It turns out Prince Harry’s rumoured new girlfriend may not have been single when the royal began courting her, according to new reports.
According to The Sun, Meghan had a boyfriend, Canadian chef Cory Vitiello, at the time she met Harry while he was promoting the Invictus Games.
Apparently the pair had been going through a rough patch, and the young “besotted” Prince repeatedly texted Meghan until she agreed to date him.
"Their relationship was on the rocks but it was complicated as they were still living together," a source told the publication.
An insider said the pair are definitely the “real deal."
“He definitely pursued her and besieged her with texts until she agreed to a date,” the friend said.
“He is very full-on but she was going through quite a tough time with her previous boyfriend and she was very flattered.
“He's head over heels and she feels the same.”

Meghan and Cory then reportedly broke up in May, the same month she met her handsome prince.
According to The Sun, the lovers went to London’s SoHo House back in July with a group of friends, and had a couple more solo dates after that.
Apparently Harry “swept her off her feet."
Further proof the cute couple's romance is heading in the right direction? A new report from People claims the actress has already met Harry's father, Prince Charles.
"Harry is pretty serious about her and she is pretty serious about him. It’s great. They have a lot in common and I’m sure they will get on very well," an insider told People.
Meanwhile Meghan has strongly hinted at her blossoming romance with the 32-year-old with a cryptic Instagram post.
Hours after news of her secret royal relationship broke, the Suits actress took to Instagram, posting a photo of two loved-up bananas spooning in a romantic cuddle.
“Sleep tight x,” she captioned the sweet image.
But the picture whipped fans into a frenzy of speculation.
“Good night Harry. Good night Meghan,” one follower wrote. “Is this your prince charming?” another chimed in.
