Prince Harry’s first serious love interest was Chelsy Davy, whom he met while attending the Stowe School in Buckinghamshire. The two began dating in 2004 and had an on-again, off-again relationship for several years.
Davy, a Zimbabwean lawyer, was born in 1985 and attended the same boarding school as Harry. She was also a student at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. The couple had a tumultuous relationship, with several breakups and reconciliations.
In 2009, the couple officially ended their relationship. Davy was said to be unhappy with the intense media scrutiny of their relationship. She was also reportedly uncomfortable with the royal lifestyle and the restrictions that came with it.
After their split, Davy moved back to Zimbabwe and pursued a career in law. She also founded a charity called “Help Zimbabwe”, which provides education and healthcare to vulnerable children in the country.
Despite their breakup, Davy and Harry remain close friends. They were spotted together in 2017 at the wedding of Pippa Middleton, Harry’s sister-in-law. Davy also attended Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018.
