MEGHAN Markle once spent the night scrolling through Lizzie Cundy’s phone looking for footballers to date – and struck upon Ashley Cole.
However, original WAG Lizzie claimed that when she tried to set former England defender Ashley up with the future Duchess, he replied: “Who is she?”
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.
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.
