He has now been apparently been connecting with the Victoria’s Secret Angel, 34, making the seventh time he has dated a model from the brand.
A source told The Sun: ‘Harry is one of the biggest music superstars in the world so it’s not surprising supermodels are lining up to date him.
‘He’s got history with Victoria’s Secret models and has been linked to six others who have all walked in their fashion show.

‘Candice is one of Victoria’s Secret’s most successful Angels and Harry would be a lucky man if he managed to woo her.’
MailOnline have contacted Harry and Candice’s representatives for comment.
Harry and Candice originally met in Shanghai when he performed at the Victoria Secret show in 2017.
Other VS models that Harry has apparently dated over the years, he was linked to Cara Delevingne in 2013.
He also briefly dated Kendall Jenner in 2014 for three months.
The following year, Harry was in a relationship with Nadine Leopold but split shortly after, citing their clashing work schedules as the reason.
It was a busy year for Harry’s love life, as he also reportedly dated Angels Sara Sampaio and New Zealand native Georgia Fowler in 2015.

It has been suggested that his hit song Kiwi was about his relationship with Georgia.
The sixth Angel he dated was Camille Rowe, who he dated from 2017 for around a year. Fans believed he wrote several songs about her on his Fine Line album.
French-American Camille Rowe became his sixth Angel date in 2017, and he has waited six years before a link to number seven.
However when he released the song Falling, fans assumed the reason for their break-up was possibly due to the fact that Harry had cheated on her.
The lyrics to the song read: ‘I’m in my bed and you’re not here. And there’s no one to blame but the drink and my wandering hands.’
Meanwhile, Candice has been publicly single since her split from Hermann Nicoli in 2018, who she shares her two children with.

No thanks! According to a friend of the pop sensation Harry was extended an invitation to Anna Wintour ‘s prestigious event but graciously declined after learning that Olivia and Emily, 31, were both attending
Harry’s dating habits have been getting him in hot water in recent weeks, amid claims ‘avoided’ this month’s Met Gala ‘like the bubonic plague’ in order to save himself from the risk of having an ‘awkward run-in’ with both his ex-girlfriend Olivia Wilde and his recent fling Emily Ratajkowski.
According to a friend of the pop sensation Harry was extended an invitation to Anna Wintour’s prestigious event but graciously declined after learning that Olivia and Emily, 31, were both attending.
‘Harry was invited to the Met Gala, but knowing that both of them were definitely going, he avoided it like it was the bubonic plague,’ the insider told DailyMail.com.
‘He was told by his team that they would take all necessary steps to ensure that there was no awkward run in with Olivia, but he was not trying to risk it at all.’
Awks! Harry (at the Met Gala in 2019) declined his invite to the Met Gala to avoid a run-in with his ex Olivia and recent fling Emily Ratajkowski, 31, a source has shared
‘Harry has no desire to have a face-to-face encounter with Olivia at this time,’ the insider adds.
DailyMail.com has contacted Harry’s spokesperson for comment.
The Met Gala marked the first time that Olivia and Emily have crossed paths since the model was caught on camera enjoying a very public kiss with Harry on the streets of Tokyo.
But while Emily and Harry’s incredibly public display is said to have left Olivia feeling ‘betrayed’, neither woman showed any signs of tension last night when they were both seen attending the Met Gala – before heading to the same after party at New York City hotspot Zero Bond.
Still, Harry – who was in a relationship with Don’t Worry Darling director Olivia for two years until their November 2022 split – was not willing to take any risks when it came to potential run-ins with the two women.
‘Running into Olivia at an event with Emily would just be way too intense,’ the source adds.
And for good reason. Four months after splitting with Olivia, Harry shocked the world when DailyMail.com published exclusive photos of him and Emily locking lips in a parking lot in Japan.
At the time, a source told DailyMail.com that Olivia felt ‘betrayed’ by Emily’s fling with her former partner, which happened just weeks after the two ladies were seen mingling at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party.

‘Olivia and Emily were friends and this is a betrayal,’ the insider shared.
Prior to that Olivia and Emily had previously attended one of Harry’s concerts for his Love On Tour shows – dancing side by side at one point.
But if there is any friction simmering between the two starlets, they did not allow it to show on Monday night’s red carpet, where they both put on a dazzling display – even in the absence of the former One Direction star, who has previously proved himself to be one of the leading style stars of the glittering soiree.
In fact, Harry’s fashion-forward ensembles have turned him into a mainstay of the industry – and in 2019, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna bestowed the ultimate honor upon him by inviting him to be a co-chat of that year’s Met Gala, alongside Serena Williams, Alessandro Michele, and Lady Gaga.
The title of co-chair was made all the more significant given that Harry had not yet attended the event – making his debut that same year.
The following year, Harry became the first man to ever grace the cover of American Vogue solo. Since then, he has appeared in countless issues.
However, Harry was unable to celebrate his 2020 cover success at the Met Gala that year because it was canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Then, in 2021, the popstar was forced to decline Anna’s invite once again because of a scheduling conflict with his Love On Tour, which had him performing in Houston on the same night that the iconic event took place.

Anna made clear there were no hard feelings however when she was seen attending one of Harry’s concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City just a few months later – with images capturing the famously-frosty editrix beaming with delight as she watched the performer on-stage.
Fans had hoped that Olivia and Harry might make their Met Gala debut as a couple at 2022’s event – only to be left disappointed when they failed to appear on the red carpet, an absence that they never publicly addressed.
Harry left his fans wanting again last night when he failed to turn up to the gala – even though he is currently enjoying a break from his world tour, which is due to resume on May 13 with a concert in Denmark.
Although Harry did not partake in last night’s ménage à trois with his recent lady loves, they did not hold back when it came to their fashion choices.
Both ladies looked absolutely stunning when they walked the red carpet minutes apart for the Met Gala, which was themed in honor of late fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld.
It is unclear if they had any interaction at the actual event, but it seems unlikely that they did not see each other all night.
Following the Met Gala, Olivia and Emily upped their fashion game and arrived within minutes of each other to the VIP after-party at Zero Bond, where they partied the night away.
While the women previously had a friendly relationship, tensions between them escalated after the Emily told Vogue Spain she ‘feels bad’ for Olivia for hooking up with her ex-boyfriend.
The 2023 Met Gala returned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Sydney Sweeney in attendance at the annual fundraising event.
Since 1948, stars have ascended the majestic staircase into a very exclusive party where no selfies are allowed.
This year, the ball’s theme was Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was Chanel’s long-time creative director. He passed at age 85 in 2019.
