Even though he seems incredibly happy with Meghan, Prince Harry dated someone else for a very long time. However, his long-term girlfriend Chelsy Davy and he didn’t tie the knot. And here is the reason why.
Prince Harry and Chelsy met in 2004
Harry met Chelsy when he finished Eton College, which is a boarding school for boys aged 13-18. After that, he went to the military academy in Sandhurst. Chelsy swept him off his feet, and he fell for her within a few days. She was the daughter of Zimbabwean billionaire and when the two started dating, they were inseparable. She even spent quality time with Kate Middleton and they became good friends. The relationship between her and Harry was unstable but lasted for about seven years.
They ended things in 2015
The couple officially broke up in 2009, but it wasn’t exactly the end of everything. They remained good friends, so Harry wanted Chelsy to be his date on William and Kate’s wedding in 2011. That is when their romance was rekindled. However, a few months later, they broke up again. Harry was linked to her again four years later, in 2015, when he went to Africa on a conservation trip. About a year later, Harry met Meghan Marke.
The reason the two didn’t get married is Chelsy not wanting to be a part of the royal family
They could stay together after Will and Kate’s wedding, but Chelsy thought that royal life was too much for her. She saw how the media wanted to know everything about them and also there were too many rules and traditions. She simply didn’t want to lead a life like that. In one of her interviews, she said that all the paparazzi made her feel scared and uncomfortable.
Harry and Chelsy remained good friends, and she also attended the wedding
Even though they could have got married if Chelsy wanted to, things worked out just fine. They split up as good friends. She even attended his and Meghan’s wedding last May. Also though she was linked with other men, she is still unmarried.
