Love Island stars connections to Royal Family members from Prince Harry ex to secret prince

Love Island has seen a collection of Islanders having celebrity links recently but some contestants have connections to the Royal Family.

In the past we've seen Tommy Fury, 23, whose brother is Tyson Fury, Dani Dyer, whose dad is Danny Dyer, and more recently Gemma Owen, 19, who recently name dropped her football legend dad Michael Owen.

However, as well as celebrity links, some past contestants have connections to the Royal Family from working weddings, rumoured exes and one secret prince, here OK! takes a look at the surprising links…

Camilla Thurlow

Camilla Thurlow, 32, appeared on Love Island series three in 2017 where she met now husband Jamie Jewitt.

However, before appearing on the hit ITV2 dating show, Camilla, 32, was reported to have enjoyed a fling with Prince Harry, 37, in 2014.

Camilla was famously grilled about the reports during her time in the ITV2 villa during a game of True or Dare, where Sam Gowland asked: "Is it true that you used to date Prince Harry?", leaving her housemates shocked.

However, the Islander refused to confirm nor deny the reports, simply replying with: "Honestly, a lady never tells."

Camilla is now married to fellow Islander Jamie and the couple have two daughters Nora and Nell.

While Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018, the Sussexes have two children Lilibet and Archie.

AJ Bunker

AJ Bunker appeared on Love Island in 2021, entering the villa with the famous words: "Eyes on the prize, boys."

And it has since emerged that AJ's brother, Tom, has royal connections.

Tom Bunker attended Prince Philip's funeral as a Lance Bombardier in the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery.

In April 2021, Tom was given the responsibility of firing the processional minute gun at the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

Aaron Francis

Aaron Francis appeared on Love Island in 2021.

Prior to his time in the villa, Aaron was a host at celebrity and luxury parties, rubbing shoulders with all sorts of famous faces, including the likes of Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

Aaron worked as a host at both of their weddings, and previously explained: "I hosted and chatted. It was nice and intimate. Everyone's chill."

Aaron vowed not to speak about his famous encounters on Love Island, adding that his role "comes with responsibility" to avoid bringing them up.

Teddy Soares

Teddy Soares appeared on Love Island in 2021.

During his time on the ITV2 show, the Islander, 26, confessed to once being a prince of Nigeria's Delta State until his grandfather's death wiped away the connection.

The revelation was aired during an episode of Love Island's Unseen Bits, with his co-stars left in shock.

Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
