Meghan almost dated soccer star Ashley Cole before Prince Harry

Meghan Markle always wanted herself an English boyfriend.

In a recent interview with Grazia, Meghan's friend, English radio personality Lizzie Cundy, revealed that she tried to set Meghan up with UK soccer star Ashley Cole, back in 2013.

“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,” Cundy, 53, told Grazia.

“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.”

Cundy, however, is glad that things did not work out between the two otherwise Meghan wouldn't have met Harry at a party in 2013.

“She was a real girl’s girl: full of energy,” Cundy said. “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.”
