Prince Harry and Chelsy split

2011-05-18 20:12
London - Britain's Prince Harry's has split up with Chelsy Davy.

The Zimbabwean-born beauty has reportedly called time on their seven-year on/off relationship after realising she doesn't want to risk her independence by marrying into the royal family.

A friend of the pair said:  "Even though Chelsy and Harry have very strong feelings for one another, Chelsy had to let him go. They've been together so long the next stage would be an engagement. "

While Chelsy was happy to attend the wedding of Harry's brother Prince William to Princess Catherine as his plus one on April 29, she is said to have made up her mind after seeing the amount of pressure put on the new Duchess of Cambridge.

The pal added to Grazia magazine: "They've discussed marriage but her mind was most definitely made up by Catherine and William's wedding, and so while she was happy to be his date on the big day, she's now told him they should see other people.

‘Really hard’

"It has been really hard for both of them and it wasn't a decision they took lightly."

The break-up comes soon after it was revealed that Chelsy has made summer plans without Harry, and is to go on a tour of Europe with her friend Melissa Percy.

Although Harry is "besotted" with the 25-year-old blonde he has finally been forced to accept that she doesn't want to sacrifice her independence for a royal life.

Another source said:  "Harry is besotted with Chelsy. She is the love of his life, but Chelsy is adamant she doesn't want to lose her independence.  So she had to end the relationship.  Chelsy's been feeling this way for some time now, but her reluctance to commit has only seemed to make Harry keener. However, finally he's accepted her decision."

      You might think so. My personal different - I don't understand the relevance of the royal family in this age or what makes them better than everybody else. This whole royal family thing probably contributes much more to tourism than it costs England (a country with somewhat questionable relevance in 2011) to keep the bunch of inbred rascals going.

      Come on Dad, Royal Family Schwamily. They were/are 2 youngsters in love with each other. There is always the other option, i.e. where Harry dethrones himself and becomes a Commoner! We've had this before with Ms. Wallis before WWII. So if he is really so mega-besotted with his Chelsy, well, he can always start living the simple life and elope and marry her in Gretna Green and disappear with her somewhere for the next 2 years or so. In our world, everything is possible .. and money makes it so.

      @ Win14: Harry will always be a prince. He cannot renounce that. He was born into the royal family. The only time he can renounce his title is if he becomes King. He may however live a simple life regardless of being prince, that is his prerogative, but I think that is where the problem lies. He doesn't want to. He want to be royal and live the royal life.

      Yes Win14, that will really turn the press off.

    ooooh oh no oh no... wait, i don't give a shit

      SoulDaddy - 2011-05-18 21:13

      she's probably a skank anyways

      FreemanEC - 2011-05-18 21:42

      she has nice hair though...

      @SoulDaddy - Nice of you to judge! On her behalf - you are a halfwit slut & an idiot to boot!

    Bit of a stretch to call her a beauty....

      Frangipani - 2011-05-19 09:42

      She s no beauty, a blonde yes and quite nice hair but she is still not a beauty. I have nothing against the kid but the fact is she has really ugly teeth

      Amanda van Breda - 2011-05-20 15:29

      She looks a lot like 'Miss Piggy'. If she had a rounder more pronounced nose, the resemblence would be uncanny. I'm not a hater but not a liker either. Harry will find a nicer lady...

    Good on you Chelsy! I adore Harry, but glad Chelsy made a sober decision.

  • ds - 2011-05-19 08:49

    Ahhh, history repeats itself. Harry/Chelsy are walking in Charles/Camilla's footsteps. Harry is going to marry some poor girl but will always be in love with Chelsy. Same for Chelsy. They are going to mess up the lives of two other people and propably kids too ... and they end up marrying when they are quite older ...

    The pal says...... Even if one did care, how much credence does one give such a vague and distant source.

  • Frangipani - 2011-05-19 09:43

    She has made a very sensible choice!

  • melanie - 2011-05-19 10:43

    "beauty"?? come on man, get real. and do the royal family want to be associated with ppl who're bolstering up uncle bob?

  • janfi - 2011-05-20 09:30

    Now Harry is free to marry Pippa!!!

  • Winston - 2011-05-20 12:31

    Maybe he wants to date that pretty girl Pippa... LOL!
