    Oh I am so sad! I hope this isn't true, they were so good together and she would have been great for the RF. :cry:

    Chelsy dumps Prince Harry over Army life... and she's ALREADY changed her Facebook status to 'not in one'

    Prince Harry has split from his girlfriend Chelsy Davy, after she decided that she could no longer cope with the pressures of his military career.
    Chelsy, 23, who has just returned from a holiday in South Africa and Mozambique, has told friends their five-year relationship is over.

    The news leaked out after she altered her profile on the social networking website Facebook to read: ‘Relationship: Not in one’.

    Last night a senior Royal source confirmed the couple had separated, just three weeks after they returned from a romantic break in Mauritius.
    The Prince, promoted to lieutenant last April after a ten-week tour of Afghanistan, was
    also said to be worried about the strains on the relationship after recently starting an arduous 18-month training course with the Army Air Corps.
    A military source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Harry’s training is going to be seriously demanding and he has been told there will be little time for girlfriends and socialising.
    'He is living in a modest room with a single bed and won’t be allowed to drink from Monday to Friday, and he will need to knuckle down.’
    However, the split will be a blow for the 24-year-old Prince, coming so soon after the race row that followed the release of a home-made video in which Harry was heard to refer to a fellow cadet at Sandhurst as a ‘little Paki’.
    Zimbabwean Chelsy, who is studying a postgraduate law course at Leeds University, had recently spoken of plans to relocate to the UK and make London her full-time home in order to be closer to her boyfriend.

    They discussed the idea during their New Year holiday to Mauritius, but Chelsy called
    off their relationship last week after reconsidering her future.
    Sources in Royal circles believe that the move is a permanent one. A senior aide said: ‘Harry has said it’s all over with Chelsy, but he has insisted it is amicable.
    ‘It’s all very recent and has come as something of a shock. They are a couple who were very much in love, it just seems to be the case that it was the right person for
    Harry but the wrong time. They are still very young, so who knows what will happen.’
    Chelsy has told friends she is now reassessing her future. She had planned to join City law firm Allen & Overy after her graduation later this year. The company confirmed: ‘We did offer her a place and she has accepted.’

    But last night friends said Chelsy would probably move back to South Africa now the relationship is over.

    ‘Chelsy has told us it’s over and it looks to be permanent because the last time they split, Chelsy never changed her Facebook status,’ a source said last night. ‘This time she has made a point of doing so.
    ‘She said the reason they split is because they just don’t get enough time together and Harry’s Army course has put a lot of pressure on them.

    ‘He’s told her it has to come before anything, and she’s a bit fed up of always coming second.

    ‘She was prepared to make a big sacrifice by moving to the UK. She had her job lined up and a place to live in London. She’s a very bright girl who wants to be a successful lawyer, but that’s all up in the air now.

    ‘She misses South Africa so much that I imagine she will move back if things are over with Harry for good. She finds the weather here really depressing and she suffers terribly from homesickness.

    ‘She has just returned from a beach holiday with friends. That’s when she decided to call the relationship off.
    ‘She and Harry had an incredible holiday together, but after he left, she really started thinking and realised he wouldn’t have much time with her during his training with the Army.’
    It is the end of a tumultuous relationship. The couple first met in the spring of 2004, when Chelsy was a 19-year-old pupil at the exclusive Cheltenham Ladies College, close to Prince Charles’s Highgrove estate.

    Prince Harry had dated Chelsy Davy for five years, but the couple have now ended their relationship
    Yet the romance only came to the world’s attention eight months later, when the young Prince was holidaying with Chelsy at a remote polo lodge 55 miles from Buenos Aires. Soon after, in a candid moment with a reporter, Prince William admitted that his brother was ‘madly in love’.
    But Chelsy was a controversial serious first girlfriend for the Prince. Her father, millionaire safari operator Charles, ran a game farm in Zimbabwe with reportedly close ties to Robert Mugabe’s regime; while her relationship with Harry, at least in the early years, appeared to consist of a series of exotic holidays.
    There was also the issue of the 6,000 miles between Harry in the UK and Chelsy in Cape Town, where she moved to study commerce and economics.

    In April 2005, Clarence House denied claims Harry had cheated on his new girlfriend with attractive 17-year-old Alexia Bergstrom who he met in a nightclub in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Klosters.

    And just a year later he earned his girlfriend’s wrath by celebrating the end of his military training at Sandhurst with a visit to a Spearmint Rhino lap-dancing club in Slough.
    Then in June 2007 the Prince, at the time a second lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry, was pictured being kissed by two bar girls while on Army training in Canada.

