Whoops! Prince Harry Almost Ran Into Not One, but Two Ex-Girlfriends

Just because Prince Harry is a married man doesn’t mean his past is gone for good. In fact, the 34-year-old duke almost ran into not one, but two of his ex-girlfriends during a royal outing.

It all started last week when the prince attended the global premiere for Netflix’s Our Planet at the Natural History Museum in London, as Cosmopolitan points out.

A slew of celebs showed up, including Prince William, Prince Charles and two of Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends: Camilla Thurlow and singer Ellie Goulding. (Thurlow dated the royal back in 2014, while Goulding had a brief fling with the prince in 2016—they were spotted kissing at the Audi Polo Challenge.)

According to The Sun, this proved to be a problem for the event organizers, considering they accidentally placed Prince Harry next to Thurlow. Nevertheless, the crisis was averted when they corrected the seating plan and sat Prince Charles next to his son.

The event marked a rare appearance for the royal family, considering the last time Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles had a joint appearance was back in 2017. Although they regularly congregate for large family gatherings, they rarely step out as a threesome.

Luckily, Prince Harry didn’t have any awkward encounters with Goulding at the premiere, but we can only imagine what Meghan Markle has to say about this.
