A rumoured former love interest of Prince Andrew has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship won't last.

Lady Victoria Hervey, 44, who once went on a date with the Duke of York, believes that the courtship between the pair was "way too short" and it is doomed to fail.

It is not the first time Lady Victoria has made a bold prediction on Harry and Meghan's relationship after speculating the couple would eventually move to America at the behest of the Duchess.

Harry and Meghan decided to step back from royal life in 2018 and after a short stint in Canada the pair set up their home in California with son Archie.

Lady Victoria told Closer magazine : "I think Harry and Meghan's courtship was way too short. I just don't see it lasting.

"I remember just before their wedding, I thought, "They'll get married, have a few kids... And she will end up wanting to be in America"."

It has often been rumoured that Prince William told his brother to take things slowly with Meghan and not rush into anything.
