It is no secret that before he decided to settle down with American actress Meghan Markle, Prince Harry lived a wild life that included strip poker in a Las Vegas hotel room. But, now that he is tying the knot with Markle, Harry has transformed into a mature well-loved royal, and he has officially moved on from his crazy days with multiple ex-girlfriends by shutting down his private Facebook account that featured photos from his pre-Markle life.
Harry decided to delete his account that had pictures of him with his former girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, because of his fear of more bad press. To avoid the eyes of royals and royalists, Henry had a secret identity online for his close friends, and his name was Spike Wells.
Despite taking down the private profile and moving on with his life, Harry has remained friends with two of his exes, Davy and Cressida Bonas, and reports have surfaced that he and Markle have invited both women to their wedding.
Harry dated Davy on-and-off for seven years before they officially split in 2011. A year later, he hooked up with Bonas – thanks to his cousin Princess Eugenie – and they dated for two years before going their separate ways.
But even though two of Harry’s exes have made the guest list, Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson won’t be so lucky. But, he is taking the opportunity to cash in on his eight-year relationship with the future princess by creating a television show about an American divorcee who marries into the British royal family.
Markle and Engelson were married for two years before divorcing over “irreconcilable differences.”
The former Suits actress is set to marry Harry in less than three months, and the couple recently took time out from the wedding planning to attend the musical Hamilton in London’s West End.
The show tells the story of Alexander Hamilton and America’s founding fathers, and it also makes fun of Harry’s ancestor King George III.
Harry and Markle’s appearance in the sold-out crowd thrilled the cast, especially since it was their first trip to the theater since announcing their engagement in November.
Tonight, Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle were honoured to meet wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have overcome adversity and taken on remarkable sport and adventure challenges, at the annual #EndeavourAwards The Endeavour Fund gives these people the opportunity to rediscover their self-belief and fighting spirit through physical challenges, and is led by the Royal Foundation. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees for their incredible feats.
The London performance of Hamilton took place at The Victoria Palace Theatre, just two miles from the couple’s home at Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace.
Cast member Leslie Garcia Bowman tweeted that the couple did attend the popular show, saying it was an honor to have them there.
The theater visit capped off a week of public appearances for the couple, which included a joint visit in Edinburgh, and Harry’s surprise appearance on Valentine’s Day with father, Prince Charles, for a meeting about the environment.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry on May 19th at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
