What Did Catherine Ommanney Say About Her And Prince Harry?

According to Catherine Ommanney, she had the "time of my life" in 2006, when she dated Prince Harry. Prince William's younger brother reportedly gave her the "most passionate kiss I've ever had."

"We had some mutual friends in the property business and he introduced himself," she said, recounting their meeting.

According to the Bravo personality, Prince Harry was wearing an Australian-style had that made her laugh. Prince Harry allegedly invited her to ride with him in his Range Rover.

"But when everyone started leaving at around 11pm, Harry pointed to one of three Range Rovers parked outside and said, 'Hop in with me,' which I found very flattering," she claimed.

She added that Prince Harry made her a bacon sandwich when she was starving, and they "shared a cigarette on the steps outside."

"He really opened up to me," she added.

"Harry and I went to the kitchen and he made a great bacon sandwich. We sat in the kitchen chatting for ages and we both had the giggles. We started play fighting and I think we were wrestling on and off for about 15 minutes when I told him I needed to go home."

"It was then that he lifted me by my waist off the floor and held me against the wall. He gave me the most incredible, passionate kiss I have ever had in my life. I was absolutely speechless."

According to Ommanney, they met again a week later at a bar in Kensington palace. They shared another kiss, and Prince Harry was "very complimentary."

They had two more dates before Prince Harry changed his number. They did not see until 2009 when they bumped at a polo match in Barbados. At the time, she was married to her second husband.

"Harry pushed past his bodyguards to give me a kiss and a hug and we had a great conversation. In hindsight it's a shame we couldn't have remained friends," she continued.

Ommanney added that she and Prince Harry shared the same sense of humor, and he would have been her "perfect man" if he were 10 years older and not a royal.
