Jenna and Prince Harry, 31, sparked romance rumours back in June 2015, when they were pictured looking 'flirty and tactile' following a charity polo match.
Ironically, Jenna is playing Harry's great-great-great-great grandmother in the new series.
A source said at the time: 'It was a very flirty, very tactile encounter. She was leaning in to him and he had his hand on her knee. From their body language, it looked like they were really enjoying each other’s company.
‘They were sitting very close, laughing lots and touching each other.'

Getting to grips: Jenna playing Queen Victoria in a new ITV series based on the monarch's life
Jenna revealed that to play Victoria she had to prove she could learn to side saddle on a horse while wearing a corset.
She also had to learn to play Beethoven on the piano, although she remarked, 'I wasn't very good at that.'
Having read the 62million words the monarch recorded in her journal throughout her life, from 1819 to 1901, she said:
'We haven't shied away from some of the steamy side of things.
'The chemistry and passion and her love for her husband Albert was strong but turbulent at times.'
