Chelsy Davy dumps Prince HarryNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:28 am ICT by admin
According to friends, Chelsy is having a “trial separation” from the Prince while she studies at Leeds University and he pursues his Army career.
Sources say that the 22-year-old Zimbabwean made a series of tearful telephone calls to the Prince last week, and later confided to a close friend that Harry had agreed to the “trial separation”.
Chelsy’s decision to end the relationship comes amid reports that she is desperately unhappy in Leeds, where she is a student.
“This is not an over-for-good situation. Chelsy and Harry both love each other very much but Chelsy has had a lot to come to terms with over recent months since moving to the UK and has not found the transition an easy one,” the Daily Mail quoted a friend, as saying.
“She kept saying she needed to take some time out to re-establish herself. She still loves him, but she feels she needs to carve an identity as her own person rather than as Prince Harry’s girlfriend.
“Over recent weeks she’s been coming down to London and partying with Harry’s friends. They were together at Amika nightclub in Kensington just two weeks ago when Chelsy appeared incredibly down and subdued.
“She was not her normal partying self. She had confided it was because she was missing Zimbabwe and her family in South Africa but in fact she was having doubts about her relationship with Prince Harry back then.
“While they care for each other deeply she needs to be able to be her own person. She is pragmatic about the split. They’re using it as an opportunity to take a break rather than splitting for good,” the friend added.
Other reports suggest that Chelsy ended her three-year relationship with the prince after he missed her 22nd birthday party to go to the Rugby World Cup final in Paris.
Rumours are also rife that Chelsy become sick of the prince’s playboy lifestyle and lack of commitment to her.
A senior Palace aide said: “The relationship is over. It has simply run its course. Harry will be carrying on his Army career and Chelsy will continue her studies.”
A spokeswoman for Clarence House said they did not comment on the prince’s private life. (ANI)
