Meghan Markle was reportedly living with her boyfriend when she met Prince Harry, book claims

Meghan Markle was reportedly still living with then-boyfriend Cory Vitiello when she met Prince Harry on a blind date in 2016, according to a new royal biography.

British writer and investigative journalist Tom Bower claimed in his newly released book, Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsors, that Markle allegedly persuaded Violet von Westenholz to go on a blind date with her childhood friend, Prince Harry, reported in 2016 Page Six. The International Business Times has not been able to independently verify Bower’s claims.

Markle reportedly met von Westenholz after the then “Suits” star was hired to wear Ralph Lauren’s clothes during the Wimbledon tennis tournament in the summer of 2016, according to the book. At the time, von Westenholz was working as a publicist for the designer.

Markle reportedly asked von Westenholz to set her up with Prince Harry while chatting with her at Wimbledon, Bower claimed.

According to the book, von Westenholz sent Prince Harry photos of Markle before she agreed to help out on the blind date.

“Her issues were familiar to any obscure unmarried 30-something actor—fear of loneliness and personal and financial insecurity,” Bower wrote of Markle, according to Page Six. “Not surprisingly, Meghan has been preoccupied with her own financial security – and finding a husband.”

Von Westenholz’s father Piers is an interior designer and antiques dealer and a friend of Prince Charles’ wife Camilla. Prince Harry and his older brother Prince William played with von Westenholz as children on weekend visits to their family’s estate in Hertfordshire and during family holidays together.

Markle’s two-year romance with Vitiello went south when she met Prince Harry, but they still shared a home back then, Bower claimed.

The book claimed Prince Harry secretly flew to Toronto, Canada, two weeks after their first date on July 1, 2016, and stayed there for about a week at the home of Markle’s girlfriend, who Bower suspected might be Jessica Mulroney.

“With Cory still sharing [Meghan’s] At home, the situation for Meghan was difficult but manageable,” Bower claimed in his book.

“By the end of the week, having returned to London, Meghan was confident her spell had been cast and her relationship with Harry was sealed. She told Cory their affair was over,” the author claimed.

The Toronto-based chef was reportedly “relieved” about the breakup, according to the book, because he and Markle’s past few months together have been “awkward,” according to the book.

Bower was a reporter on BBC’s Panorama and an award-winning producer of over 200 television documentaries. He is known for his unauthorized biographies of royals and notable figures in business and media, including Robert Maxwell, Mohamed Al-Fayed, Conrad Black and Richard Branson.

Markle and Prince Harry previously discussed their first date during their first interview together in 2017.

“It was definitely a staging,” said Markle, who was then engaged to the Duke of Sussex, according to Harper’s Bazaar. “It was a blind date.”

The couple met for drinks but hit it off right away. “I think about it very quickly, we said, ‘Well, what do we do tomorrow? We should meet again,'” she added.

Prince Harry revealed they “met once, then twice, back to back – two dates in London earlier this year [July 2016].”

The couple confirmed that the person who introduced them was a mutual friend, but did not reveal their identities at the time to protect their privacy.

Markle and Prince Harry married in May 2018 and welcomed two children, Archie (3) and Lilibet (1). They settled in the former actress’ home state of California in 2020 after stepping down from their roles as working royals.
