Before Meghan Markle met Prince Harry, the Duchess is said to have told showbiz editor Katie Hind that footballer Ashley Cole pursued her. Back in 2013, the player followed her on Twitter and “tried very hard” to get her attention.

This was years before she and the Duke of Sussex met on a blind date. The former Suits actress who met with Katie in London said:

He follows me and he keeps trying to talk to me on Twitter. He's trying really hard. He wants to go out on a date while I'm over here in London. What do you think? Do you know him?

However, the footballer’s brother, Matty Cole denied the Duchess’ claim. He said his brother never pursued the Duchess of Sussex before she met her husband.

According to The Sun, Matty said:

It’s nonsense, completely made up. He definitely wouldn’t have to beg Meghan Markle for a date. She’s not the kind of girl he goes for anyway, and he’s never fancied her.

It was earlier reported that showbusiness journalist Katie Hind claimed the former actress’ UK publicist begged her to get the Duchess in the tabloids for exposure. Hind said the team wanted Meghan as an actress to make a big name in Britain
