Now Chelsy is all smiles as Prince Harry plots to win her back
Newly single Chelsy arrived at her university in Leeds yesterday looking glum, but today, her mood has clearly lifted.
She was all smiles as she faced photographers on her way to the campus wrapped in a stylish black coat.
Her brighter disposition comes as sources reveal Prince Harry has enlisted the help of his close pal Guy Pelly's girlfriend Susanna Warren to try and convince Chelsy to take him back.
The prince wants Susanna to act as a go-between in a last-ditch effort to build a bridge between the estranged couple.
A well placed source says the South African beauty feels Harry has let her down severely since she moved from Cape Town to Leeds to go to university.
The source said: "Chelsy feels isolated and lonely. Harry promised her he'd be there for her at all times, but he barely came to see her in Leeds. He didn't help her as she struggled with the difficulties of moving country, and moving far away from her family and friends.
"Chelsy basically decided it just wasn't worth it anymore."
But source reveal Susanna Warren, 19, who has become close to Chelsy, is trying to get her to forgive Harry's faults and move on.
Susanna, a student at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, could be the key to getting their three-and-a-half year relationship back on track.
A friend says: "Susanna is trying to convince Chelsy to treat her planned trip home to South Africa as a short break and time to reconsider, rather than a move back home.
"Harry hasn't given up hope. He is desperately trying to get Chelsy back and fight for their relationship but he thinks another girl will be better at softening Chelsy at the moment."
Yesterday, a lank-haired and puffy-eyed, Chelsy was the picture of misery as she trudged through the streets of Leeds.
Her appearance suggested that she had either spent the weekend in tears - or followed her ex-boyfriend's example by drowning her sorrows.
Although it was Chelsy, 22, who decided to call time on the romance - telling friends she needed space to "be herself" - it is clear that the end of her three-year romance with the prince had taken its toll.
Reports have claimed that she found texts from a mystery woman on Harry's phone. She is said to have discovered the messages after overhearing him having a whispered conversation.
The Zimbabwean-born student, who gave up a life of luxury in Cape Town to be closer to Harry, says the move has made her "utterly miserable".
In particular, she is struggling to settle in at Leeds University, where she shares grimy £50-aweek student digs and is studying for a postgraduate degree in law.
Friends say she is ready to quit the course and could move back to Cape Town, where her father has already bought her a £350,000 waterfront apartment.
Yesterday she surfaced shortly before 10am and headed for the university campus, meeting on the way a girl friend who hugged her and asked how she was. "OK", was the tearful reply.
She managed to eat a sandwich in the Student Union bar before going to the law faculty for an afternoon lecture.
Blues and Royals officer Harry was back at his barracks in Windsor yesterday, although friends said he had been in regular touch with Chelsy.
"Chelsy was - and still is - the love of his life," said one. "He will be gutted to see her looking like the weight of the world is on her shoulders."
Over the weekend there was speculation that the prince might already had his eye on someone else after being photographed with a leggy brunette on Friday night.
We can reveal, however, that she is make-up artist Charlotte Cowen - and she is dating one of his best friends.
Miss Cowen, 25, is the girlfriend of Arthur Landon, son of the infamous "White Sultan", Brigadier Tim Landon, who died in August from lung cancer. He made &£500million as an adventurer and arms dealer in oil-rich Oman.
Arthur, who will inherit much of his father's fortune, is an old friend of the prince and met up with him at the London nightclub Amika.
Anyway, I realllly hope the next time he has a girlfriend its someone more stable (not like Alice Dellal or Lilo) because he's a party animal all his own and doesn't need any more encouragement!.
Chelsy is a party animal too. I think they are just going through a rough patch and I don't think it has anything to do with "secret text messages"....I just think the move was hard on Chelsy and she's more vulnerable. I know I would be...
