Since their romance became public, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been under the microscope of the media. And following the couple’s decision in early 2020 to step back from their duties as high-ranking members of the royal family, it appears that scrutiny has grown exponentially. The Duchess of Sussex herself has spoken candidly about the pressure of that attention. But now that Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Florence St. George has confirmed the true media fear she had during her relationship with the Duke of Sussex, it seems that no matter who Harry dated, the prying eyes of the tabloid media were always going to be. a challenge. .
Some longtime royal family fans may recall that Harry and St. George (formerly Brudenell-Bruce) dated for a few months in 2011. While the former couple were able to keep their relationship a secret for a while (apparently they only managed to get half attention for a few days), the fervor of tabloid coverage was no less discouraging. “Although it was sad at the time, I feel fortunate that the relationship was short-lived,” St. George explained to The Times.

“When I glimpsed for five, six, seven days, we were together a little bit longer than that, but that’s how long it was in the press, what it was like to be under that focus, I found it really scary and made a decision pretty quickly that no it was the right thing to do for me, ”he explained. St. George, a former model who is now married with children, made it very clear that the kind of attention she received was definitely more intense than what the public could suppose for her or any of Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends.
But for Meghan, a former actress who was used to public appearances, red carpets, etc., she may have had a bit more experience than some of Harry’s old flames. Of course, the life of the first Suits Star was definitely no match for the rabid British tabloid press that continues to scrutinize her every move. To that end, St. George paid Meghan a huge compliment: “My hat is off to people who can cope with that lifestyle, but I knew I couldn’t.”
