Apparently Prince Harry has a thing for actresses who play characters named “Rachel”. Meghan Markle is famous for her role as Rachel Zane on “Suits”, but she’s not the first Rachel to steal Harry’s heart. Back in the 90s, he wanted to make Jennifer Aniston (aka Rachel Green) his princess. Yup.
A new book and documentary on the Hollywood actress reveals the Duke of Sussex used to send Jen Aniston emojis. Wasn’t that a ‘Friends’ episode? “The One Where A Handsome Prince Sends Rachel An Eggplant”?
The author, Ian Halperin, says Harry fell for Jen when she famously posed nude(ish) for that GQ cover back in January 2009 wearing only a tie.
Halperin says the two never dated, but that “Harry was infatuated with Jen for years. He told friends she was ‘princess material’. He visited LA and was partying heavily with models there.
“He told a close friend his favorite actress was Jen and got her number. He texted her and sent emojis. One source told me Jen was aware of Harry’s crush but didn’t want to lead him on because of the age difference.”
A spokesman for Aniston, who is 16 years older than Harry, says the claims are false, but Halperin is sticking to his story, saying that he got his facts straight from the actress’s friends, co-workers and staff. “I stand by everything in the film and book,” he says.