Who will hook Harry next? The eligible beauties who could help the Prince mend his broken heart

So Prince Harry and his girlfriend of three years Chelsy Davy have split amid rumours of her being terrified of being 'pigeonholed as a princess'. But plenty of other eligible - and not so eligible - young women are desperate for that very title. We present a list of the hopefuls...
Scroll to the bottom to see the Mac cartoon on Harry's predicament
1. LADY ELOISE ANSON
As the daughter of acclaimed royal photographer Lord Lichfield, socialite and model Eloise is friends with both princes as well as a host of fashionistas.
Her father left an estimated £10 million fortune, not including the 900-acre family seat, Shugborough Hall, which is leased to Staffordshire Council. The family still has access to the main house.
Eloise, 23, enjoys the limelight and has been regularly "papped" outside the Princes' favourite haunts, Boujis and Cuckoo Club.
Earlier this year she checked into a private clinic amid rumours of an eating disorder.
2. LYDIA FORTE
Sir Rocco Forte's eldest gal, Lydia, has the brains to succeed.
The 22-year-old straight-A student is reading history at St Catherine's College, Oxford and is said to be a close friend of Princess Beatrice, who attended Lydia's 18th birthday bash at one of her father's hotels.
As heiress to a £385million fortune amassed by her father, Lydia is cash-rich, too. Her credentials mean she's found at most society events, and royal haunt Boujis is one of her favourite nightspots.
3. PIPPA MIDDLETON
Pippa - Kate's little sister - graduated from Edinburgh University in July with a degree in English.
Currently "taking some me time" out (just like her sister). During Wills and Kate's brief split earlier this year, 22-year-old Pippa became her sister's partying accessory, socialising with Guy Pelly et al at Mahiki.
Home is a modest, six-bedroom detached house in Bucklebury, Berkshire. Her father Michael, a former pilot, and mother, Carole, a former air hostess, run an internet business selling children's party games with an estimated annual turnover of £2million - so the family is hardly in the same financial league as Harry's other associates.
Nasty rumours abound that Carole Middleton has had designs on both Princes for her daughters, particularly since July when Pippa split up with Hong Kong banking heir JJ Jardine-Matheson. Certainly, nabbing Harry as well as Wills would be rather a coup.
4. KITTY SPENCER
South African-based Kitty Spencer is a straight-A student at Reddam House, a private school for South Africa's elite.
The 17-year-old is Harry's first cousin - the eldest daughter of Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, and his first wife, Victoria Lockwood. The family seat is, of course, Althorp, the 300-acre estate in Northamptonshire which was Diana's childhood home.
With a cool £100million family fortune, Kitty prefers to continue her studies rather than court Press attention. However, she was reluctantly thrust into the limelight earlier this month when she was voted Tatler's Most Eligible Female in their 2007 Little Black Book. All too aware of the tragic Spencer family history, she has so far remained tight-lipped about her future.
5 & 6. ISABELLA and GABRIELLA ANSTRUTHER-GOUGH-CALTHORPE
An actress and model, 27-year-old Isabella [picture no. 5] has the distinction in aristocratic circles of being rather good at her job - she is currently starring in West End musical hit Dirty Dancing.
Isabella is a fourth cousin once removed from Prince Harry and her father, John Austen Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, has a £100million fortune based on the family estate in the Midlands.
She is not exactly available, though - her 22-year-old boyfriend Sam Branson is the son of business mogul Richard.
As Isabella's younger half-sister (her mother is Vanessa, niece of the Duke of Norfolk) 18-year-old catwalk model Gabriella [picture no. 6] is not related to the Princes, but still has noble genes from both parents.
After gaining straight A*s in her GCSEs at £19,530 a year St Swithun's school in Hampshire, she put university plans on hold to pursue modelling. But in spite of her catwalk success, Gabriella does not court attention.
She is also stuck with the unfortunate nickname "Bumpy".
7. ALICE ROTHSCHILD
With a surname that carries a greater cachet than any credit card - her personal fortune is said to be worth hundreds of millions - Alice, 23, doesn't need to work.
