Sarah Ann Macklin is a fashion-model-turned-nutritionist who it is said Prince Harry dated briefly after he had been set up with Suits star Meghan Markle.

She worked for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and Ralph Lauren, among the man fashion credits in her arsenal.

After 12 years as a model she turned to diet and nutrition.

On her website she states: “I felt it was my calling to change the unhealthy eating habits that I saw were so prevalent in the world of modelling.

“You have so many young women under a great amount of pressure to look a certain way and perform at a certain level, and the majority of them had no idea that what they were eating played a huge role in their success or failure.”

She has 20.4k followers on Instagram, where she posts images of herself, her food and her travels.

Prince Harry and Sarah Ann Macklin had a “fling” according to a royal author. 

Royal biographer Angela Levin said the pair met at a private party in her book, Harry: Conversations with the Prince.

She said: “During the very early staged of his relationship with Meghan, Harry was thought to have gone on dates with Burberry model Sarah Ann Jacklin.

“They met at a private party, he took her number and bombarded her with texts.

“But it turned out to be just a fling.

“A friend said: ‘They got on but are quite different. She is very clean-living and barely drinks, and in that respect they were on a different wavelength. Harry was a bit noncommittal.’”

Meghan and Harry were set up on a blind by a friend, they revealed on their engagement.

Meghan Markle will appear in Vogue this autumn, it has been reported. 

The Duchess of Sussex is reported to be guest editing the September Issue of British Vogue, appearing in and writing for the magazine’s most important annual issue.

The Duchess’s involvement is highly likely to be compared to Kate Middleton’s unprecedented appearance on the cover of the magazine.

She recently gave birth to her first child Archie Harrison, but according to rumours Meghan is not about to slow down any time soon.

A source told US Weekly that Meghan will edit the magazine alongside Edward Enninful.
