While some people blame everything on Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, not many know that there was an American girl in William’s life as well, coincidentally named Meghann.

The girl who broke William’s heart

Despite being a British Prince, dating was a struggle for young William. The royal, apparently, tried to woo one girl during his college years but all his attempts were fruitless.

The girl in question was a Texas heiress named Meghann Gunderman. According to a royal biographer Katie Nicholl, Will met Meghann when he was studying at the University of St. Andrews. Nicholl wrote:

One of the first girls he spotted was the Texan heiress Meghann Gunderman-known as Gundy. When William asked her out-something he did not do lightly-it came as somewhat of a shock when she declined his advances.

But a rejection didn’t stop young William, instead, it made him want Meghann more. However, the American beauty wouldn’t change her decision. One of the royal’s mates from the University commented:

I heard William ask her out on a date, but she wasn't interested at all and she turned him down. He kept saying, 'Why won't you go out with me?' She wasn't having it.

But it all turned out for the best as not dating his own American Meghan helped William to fall in love with his future wife, Kate Middleton.

Nonetheless, despite being in a similar situation, the future king was, reportedly, concerned about his brother’s romance with Meghan Markle.
