Meghan Markle reportedly “exchanged messages” with X Factor star Matt Cardle prior to her relationship with Prince Harry.
The former actress is said to have told the X Factor winner that she was a “big fan” after he followed her online in 2015.
The Sun claims the pair struck up a “previously unknown online relationship”, but never ended up meeting as Matt then found his now-girlfriend Amber Hernaman.
A source told the publication: “ Matt followed Meghan initially in early 2015 because he thought she was a beautiful star from Suits.
“But he was stunned when she followed him immediately back and started messaging him. She said she was a big fan of his work.
“Matt couldn’t believe a Hollywood star like Meghan would even know who he was so he was very flattered and they chatted a little bit online before she suggested meeting up.
“But then he met his girlfriend and knew it wasn’t appropriate to keep talking to Meghan so he ended up ghosting her.
“It felt like there could have been a connection but the timing was wrong. He didn’t reply to her last message.”
The Sun reports that Meghan was looking for love again following her divorce from husband Trevor Engelson in 2013.
An insider added: “Matt did exchange messages with Meghan before his relationship with Amber got serious.
“Meghan said she was a fan of Matt having watched him on The X Factor.
“She eventually suggested meeting up when she was next in London. Matt cut contact once he and Amber became official and never replied to the last message.”
