The Real Housewives of D.C.: Catherine Ommanney’s Former Nanny Dishes on the Housewife’s Tryst with Prince Harry

While the world is still abuzz over the news of Prince William’s recent engagement to Kate Middleton, now, new details are emerging about his brother’s romantic rendezvous with Catherine Ommanney of Bravo’s Real Housewives of D.C.
Before she was a member of the cast of The Real Housewives of D.C., Catherine Ommanney (aka Cat) was more widely known as the woman who made out with Prince Harry. But now, in an interview, Cat’s former nanny reveals that her kiss with the prince wasn’t a one time thing.
“Although she was my boss, when she was really happy she would share things with me, like what happened with Prince Harry,” Monica Herrero told RadarOnline.com.
“She would show me messages that he sent her, and she said that he wanted to take her hand and travel around the world.”
Herrero was 20-years-old in 2007 when she worked as a nanny for Ommanney and her two daughters in London.
“While I was living with Catherine [Ommanney] a car with a chauffer came for her twice,” said Herrero. “Her daughters would tell me, ‘This is the car that Prince Harry sends for mummy.”
Cat, herself, has also spoken of her kiss with Prince Harry in the media: “He was holding me off the floor, kissing me. I was absolutely speechless. I was against the wall, and he literally lifted me off the floor and gave me a lovely kiss which I was stunned by.
“It was a lovely kiss… Afterwards I didn’t say anything. I was genuinely, completely blown away.”
Though Herrero says that Cat was separated from her husband at the time, she also says that the Real Housewife had a boyfriend and would often brag about flirting and making out with other men–including Prince Harry.
“Catherine told me that one time that she kissed Prince Harry in a bathroom,” Herrero said. “She told me she met him because she [was] doing interior design for him, even though I never saw her doing any work.”
Catherine Ommanney moved to the U.S. in 2008 when she married husband Charles Ommanney, an award-winning photojournalist. Cat and Charles separated shortly after taping for The Real Housewives of D.C. ended.
