Victoria star Jenna Coleman is covering Harper’s Bazaar UK this month, and a) she looks gorg-e-ous, and b) her shoot took place at none other than Kensington Palace. Which, ahem, happens to be the home of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Which, double ahem, is ever-so-slightly-awk due to reports that Jenna Coleman used to date Harry.
According to Vanity Fair, Harry was pursuing Jenna around 2015 (at the same time as her now-boyfriend Tom Hughes). “She had texts and date requests coming in from both of them. She ended up going for Tom over Harry,” a friend said. “I guess she knew she had more in common with a fellow actor. Tom was really into Jenna and they hit it off.”
Kensington Palace is massive so the chances of Harry running into Jenna on this shoot are pretty slim—but apparently their last run-in during breakfast at Soho House in October was all kinds of tense.
“Harry had to walk straight past Jenna to get to his and Meghan’s table,” a source told Vanity Fair. “It was pretty awkward and some of the other guests were commenting on it. Jenna looked down while Harry looked straight ahead, while Meghan didn’t seem to notice. She sat through breakfast with a smile on her face, but Harry looked a bit uncomfortable. He’d been super friendly saying hi to everyone, but he didn’t even acknowledge Jenna.”
