Lizzie, 49, explained that she had been in the process of arranging a date between the future Duchess and Cheryl Tweedy’s ex after Meghan asked her for help.

She told This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that she was told to sit next to Meghan at a dinner years before she met Harry.

Lizzie explained: “She wanted to find a boyfriend. She said: ‘I want a British boyfriend.’ I said: ‘What, a celebrity?’ and she went: ‘Yeah, why not?’”

She claims she then asked her “Do you like footballers?” and handed Meghan her phone to scroll through, saying: “Do you want to have a look through?”

She added: “Ashley Cole had just split up from Cheryl and they looked quite similar. They were dark, petite.

“I said: ‘He might like you?’ I was getting that together. I made a call to Ashley and he said: ‘Who is she?’”

Lizzie explained that officials sat her next to Meghan at a fancy ceremony because she didn’t know anyone.

She said: “I was at a big dinner a few years before Harry. They said: ‘Lizzie will you sit next to this girl? She doesn’t know anyone in London.’

“She’d flown in from Vancouver and I said fine, I’d look after her and in fact we got on like a house on fire. She was so funny, she loved London.”

However, it seemed Meghan managed to find her perfect man – without Lizzie’s help – in the end.
