terms with the Prince and recounted how he ‘pushed past security’ to greet her at an event they were both attending years later.

She continued: ‘I still have a lot of respect for him and vice versa. But I’m just really sad for him and I’m sad for the monarchy and the Royal Family.’ 

In November 2022, Catherine said in an interview with The Sun she first met Prince Harry, now 38, in a bar in Chelsea while he was still in a long-term on-off relationship with socialite Chelsy Davy. 

She says that after meeting in a bar, the pair then went to Eclipse nightclub in South Kensington together, before heading to one of his friend’s houses.

There, she says, they ‘shared a cigarette on the steps outside and [Harry] really opened-up to [her]’.

After going back inside, she claims Harry made them all bacon sandwiches, play-fought with his friends and gave her a kiss before heading home. 

Catherine claims they met a few more times before the romance fizzled out and it wasn’t until 2009, a year after she married her second husband (from whom she is now separated) that the two bumped into each other again at a polo match.

She described him at the time as a ‘very brave, charismatic, incredibly funny, intelligent and lovely human being.’
