According to a royal expert, “Real Housewives of D.C.” star Catherine Ommanney was allegedly trying to get her five minutes of fame when she opened up about her alleged fling with Prince Harry.
Russell Myers, a royal editor at the Daily Mirror, appeared on “Today” and was asked about the “Real Housewives of D.C.” star’s claim about a past fling between her and Prince Harry. According to the reality star, they kissed after learning that he was writing about his ex-girlfriend in his memoir, “Spare.” She was skeptical that Meghan Markle’s husband would mention her in his book, so she decided to discuss their relationship.
“I’m not a big fan of the ‘Real Housewives’ because nobody had ever heard of her, and it seems as though she’s trying to get her you know five minutes of fame. And probably it wasn’t seen very much on the ‘Real Housewives,’ but apparently she did have a bit of a fling with Harry, I mean back all the way back in 2006, they shared a kiss.”
“She isn’t in the new book, apparently, this is why she’s so aggrieved. So, I mean it seems a bit nonsensical to me.”
Myers’ claims could not be independently verified by International Business Times.
In an interview with The Sun, Ommanney discussed her alleged romance with Prince Harry. They allegedly started dating when she was 34, and he was 21. She also said Prince Harry gave her the “most passionate kiss I’ve ever had.”
She divorced her ex-husband, Stephen, when she met Harry in May 2006 at the trendy Art Bar in London’s Chelsea. Three Royal Protection Officers reportedly accompanied Prince Harry and hovered constantly. She also revealed how Prince Harry received a reprimand from one of his bodyguards.
“I started chatting to somebody, and Harry took the cloth out of the champagne bucket and put it over my head. I was a bit upset because it was freezing. I told him, ‘Stop being so needy, that is not the way to behave.'”
“One of his security guards came over and told him off, saying, ‘Get a grip, you can’t behave like that.'”
She claims to have witnessed Prince Harry being scolded in this manner “a few times.” She claimed she had the “time of my life” with the prince in 2006, whom she affectionately dubbed “baby” due to his habit of sucking on lollipops.
At the time, Prince Harry was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Chelsy Davy. Ommanney, on the other hand, was unsure whether Prince Harry was taking a break from Davy during their brief romance. She, for one, wasn’t serious about their romance.
“He was only 21, so a relationship was the furthest thing from my mind.”