    There were further embarrassing reports that he had invited a third barmaid back to his rented house and ‘cavorted’ in front of her in a blue and orange sarong before whipping off his boxer shorts and spanking her.
    Chelsy moved to Leeds in September 2007 to be closer to Harry and to pursue her studies. But just two months later, Chelsy told the young Prince that she ‘needed space’ to carve out her own identity.

    Harry’s reaction was to boast that he planned to get ‘as drunk as possible’. However, the pair were reconciled the following month.
    Chelsy was the driving force in that first split, but unlike now she was adamant at the time that it was merely a ‘trial separation’.Zimbabwe-born Chelsy had reportedly told friends she could no longer put up with his lifestyle and time spent apart.

    Not that I care that much about the lives of people I don't know, but I thought they were a sweet well-balanced couple. I always thought she came across as a really, strong independent girl who wouldn't put up with Harry's BS. I'm not surprised at the reasoning though - it makes sense.

    Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy split up

    Prince Harry and his girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, have split up after a five-year romance, their friends have revealed.

    One senior royal source who knows the couple told The Sunday Telegraph: "It is true: they have parted. It's amicable but the relationship has run its course."
    However, it appears that it was Miss Davy, 23, who is a law student at Leeds University, who may have decided to end their relationship last week, shortly after they returned from a holiday in Mauritius. It is understood that Miss Davy had told friends she could no longer put up with his lifestyle and time spent apart.
    Prince Harry, 24, started his helicopter training at the Army Air Corps HQ in Hampshire last Monday. The Prince is believed to have sought advice from his father, the Prince of Wales, and his uncle, Earl Spencer, in recent weeks. He has also discussed his relationship difficulties with his brother, Prince William.
    A Clarence House spokesperson said that they were not prepared to comment on the Prince's personal life. However, a royal source said: "They [the couple] are still on speaking terms but they are categorically no longer an item."
    Miss Davy, a party-loving blonde, had initially seemed an unlikely princess, particularly as her father apparently had links with Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean President.
    However, in recent months there had been speculation that the couple might even marry after she started attending royal functions.
    The couple attended the Concert for Diana together in July 2007, and Miss Davy frequently turned out to watch Prince Harry play polo. In May 2008, Miss Davy attended the wedding of Peter Phillips, Prince Harry's cousin, to Autumn Kelly: her first official outing as his girlfriend at a formal Royal family function.
    At the end of last year, Miss Davy also attended Prince Charles's 60th birthday party for family and friends at Highgrove, his Gloucestershire home.

    "Chelsy never changed her Facebook status"

    ohh then it must be serious.:rolleyes:

    ''The Prince is believed to have sought advice from his father, the Prince of Wales, and his uncle, Earl Spencer, in recent weeks. He has also discussed his relationship difficulties with his brother, Prince William''

    good harry. cause all of these men have had great relationship pasts. One cheated on your mother, the other goes through wives like water and well William has his own issues.

    good grief. Unlike Will,Harry has a good thing going on and hopefully he knows it and they will get back together.

    I love that the problem is she didnt put up with his bullsh*t and found it disrespectful that he flirted with other girls.you think!?!
    I have to admit though, i'm really surprised and saddened, really saddened,but i'm sure they'll get back together and worse case scenario is that it'll take 18 months till then.:(

    that's a good way of putting it. they could use some shaking up.And Chelsy is just the girl to do it. I always thought of Chelsy as a free spirit,not unlike Diana,and always wondered if she was too good for the royal family.

    At first, I wasn't too keen on Chelsy. I thought she was just another trashy, spoiled, rich kid. But over the years she has been with Harry I have come to see that she is in fact a very independent, intelligent and private person. I think she has been one of the better influences on Harry in the last few years, in spite of the "party girl" image the press gave her.

    However, I think ultimately this independent spirit made her inappropriate for the royal family. Don't get me wrong; I would much rather have her as my future queen than Kate "Waity" Middleton. I just don't think the BRF and their stone age advisers really want someone who might think outside the box. They want a woman who will fall in line with what they dictate, not carve out her own path. It's a pity because it is this line of thinking which is making the monarchy obsolete in the modern age and will ultimately lead to their downfall. Evolve or become extinct.