However, she recently joined business information firm Grayson Pender Wordsworth as probably the wealthiest researcher in the world.
Alice's father, the late Amschel Rothschild, left a fortune of £18million to his family. Her mother is also the granddaughter of merchant banker James Guinness.
Unsurprisingly, Alice found herself among Tatler's 2005 Most Eligible Women.
8. BEE SHAFFER
Twenty-year-old Bee is taking time out from studying at Columbia University, New York, and is now living in London making a name for herself as a fashion journalist.
Of course, having infamous U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour as a mother might have opened a few doors in that respect.
Her father is eminent New York child psychiatrist David Shaffer, although her parents are separated - her mother's relationship with mobile phone millionaire Shelby Bryan led to the break-up in 1999.
Bee has a parental connection to Harry in that Anna Wintour was a friend of Diana's - and with her mother's impeccable fashion credentials, Bee is certain to shine at any royal function.
9. HENRIETTA SEYMOUR
This could be just the sort of girl party-loving Harry is after - 18-year-old wild child Henrietta's most notorious escapade was turning up for last year's New York Debutantes ball in pink sunglasses and promptly lifting her couture dress to reveal leopard-print tights.
Her father, the Duke of Somerset, spends his time running the family's 5,000-acre estate centred on Bradley Hall, a 14-bedroom Grade II listed stately home in Somerset.
The Duke is asset-rich and his estate is worth millions (perhaps even half-a-billion with all the villages).
10. CHARLOTTE CASIRAGHI
Genuine royalty, though only of the Eurotrash variety. Charlotte, 21, is the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, granddaughter of Grace Kelly, and fourth in line to the throne of the sunny principality.
After her industrialist father Stefano Casiraghi died in a boating accident when she was four, her paternal grandparents Giancarlo and Fernanda Casiraghi gave her a nice present - a small island off Sardinia worth $9million.
Charlotte has appeared in the French and Italian papers, but now she's working for one here - The Independent on Sunday.
11. GINNY FRASER
Ginny, 24, studied at St Andrews with Prince William and became good friends with both Princes.
Reportedly one of the most fanciable girls among William's well-heeled group of students, she now works as an advertising account manager at Vogue.
She was also a pupil at Downe House, in Cold Ash, Berkshire, along with Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Princess Michael of Kent.
Her father, the third Baron Strathalmond, is an underwriter at Lloyds and the vast family estate is in Elstead, near Farnham, Surrey.
The considerable family fortune was founded on the efforts of her great-grandfather, the first baron, an oil industry expert and former chairman of BP.
12. SIENNA MILLER
Famously cheated on by Jude Law, actress and model Sienna is always in attendance at the latest premiere, party or even her local pub - wherever Sienna is, a paparazzi lens won't be far away.
This determined pursuit of fame has helped the 25-year-old's earnings to reach more than £1million a year.
Her parents Jo and Ed were regular fixtures in high society when they married in the Seventies, but the couple divorced when Sienna was six.
Her father, Edward, is a banker-turned-art dealer, while her mother, Josephine, lives in a Chelsea town house.
But would Sienna be willing to swop her current beau, actor Rhys Ifans?
13. LILY COLE
Don't worry, Harry, the schoolgirl outfit was for a part in the new St Trinian's movie.
Still only 19, teenage overachiever Lily is a supermodel, Cambridge student and ambassador for children's charity Global Angels. Surely the perfect wife for Harry, who is heavily involved in the Aids charities his mother championed.
Lily has made an estimated £10million from modelling assignments alone. Not bad for a girl from a three-bedroom semi in Torbay, Devon.
No one would call her shy - she parades down catwalks in barely-there clothes for a living - but she is not your typical champagne-swilling party girl. Lily prefers studying politics and has penned a few articles for women's glossy magazines.
And if he gets desperate...
