Prince Harry's model ex-girlfriend Florence St George has revealed her 'luck' at their relationship ending early.

Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend, model Florence St George has admitted she feels "lucky" that her relationship with Prince Harry was short-lived because she struggled with the publicity surrounding the Duke.

Florence, 35, briefly dated Prince Harry in 2011 and she has recently opened up on their relationship and it comes after his other ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy confessed dating the Prince was 'scary and uncomfortable' (opens in new tab).

Speaking to the latest issue of The Telegraph's Stella magazine, Florence said that dating Prince Harry brought a wave of security from the media and the public, but struggled when her "privacy ended abruptly".

She admitted, "A new story would appear almost every day in the press, my school friends were interrogated and there were photographers outside my front door."

Florence, whose maiden name is Florence Brudenell-Bruce, was aged 25 at the time they dated and she continued to explain, "I take my hat off to those people who can cope with that lifestyle, but I knew I couldn’t. Although it was sad at the time, I feel lucky that the relationship was short-lived."

The lingerie model, who has been married to Henry St George, the vice-president of the Grand Bahama Port Authority, since 2013, did not reveal why she and the Duke split.

Prince Harry married former Suits actress Meghan Markle (opens in new tab) in 2018 with whom he has son Archie (opens in new tab), two, and daughter, Lilibet Diana (opens in new tab), and set up a new life for his family in LA (opens in new tab).
