Caroline Flack about Prince Harry: ‘We did have a friendship’

Flack, who dated One Direction’s Harry Styles in 2011, wrote in her new book Storm In a C Cup that she and the royal met through a mutual friend back in 2009.

“I knew she was friends with Prince Harry, and I’d never met him, so I thought, ‘Oh, that’s quite exciting,’ and for a moment I perked up,” the X Factor U.K. host writes, via The Sun. “So I was just sitting there and he arrived with a few others in tow and we all spent the evening chatting and laughing.”

The presenter, 35, talked about the status of relationship with the Prince, 31, at the time.

“I was photographed with him and we did have a friendship,” she wrote.

And she also unveiled that when the “story” came to light, they “had to stop seeing each other.”

Prince Harry celebrated his 31st birthday in September, with a group of friends, including his ex-girlfriend, Cressida Bonas.

Also, the royal bachelor reportedly met former girlfriend Chelsy Davy in August, during his three-month conservation projects in Africa.

In June, reports about another rumored romance came out, as the Prince was photographed in the company of Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman at a Polo party after the Audi Polo Challenge on May 31 in London.
