In the nine months since we first learned Prince Harry is dating Meghan Markle, there’s been no shortage of gossip about the couple.

But most of it has centered around concerns that they’re moving too fast and unconfirmed rumors that Harry and Meghan are engaged.

We suppose it was only a matter of time before the "trouble in paradise" talk began, and this week, it really kicked off in earnest.

For starters, there were murmurs out of London about Camilla Parker Bowles disapproving of Meghan and putting pressure on Harry to part ways with the actress.

Now, there are reports that Meghan was not quite single when she and Harry met.

According to The Sun, Meghan was still in a long-term relationship with Canadian "celebrity chef" Cory Vitiello.

We’re not sure what makes Corey a celebrity, as opposed to just a highly-regarded chef, but we’re guessing at some point, he popped up on the weird Canadian version of Chopped that used to be hosted by Tori Spelling’s husband.

(Side note: Why does Canada need its own version of Chopped? How many variations on poutine can there be?)

Anyway, the official narrative regarding Corey and Meghan has always been that they broke up, and she met Harry shortly thereafter.

But The Sun claims that there was a period of overlap, in which Meghan was hooking up with, if not dating, both dudes at the same time.

According to those in the know, Meghan met Harry in May of 2016, when he traveled to Toronto to promote the Invictus Games.

At that time, sources claim, she was very much still dating Corey, which might be part of the reason that Harry and Meghan went to such great pains to keep their relationship under wraps for so long.

Obviously, no one involved wants to confirm that Meghan was two-timing Corey and Harry, and that includes Corey.

Asked about the situation the chef replied simply,  “I can’t comment on that."

Seems like one of those situations where silence speaks volumes.
