Before meeting the love of his life and soon-to-be wife Meghan Markle, Prince Harry had two serious relationships: one with Chelsy Davy and another with Cressida Bonas. But according to royal expert Katie Nicholl, author of the biography Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, his relationship with Davy in particular left a big impact. Apparently, Prince Harry was head over heels in love, but it didn’t work out because Davy didn’t want the life of a royal.
The two dated on and off for about six years before calling it quits around 2011. Years later in 2015, the couple reportedly gave their relationship another try. In the biography, sources told Nicholl that they “both hoped there might be a chance of a reconciliation,” and spent the better part of that summer trying to make it work. Ultimately, it didn’t, and the rest is history.
Nicholl went on to say that there’s no bad blood between Prince Harry and Davy and that the exes remain close.
So that might explain why there have been recent reports that Prince Harry plans to invite his ex-girlfriends to his wedding. However, the real question is, will they go? According to Nicholl, Davy might attend, but she’s not too sure about Bonas, since the English actress is not a big fan of the media attention.
We’ll just have to wait until May 19th to find out, but it’s nice to know that Prince Harry is the kind of guy who likes to remain on solid terms with his exes.
