Prince Harry's Ex-Girlfriend Just Made A Huge Life Change In Secret

Before Prince Harry fell in love with Meghan Markle, he was in a long-term relationship with Chelsy Davy. Harry met the Zimbabwe native in London, and the two started dating on and off for seven years. The prince reportedly told friends that Chelsea was "the best thing that ever happened to me," per Daily Mail. Through the years, she accompanied Harry to the Diana memorial concert in 2007, as well as Prince Charles' 60th birthday. She even met Queen Elizabeth!

But by 2011, Chelsea decided that she didn't want to spend the rest of her life as a royal — mainly due to the constant hounding by the British press. "It was so full-on crazy and scary and uncomfortable," she told The Times, per The Sun. "I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn't cope. I was young, I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible."

The pair's busy schedules also played a part in the relationship's demise. According to Express, Chelsea decided to pull the plug on the romance after Harry insisted that she back out of a charity event so she could spend time with him. Despite what happened between them, the two remained close. She was his date at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011, and was even invited to Harry and Meghan's nuptials in 2018.

Chelsea has lived a private life since her breakup with Harry — and now she's made a huge life change that calls for celebration.

Chelsea Davy has married a millionaire hotelier

Chelsea Davy is a married woman! She tied the knot with Sam Cutmore-Scott in a private ceremony. "They are married," a friend told Daily Mail. "Very few people knew about the wedding."

Sam is a millionaire hotelier who is a director of his family's hospitality company, the Bijou Collection. His brother, Jack, is an actor who has appeared in the Christopher Nolan film "Tenet," per Daily Mail. The news comes after it was revealed that Chelsea and Sam welcomed a son, Leo, in January 2022. The pair — who split their time between Chiswick and the Norfolk coast — are so private that people didn't realize they had a child until he was introduced to their local parish council. In fact, some of Chelsea's friends didn't know she was expecting! 

While Chelsea clearly relishes her privacy, her ex, Prince Harry, and his wife, Meghan Markle, will be back in the UK spotlight when they attend Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee festivities. The couple will make the trip from California with their children, Archie and Lilibet, to honor the queen's 70 years on the British throne. While the couple will be excluded from standing on the royal balcony with Elizabeth, they are expected to participate in other events during the celebration.
