It’s a relationship that many royal fans have been dreaming about ever since Pippa Middleton was her sister Kate Middleton’s maid of honor and Prince Harry was the best man to his brother Prince William four years ago.
And they’re going to have to wait even longer too because despite rumors to the contrary, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton have not secretly been dating for three months.
OK! Magazine, via the Daily Mail, have reported that according to their sources, 31-year-old Prince Harry and 32-year-old Pippa Middleton originally locked lips all the way back at the royal wedding between the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge. In fact, the website asserted that Kate Middleton caught her sister and new brother-in-law “snogging in a bathroom” at the soiree.
The source explained, “At one point, Kate went to check her make-up and found them snogging in a bathroom.”
According to the publication, the pair had always had a monumental amount of “sexual tension” between them. Over the last few months, both Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton have found themselves single, which is what provoked the duo to actually do something about it.
The source continued, “There’s always been sexual tension between them, even when they were dating other people.”
The celebrity magazine’s insider then added that Prince Harry set about seducing Pippa Middleton with music from Adele, Ellie Goulding, and Bruno Mars, a pasta carbonara that he cooked himself, and a candle-lit setting. This first date is believed to have lasted until around 3 a.m.
Since their relationship began, the pair are believed to have spent the night together several times. On one of these occasions Prince William allegedly let himself into Prince Harry’s apartment and found the duo together.
The insider also alleged that Kate Middleton wasn’t too taken with the fact that Prince Harry and her younger sister were originally caught locking lips. But that didn’t stop Prince Harry from reportedly pursuing Pippa Middleton, even though Pippa repeatedly turned down his pursuits for fear of annoying her older sister.
Eventually, Prince Harry decided to stop in his efforts to finally land Pippa Middleton, and they eventually both went on to date other people. Pippa dated Nico Jackson for three years, and Harry dated Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy on and off for an extended period.
However, by October of this year, both Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton found themselves to be single, which is what allegedly provoked their attempts to actually start a romance, with Pippa reportedly being the one to try and begin it.
The source insisted that it has been very easy for Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton to keep their relationship secret, with the source explaining, “It’s very easy for her to sneak in and out of the palace. Harry just sends one of his bodyguards to pick her up, and then she ducks down in the backseat so the paparazzi don’t spot her.”
And while royal family fans were probably excited about this news, it was quickly dismissed. Not only did the Daily Mail cite several similar stories regarding potential romances started by OK! that proved to be false, but Gossip Cop have also confirmed that, according to their insider from the Palace, there is absolutely no truth in the story.
But is Prince Harry on Tinder? Rumors started after comedian Jack Whitehall made a quip about the fifth in line possibly being on the dating website while hosting the Royal Variety Performance, which was immediately picked up by a number of publications and soon started trending on Twitter.