    Chelsy Davy: The flighty blonde in a bikini who couldn't face up to life as a princess


    By Rebecca English and Victoria Moore
    Last updated at 11:02 AM on 26th January 2009




    The split between Harry and Chelsy may look impulsive but it's not the result of a tempestuous spat. The question of what to do is one that Chelsy has been stewing over for some time.

    Several months ago she confided in two friends over glasses of wine in a Durban beach bar that she was struggling with the relationship.
    She and Harry were in love but the logistics of their day-to-day existence were becoming insurmountable, she said.
    [​IMG]
    Sunnier times: Chelsy on a Caribbean holiday with Harry in 2007

    Any long-distance relationship must always be a compromise but on top of that there were the pressures of Harry's status, and his royal duties. Her friends' responses exactly encapsulated the dilemma.
    'Chelsy, you're too young,' advised one. 'It's a big commitment. He's used to it all. But it's a big deal for you.'
    'Yeah,' sparked up the other, 'but you're so good together.'

    Indeed, Chelsy and Harry are good together. They adore each other and have done ever since they were introduced, five years ago, by mutual friends in South Africa.
    The lively blonde was initially dismissed by courtiers as being 'too flighty'. But Zimbabwean-born Chelsy has proved to those who assumed this love affair would rapidly fizzle out after a flurry of short skirts, late nights and empty vodka bottles that there is more to her than that.
    [​IMG]
    Rows: Chelsy when she briefly left the prince 14 months ago
    With a Cape Town degree in politics, philosophy and economics behind her, she is expected to complete a postgraduate law course at Leeds University this year and has been offered a place as a trainee solicitor at law firm Allen & Overy. 'I can't tell you how proud Harry is of her,' says a friend.
    It's an open secret that the prince loves - and is still in love with - Chelsy's vitality and her determination to create a life for herself that includes, but isn't dependent on, him.
    Privately, he also relishes the fact that his girlfriend, unlike his brother's, has the individuality to get out there and carve out a career.


    More...



    No one who knows Chelsy could imagine her remaining in self-imposed purdah at her parents' home, sleeping in her childhood bedroom and cycling to work at the family firm, apparently waiting for an engagement to bring some meaning to her life, as 27-year-old Kate Middleton has been doing.
    In the end, though, this has been their undoing. Much has been made of the idea that Chelsy is 'fed up with' Harry's Army life. The prince was promoted to lieutenant in April and has just embarked on a 14-month training course with the Army Air Corps.

    He has been told in no uncertain terms that girlfriends and emotional baggage will have to take a back seat.
    It means he and Chelsy would have to wait until the summer of 2010 to begin anything approaching a 'normal' relationship - one that didn't depend only on sunny holidays and stolen weekends.

    [​IMG] The couple were said to be 'completely in love'
    The reality, as Chelsy knows, is that she wouldn't get it even then and this long-term impasse, not short-term frustration with Harry's Army regime, is why the couple have finally decided to go their separate ways.
    These two have been through a lot together. There have been hammer and tongs rows. There was the bust-up when Harry celebrated the end of his Sandhurst course at a lap-dancing club.
    The temporary break-up 14 months ago after Chelsy found saucy texts from another girl on his mobile.
    The time Chelsy, so incensed by photos of Harry kissing barmaids on a break from an Army training course in Canada, called him to say 'You're dumped' - only to fly to England to attend the Diana memorial concert with him three days later. The endless stories about Harry flirting with - or worse - this or that girl.
    And 'Chelsy is no angel in this department either,' says a friend pointedly. They are referring to Jabu Kirkland, the crocodile-hunting son of a well-heeled Cape Town family, to whom Chelsy became close during her Christmas break in South Africa, while Harry was serving in Afghanistan.
    Enlarge [​IMG]
    Prince Harry had dated Chelsy Davy for five years, but the couple have now ended their relationship
    Break-up and arguments notwithstanding, friends still describe Harry and 'Chels', as he calls her, as ' starcrossed lovers' whose relationship has always been passionate.
    Their story subverts the classic fairy tale in which a handsome prince rescues a beautiful young girl from poverty by taking her to live happily ever after in his palace.
    It's true that Harry fell in love at first sight. But Chelsy already had everything - wealth, brains, looks and a close, loving family that was especially attractive to a young man badly scarred by his own parents' divorce and the death of his mother when he was 12.

    [​IMG] Chelsy indulges in a little retail therapy last week

    All Harry had to give Chelsy was himself and in the end, hamstrung by what must often feel like the curse of his royal birth, he couldn't even do that. 'It's not just that Chelsy's not interested in becoming a princess,' says one who knows them.

