Meghan Markle Slid Into Matt Cardle’s DMs Just Before She Met Harry

Things could have been very different for the Duchess of Sussex

It’s been nothing short of a whirlwind romance for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In just two years they got together, got engaged, got married and welcomed baby Archie. And with so much focus on the royal couple it’s hard to remember a time when the two weren’t together.

So when details of an almost relationship between Meghan and X Factor’s Matt Cardle emerged, we did a bit of a double take.

Apparently, Meghan slid into Matt’s DMs on Twitter in 2015 because she was impressed by the X factor winner’s talent.

“Matt followed Meghan initially in early 2015 because he thought she was a beautiful star from Suits,” a source reportedly told The Sun.

“But he was stunned when she followed him immediately back and started messaging him. She said she was a big fan of his work.”

The pair chatted on twitter for a little while before the former Suits actress allegedly asked to meet up.

“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,” the source said.

However, Matt had just started seeing Amber Hernaman at the time, who he is still with now, and so he never replied to poor Meghan.

“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.”

Things could have been very different for the Duchess of Sussex!
