Kate Middleton SHOCK: How Duchess ‘persuaded Prince Harry’s ex she COULDN’T be royal’ – Express

PRINCE Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy “made up her mind once and for all” that she could not be a royal bride after seeing Kate’s example during the 2011 royal wedding, writes a royal biographer.

Kate Middleton and Prince William wed in a glorious ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 2011, in front of the the royal family and millions of viewers round the globe. Prince Harry, now happily married to Megan Markle, was with his girlfriend Chelsy Davy at the time. Katie Nicholl, in her 2017 book “Harry, Life, Loss and Love”, revealed Chelsy was persuaded at the 2011 royal wedding that “the life of a royal bride was not for her”.

The Duke of Sussex had an on-off romance with the Zimbabwean-born Chelsy for seven years.

Ms Nicholl wrote: “Being part of the royal wedding had made Chelsy’s mind up once and for all. 

“The life of a royal bride was not for her , and she told Harry she could never make the sacrifices Kate had made.”

One of Chelsy’s girlfriends told Ms Nicholl: “It was just after the royal wedding when she realised she couldn’t cut it.”

“She saw what it would be like in the spotlight, and she didn’t want that life for herself.

“She truly loved Harry, but knew this wasn’t a life she could lead.”

Ms Nicholl also wrote how, although they “stuck together like glue” and “made an effort to be friends”, Kate Middleton and Chelsy Davy had very different personalities.

She said: “They were fundamentally different young women.

“Kate was sensible, careful, and conservative when it came to how she dressed and behaved.

“Chelsy was a much freer spirit who threw caution to the wind.

“She loved Harry, but the fact that he was a prince was often more of a drawback for her than an advantage.” 

Harry and Chelsy “remained on good terms”, and indeed she was a guest at his 2018 wedding to Meghan at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.
