Who is Sarah Ann Macklin? Prince Harry had affair with model while dating Meghan Markle, book claims
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Prince Harry reportedly had an affair with model Sarah Ann Macklin while dating his current wife, Meghan Markle. Angela Levin, who wrote 'Harry: A Biography of a Prince', revealed that Harry and Macklin began talking after meeting at a private party.
The short-lived romance took place just after Harry met Meghan, whom he married four years ago in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, on 19 May 2018. Levin has written in her book, "During the very early stages of his relationship with Meghan, Harry was thought to have gone on dates with Burberry model Sarah Ann Macklin."
The author said, "They met at a private party, he took her number and bombarded her with texts. But it turned out to be just a fling. A friend said: 'They go on but are quite different. She is very clean-living and barely drinks, and in that respect they were on a different wavelength. Harry was a bit noncommittal.'"
Macklin pursues a career as a model and a nutritionist. She is also an influencer, and frequently shares tips for a healthy lifestyle on social media.
Meanwhile, Levin added, "There has been some confusion too about whether or not Meghan had at the time broken up with her boyfriend of two years, celebrity chef Cory Vitiello." However, despite having bumps in their relationship, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stronger than ever, with Meghan admitting recently that Harry saved her by finding her a therapist.
Bringing mental health into focus through her recent ‘Archetypes’ podcast, Meghan shared one incident when her husband "saved her life." The Duchess of Sussex told her listeners on Tuesday, October 11, that she was at her worst state, “At my worst point … my husband had found a referral for me to call. And I called this woman.”
The ‘Suit’ star pointed out, “I think it’s [important] for all of us to be really honest about what it is that you need and to not be afraid to make peace with that, to ask for it."
Meghan shared the time her husband had come across people who couldn’t address their mental health issues and it was simply "ignored." “My husband works a lot with the military community as a veteran, and [he often hears about] invisible injuries,” Markle shared. “If you suffer from post-traumatic stress, it’s the thing that you can’t see. And if you can’t see it, it is just … brushed under the carpet.”
