The world’s media has always focused on the deathly dull romance between balding British heir Prince William and Kate Middleton, but we at Scandalist always preferred to give that charisma-free pairing a wide berth and instead focus our royal watch on Prince Harry and his glam African girlfriend Chelsy Davy instead. So we’re a little gutted to report that they have split, with the feisty Chelsy deciding the stifling life of a royal consort wasn’t for her. (Hey, what sane person would want it?)
“She has simply had enough. They have been going through what she calls a ‘rough patch’ and she didn’t see the point in going on,” reported a friend to the News of the World, who claim the blonde bombshell called it off in a series of “heartbreak phone calls”.
During their five-year relationship, Chelsy has put up with seen Harry through a series of tabloid-troubling experiences, including his dressing up in a Nazi uniform for a fancy-dress party, flirting it up with a series of other girls in nightclubs, and recently being caught out using a racist term on video. Personally, we think she’s made an astute decision. We only hope our optimism isn’t burst by a tacky “Harry Was Crap In Bed” revelation. We don’t think our stomachs could take it. [Photo: AFP]
