• Princess Anne was, reportedly, sighted getting cozy with Giovanni Malagò
  • The Princess Royal and sports manager were said to be having a 'deep conversation' while watching a game in Rome last month
  • Princess Anne, however, is still married to Sir Timothy Laurence

Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips appeared perfect for each other when they tied the knot in 1973, just a year after they first met at the Munich Olympics. However, things started to go south after the arrival of Zara Phillips as they, allegedly, began to live separately at the time. Prince Charles, who is Princess Anne’s older brother, called Captain Mark a “thick and wet” person.

When her divorce from her ex-husband was finalized in 1992, Princess Anne was linked to Naval Officer Timothy Laurence. The pair, then, exchanged wedding vows in a small church in Scotland after a few months of dating. While the mom-of-two and her current partner appear to be getting stronger by the day, recent reports suggested that Princess Anne, now, has a new man in her life.

Woman’s Day New Zealand reported that the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth got cozy with Giovanni Malagò last month. Princess Anne and the Italian businessman-sports manager were spotted having a “deep conversation” with each other during the Six Nations Rugby Championship, on Feb. 22, at the Stadio Olympico in Rome.

“They definitely got people talking after their cozy display,” a witness, reportedly, told the entertainment news outlet. “They were surrounded by people but only had eyes for each other,” it went on. Because of this, some royal followers could not help but speculate that the two could be an item.

To recall, the marriage of Princess Anne and Timothy Laurence was hounded with numerous issues and controversies, with some wondering if they are still a couple. However, Showbiz Cheat Sheet has made it clear that the second child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg, is still happily married with Timothy. The publication even shared that the couple is, currently, living at Gatcombe Park, which was Her Majesty’s wedding gift to her daughter and Captain Mark Phillips. At times, the pair, also, stays at their apartment at St. James’s Castle in London.

Princess Anne and Giovanni Malagò have yet to comment on these malicious romance rumors. However, with Woman’s Day’s history of creating reports based on the claims of its phony and unreliable sources, this could likely be another fabricated story waiting to be debunked. Hence, avid followers of The Princess Royal should take these unverified claims lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
