Natalie Pinkham had her 5 minutes of glory when British tabloid The Sun published a picture of her and Prince Harry on a night out in a club. It wasn’t a very serious relationship, but they used to date for a while.

3. Caroline Flack
Caroline Flack is another TV presenter that Harry used to date. He really does have a taste for women on TV, doesn’t he? Anyway, Caroline and Harry dated after he and Chelsy broke up. Carolie was used to media attention and wasn’t exactly fazed by famous people, after all, she used to date Harry Styles from One Direction.

5. Florence Brudenell-Bruce
Florence became Harry’s first serious girlfriend after his breakup with Chelsy. And while this definitely wasn’t a fling, they only dated for one summer and eventually broke up.

She forgave the prince because she wasn’t a stranger to wild parties either But in the end they broke up because Cressida wasn’t ready to give up her acting career and party lifestyle for the strict royal protocol of behavior.
7. Emma Watson
Like most men, Prince Harry also fell for the charming Emma Watson. He invited her to a party to test the waters after he heard about her breakup with the rugby player Matthew Janney.
