When reality meets royalty.
Former “Real Housewives of D.C” star Catherine Ommanney claims that she had a passionate fling with Prince Harry when he was 21 & she was 34.
“I doubt I will be in Harry’s book, as a prince can’t run off with a 34-year-old mother of two,” the 50-year-old explained. “It’s just not the done thing.”
Ommanney — who was separated from her ex-husb&, Stephen, at the time — said that the two met at the Art Bar in London through mutual friends in May 2006.
“Harry was wearing an Australian-style hat that made me laugh, so I asked him, ‘What are you doing looking like a t–t in that?’” she recalled. “I don’t think he was used to people taking the mickey, & once we started talking, it was like there was no one else was in the room.”
After leaving the bar, Ommanney claimed that the couple then went to a friend’s house where Harry made her a bacon s&wich.
“We started play fighting & I think we were wrestling on & off for about 15 minutes when I told him I needed to go home,” she continued about the alleged encounter. “It was then that he lifted me by my waist off the floor & held me against the wall. He gave me the most incredible, passionate kiss I have ever had in my life.”
At the time, Harry was in an on-again, off-again relationship with Chelsey Davy. The two dated for seven years, from 2004 until finally calling it quits in 2011.
Ommanney said that they went on a few dates but the fledgling romance stopped once it made headlines. They didn’t see each other again until a chance encounter at a 2009 polo match in Barbados.
“Without being arrogant, I think we both quite fancied each other even though he was way too young for me,” she said, adding that she nicknamed him “Baby” because he was fond of lollipops. “If he wasn’t a royal & was maybe 10 years older, he would be my perfect man.”
The former Housewife married photojournalist Charles Ommanney in 2008 but they called it quits two years later.
Harry is set to be in New York next week, along with his wife, Meghan Markle, as they accept an award at this year’s Ripple of Hope Gala.
