An old friend of Meghan Markle’s – British TV personality Lizzie Cundy, 53 – reveals that back in 2013 she attempted to set Meghan up with soccer star Ashley Cole, 40.
According to Lizzie, Ashley wasn’t interested! In an interview with Grazia Daily, Lizzie revealed: “Meghan said she loved London, and would love an English boyfriend, so I went through my phone to see who I knew that might be a good fit. I tried to find her a boyfriend – Ashley Cole wasn’t so keen – but I did try to fix her up, which is funny looking back.”
Cole is apparently very big in the UK soccer world – he’s played for big-name clubs including Arsenal and Chelsea, before retiring and becoming a commentator and coach…Sucks for Ashley, because Meghan then soon got on with Prince Harry! Cundy revealed exactly what she thinks could have made Harry fall in love with Meghan, adding: “She was a real girl’s girl: full of energy. She didn’t stop talking, and we had a big giggle. There was just something special about her. We just got on, and immediately swapped numbers. I looked at her and thought ‘you have something special.’ She makes you feel at home straight away and it felt like I’d known her all my life. I can see why Harry fell in love with her…” Read Lizzie’s full interview with Grazia here and let us know what you think.
