Prince Harry once had the hots for an actress before he met Meghan Markle.

Several years ago, the Duke of Sussex became attracted to Jennifer Aniston after seeing her on the cover of GQ magazine. U.S. author Ian Halperin revealed that Prince Harry managed to get the actress’ number from their common friends.

Harry was infatuated with Jen for years… He told friends she was ‘princess material.’ He told a close friend his favorite actress was Jen and got her number… He texted her and sent her emojis,” the author said.

However, Aniston knew that she and Prince Harry had a 16-year age gap between them so she decided not to get into anything deeper with the royal. Halperin said that the “Friends” star also didn’t want to lead Prince Harry on.

But a source close to Aniston said that Halperin’s claims are false. However, the US author said that he’s standing by everything that he wrote in his book.

Prince Harry has had a slew of girlfriends before he was introduced to Markle by their common friend. At that time, Markle has been frequenting London. After their first meeting, the two hit it off quickly and Prince Harry immediately asked Markle out on a date.

After dating for over a year, the couple announced that they have gotten engaged. Months later, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

The royal couple recently welcomed their firstborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6. And on Sunday, Prince Harry celebrated his first Father’s Day by releasing an adorable photo of his son.

But royal fans couldn’t help but notice how Prince Harry and Markle opted to not reveal their firstborn’s hair color. After his birth, the royal couple introduced their son to the entire world while his head was covered in a bonnet.

Royal fans are convinced that Archie Harrison could be ginger just like Prince Harry.
