PRINCE Harry’s former lover has told how his own security guard gave him a dressing down in front of her after he pulled a childish prank.
Catherine Ommanney dated the royal when he was just 21 and she was a 34-year-old mother of two – saying he gave her the “most passionate kiss I’ve ever had”.

She has told how the royal was told to ‘get a grip’ by his security guard
The divorcee has now lifted the lid on their fling to The Celeb Report on Sunday after learning that Harry, 38, was writing about his ex-girlfriends in his new memoir.
She has spoken out because she does not expect it to feature in Harry’s upcoming book Spare.
Catherine, who once starred in American reality TV show The Real Housewives of DC, was separated from ex-husband Stephen when she and Harry met at trendy Art Bar in London’s Chelsea in May 2006.
Harry was accompanied by three Royal Protection Officers who hovered constantly.
She says when everyone started to leave at around 11pm, the prince asked her to “hop in” a Range Rover parked outside with him.
They headed to Eclipse nightclub in South Kensington and were “whisked downstairs to the VIP area.”
But Catherine says Harry got a telling off from one of his security guards for mucking about.
She said: “I started chatting to somebody and Harry took the cloth out of the champagne bucket and put it over my head.
“I was a bit upset because it was freezing. I told him, ‘Stop being so needy, that is not the way to behave.’
“One of his security guards came over and told him off, saying, ‘Get a grip, you can’t behave like that.’
“I saw him get told off like that a few times.”
But Catherine says she had the “time of my life” in 2006 with the prince, and even affectionately nicknamed him “baby” as he had a habit of sucking on lollipops.

Harry was in a long-term on-off relationship with socialite Chelsy Davy at the time of their fling.
She is not sure if Harry was on a break from Chelsy.
Speaking from Majorca, where she now lives, the interior designer said: “He was only 21 so a relationship was the furthest thing from my mind.”
The pair went on a series of dates before the romance was dealt a blow when news of the relationship broke.
After two more dates, Harry changed his number and Catherine did not see him again until 2009, when they bumped into each other at a polo match in Barbados.
It was a year after she married her second husband, from whom she is now separated.