14. PEACHES GELDOF
At first glance, 18-year-old Peaches might not seem ideal royal girlfriend material.
Her mother, Paula, died from a drugs overdose and her father, Bob, is an outspoken anti-poverty activist.
But she certainly rivals Harry in the party stakes and likes a brawl with paparazzi snappers, too.
Will one day inherit a slice of her father's £35million fortune.
15. CHANTELLE HOUGHTON
At least Harry knows 24-year-old Chantelle could handle life in the spotlight.
Famously dim and an Essex girl to her core, she won Celebrity Big Brother as the only non-celebrity, then made £1million by selling coverage of every aspect of her 10-month marriage to fellow housemate Samuel Preston.
'Poor Harry's inconsolable. They won't let him go to Afghanistan, his girlfriend's dumped him and now he's heard that 24-hour drinking may be reviewed'
This article made me sick for one reason, PIPPA MIDDLETON, I really feel like the Middleton sisters will do ANYTHING to marry into the royal fold. Yuck.
"Ain't nobody got time for that!"
I know the royal family likes to get down with cousins but I thought they at least went to the 2nd ones...
Supposedly they go for the cousins to not contaminate the blood line, Charles and Diana were distant cousins, still gross though.
Good for Chelsea for standing up for herself. I have more respect for her than Kate Middleton.
And who would have ever thought years ago that now Harry would be giving his brother a run for his money in the looks department.
Just found this on teamhighgrove.com I wonder if it's true?
Harry: Take me back
November 17, 2007
From: News of the World
Prince Harry is begging Chelsy Davy to take him back... and sent her a £150 bunch of flowers with the note: "Sorry, love HRH xxx".
The bouquet—signed by the prince using her pet name for him—came after he made three intimate late-night phone calls to the lover who dumped him.
During emotional heart-to-hearts Chelsy, 22, told Harry to "clean up or clear off". Now the pair plan to meet in secret later this week.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton are backing a reunion for the pair.
As he relaxed with pals in Mayfair on Thursday night, Wills told the News of the World: "He'll bounce back."
Within days of our revelation last Sunday that Chelsy had ended their relationship, Harry, 23, told a pal: "Being away from her hurts like hell."
Chelsy has intimated he might have a chance so long as he:
QUITS flirting with girls in nightclubs.
SPENDS more time alone with her, and
ANSWERS his phone more often when they're apart.
Harry's top priority is to stop her quitting the UK for Cape Town.
The prince told his pal: "The thought of her leaving over all this is killing me.
"The fact is, I miss her and don't want us to split. I've told her all this now, and I've asked her to stay. But she's no push-over and she's still thinking it over."
Harry, who originally handled the break-up by running up a £2,500 bill at Kensington's Amika club with a brunette Catherine Cowan, also confessed: "I've been an idiot and I'm really sorry.
"We spoke three times this week. At first she was very angry and didn't stay on for long but eventually I got to explain things. Yes, I get a lot of attention from other women, but I don't want them, I want Chelsy.
"At worst, I may be guilty of harmless flirting but I'd never take anything further while we're together."
If all goes well, the pair may yet spend the New Year together on Bazaruto island off Mozambique. Chelsy's family have reserved five villas there.
A source close to Harry confirmed he sent the bouquet on Wednesday, and added: "He's trying to organise a meeting. Chelsy wants him to cool the partying. She says she doesn't deserve to open a paper and see him falling out of clubs and getting pictured with women.
"He's also got a habit of not checking his phone when he's on a bender and that makes her paranoid.
"She also worries that when they do see each other it's as part of a group."
The source added: "Both William and Kate want them to remain together. They see them as a good influence on each other.
"Kate hasn't seen Chelsy yet but she's let it be known she's very supportive."
"Ain't nobody got time for that!"
They probably need a break...it's really unrealistic to think most relationships people have in their 20's are going to last...the press always builds any girls the princes date into these future brides...so ridiculous
