Blast from the past! Meghan Markle dated porn star Simon Rex before Prince Harry

She also followed dating guidance written in a love bible titled The Rules.

While we all know who Prince Harry's ex-girlfriends are (Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, duh!) Meghan Markle's love-life past is a little more murky. Though, one thing we do know: she smooched a lot of frogs before finally meeting her Prince. The royal-to-be had relationships with Canadian chef, Cory Vitiello; Irish pro golfer, Rory McIlroy; and American film producer, Trevor Engelson. But an unlikely more blast from Meghan's past has surfaced, porn star Simon Rex, who the former actress is said to have dated in 2004.
According to The Sun, Meghan took her search for Mr Right very seriously. Not only did she date regularly, the royal-to-be allegedly swore by dating guidance written in a love bible titled The Rules.

According to a source, Meghan could recite passages from dating bible The Rules, off by heart.
The book, aimed at women who want "marriage in the shortest time possible", is a self-help guide telling them to be "easy to be with but hard to get" if you want to score The One.

Sources claim the 36-year-old, who will wed Prince Harry on May 19, studied the book thoroughly and was even able to recite entire passages off by heart.
"Meghan used to quote The Rules all the time and really put it into practise with a number of her boyfriends," the source revealed.
"She was never without a boyfriend for more than two or three months and always striving to have someone by her side."
The book, written by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, and first published in 1995, lists 35 'dating' rules, including: "No More than Casual Kissing on the First Date", "Don't Rush into Sex", and "Don't Talk to a Man First (and Don't Ask Him to Dance)."
It's been rumoured that Meghan Markle had a fleeting thing with Irish pro golfer, Rory McIlroy in 2014.
According to the tabloid paper, one of the men the former actress tested out the book's guidance on was Scary Movie actor, Simon Rex.
Sources say Meghan and Simon had their date in Los Angeles after meeting on the set of short-lived US sitcom Cuts when they both guest-starred in the same episode.

Meghan and Simon went on a date in 2004. Long before meeting Meghan, Simon, now 43, had made several porn films.
"I went there and did that sh*t. It was just enough to pay the rent at the time. I was living in the moment. In hindsight it wasn't the best move," he previously admitted.
Simon is now a comedian and rapper, using the rap name Dirt Nasty.
It's not known if Meghan knew of Simon's porn star past. What is known, is this month Meghan will marry her true love, Prince Harry at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