    'She actively doesn't want it. For her, Harry being royal gets in the way of them being together and has no benefits at all.
    'Chelsy and Harry have always been happier together away from all that fuss in her homeland, not his.'
    For the first three years the couple kept their relationship alive with romantic holidays in the African bush. Harry would love to escape permanently from the golden cage of his royal existence and set up home with Chelsy.
    He once told a friend: 'I just love talking to her. I just dream of being away with her on our own, sleeping under the stars with all the time in the world to do whatever we want.'
    But as third in line to the throne, he has little freedom to choose where or how he lives.

    It has been Chelsy who has had to make all the sacrifices, moving from an ocean view apartment in Cape Town to run-down student digs in Leeds close to the most burgled street in Britain, where she hates the damp weather and has been desperately homesick.
    This homesickness, say friends, is an important factor in their split, as the entries on her Facebook page make clear.
    'Chelsy is SO ridiculously happy to be back!' chirped her profile on December 23 as she went home to South Africa for Christmas. Then, on January 10 as she prepared to return to Leeds, it was changed to 'Chelsy doesn't wanna go!'
    Says a friend: 'Chelsy's heart is with her family and Africa. She comes from a relaxed family with different values and a completely different lifestyle from the royals. This is what Harry loves about her.


    'The irony is that ultimately this is why they can never be together for ever. She has often told her friends she will never marry him not only because she doesn't, ultimately, want to live in England but also because she doesn't want the attention that comes with dating a royal. She wants a normal life.'
    Kate Middleton, a girl who's been here before and is by no means certain of a happy ending herself, has already been in touch to offer support and advice.
    As for what their families make of it, it's hard to know who will be more relieved.
    CHELSY'S father, Charles Davy, is a controversial figure in his homeland. The multi-millionaire is a business partner in a lucrative safari company with Webster Shamu, a leading politician in Robert Mugabe's government.
    It is notable that he has been one of the few white landowners in the country not to have been affected by the president's brutal land grab policy. Associates describe him as 'powerful' and 'ruthless' and his background could perhaps have proved problematic for the Royal Family had Chelsy and Harry decided to marry.
    Funnily enough, though, the Davys have far more concerns about being associated with the Windsors. 'Harry has bodyguards with him every hour of the day,' Chelsy's grandfather once said. 'What happens to her when she isn't with him?'
    Unlike the Middletons, who seem to thrive on the social status of their daughter's royal connection, the Davys appear immune to such snobbery.
    There are other problems too: The attention has benefited the Middletons' family business; for the Davys' business dealings it has proved most unwelcome.
    Everyone agrees that the split is the sensible option. Neither Harry nor Chelsy like it, but there's a feeling that it's also the only choice they have.

    I liked her fine but I really never saw her as the kind of person interested in dedicating herself to public service *shrugs*.

    What the hell is that? I´ve read this article like nine hours ago and she wasn´t that orange on the first photo. She´s got quite dark make-up but it didn´t look that bad. It´s ridiculous that dailymail photoshopped that picture so much.

    It's not surprising, she wants other things. If she became a princess she would be like Kate, holed up waiting around for the right time. You have to give up so much of your life...and besides her father's connections to Mugabe probably would've put a wrench in the operation eventually.

    Will Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy Get Back Together?

    by Maricar Macalincag on February 5th, 2009

    [​IMG]
    Chelsy Davy picks her way through the snow on her way to class at Leeds University.

    Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy may be finding it difficult to simply walk away from their 5-year romance. After their split, first announced on Chelsy’s Facebook account, it was almost taken by granted by royal-watchers that Chelsy would go back to her beloved South Africa. After all, it was never a secret how much she hated the cold and gloomy English climate. The only reason she ever went and stayed was to be closer to Prince Harry.
    Now that Chelsy is wrapping up her studies at Leeds University, and she is no longer dating the ginger-haired royal, there is nothing to stop her from going back to her home, to enjoy the sun and be with her family. However, it appears that Chelsy will be staying on in England. She has accepted a position at the London-based law firm Allen and Overy, where she’ll be working as a junior solicitor. She will live closer to Harry than she has ever been.

    A friend of the couple has reportedly said that the pair are having doubts about their break-up, and that they are “missing each other terribly”.
    The couple might have called it quits, but it may not be forever. Chelsy’s decision to stay longer in England may be a sign that she is adjusting well to the clime. Maybe we haven’t seen the last of Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy together.
