Former Real Housewife Claims She Had A Fling With Prince Harry

Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchise features some of the most popular reality TV shows hitting the airwaves. One of the most successful of the series is "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," which created stars out of women like Marlo Hampton, Kenya Moore, NeNe Leakes, and even Grammy-award-winning R&B singer and songwriter, Kandi Burruss. 

There are also shows set in Salt Lake City, New York, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Miami, and Dubai, to name a few, which have had their own successes from season to season. Even with all the success of these shows, Season 12 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" still reigns as queen of the highest ratings due in part to "Teresa Giudice's incredible quotes and the drama she brings to the table," per Screen Rant.  

However, not all of them have been as lucrative. "The Real Housewives of D.C." was canceled after only one season and has a rating of one star on IMDb. A star from the show suggests she has another claim to fame though — she once dated Prince Harry. 

This Real Housewives star claims to have had a brief encounter with the prince

While her run on the reality show may not have been successful, "The Real Housewives of D.C." star Catherine Ommanney found herself involved with an extremely successful member of England's royal family.

According to The Sun, Ommanney recently revealed that she had a brief fling with a 21-year-old Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. "We had some mutual friends in the property business and he introduced himself," she told the publication. "Harry was wearing an Australian-style hat that made me laugh, so I asked him, 'What are you doing looking like a twat in that?' I don't think he was used to people taking the mickey, and once we started talking, it was like there was no one else in the room."

She continued, "We started play fighting and I think we were wrestling on and off for about 15 minutes when I told him I needed to go home," adding, "It was then that he lifted me by my waist off the floor and held me against the wall. He gave me the most incredible, passionate kiss I have ever had in my life."

She wrapped up the story by stating, "Without being arrogant, I think we both quite fancied each other even though he was way too young for me."

The Duke of Sussex recently described Meghan Markle as his 'soulmate'

The veracity of Catherine Ommanney's claims aside, it's highly unlikely she'd be getting a look in nowadays regardless. Prince Harry is so devoted to his wife, Meghan Markle, that he infamously left the royal family to protect her. As Marie Claire reported at the time, during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's groundbreaking interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry admitted that he was forced to leave the UK and give up his royal status because otherwise the prince feared his wife would fall victim to the same fate as the late Princess Diana.

Harry certainly doesn't regret the decision either, gushing during his July 2022 speech at the United Nations that Africa remains a special place for him because it's "where I knew I had found a soulmate in my wife" (via People). Meghan returned the favor at the One Young World opening ceremony just a few months later. According to The Irish Sun, the former "Suits" star shared: "I'm thrilled that my husband is able to join me this time to see first hand my respect for this organization." Evidently, these two only have eyes for each other. 

Although Harry's alleged tryst with a Real Housewife happened long before he met Meghan, his older brother wasn't so lucky. Rumors continue to swirl that Prince William had an affair with Rose Hanbury, his own wife's one-time best friend, while they were married, leading to a less-than-wholesome trending hashtag.
