I was really surprised to read on twitter the other night that Harry is now being reported as being back together with Cressida. I mean, wasn’t it *just* reported that he was back with Chelsy? I can’t keep up. My head was spinning.
Naturally, I wanted answers. 😉
I must admit, the royal correspondents on twitter answer 99% of my tweets, even during the busy moments on tour. I’m really impressed and thankful for them taking their time to respond.
Let’s look at the varying reports:
US Weekly claims: Chelsy and Harry are back together.
The sexy redheaded royal and Davy, 29, have been secretly meeting up since a date in February, sources tell Us. For Harry’s 31st birthday, the bubbly corporate lawyer flew 8,500 miles to be by his side in London. (US Weekly.)
The Sun: Cressida and Harry are back together.
The 26-year-old actress joined him and close friends for the bash in a private room at a pub.
They were reunited on Tuesday night, just hours after The Sun revealed Cressida had split from her actor boyfriend.
Our exclusive pictures are the clearest indication that the pair want to give their relationship another go, as we had also reported. (The Sun.)
People magazine: Harry is unattached.
While he is clearly keeping close to his exes, the source tells PEOPLE he doesn’t have anyone special in his life at the moment. (Cue the confetti.) (People magazine.)
This Vanity Fair article delves even deeper into the latest reports.
So, now that you’ve read this weirdly long discourse on the love life of Prince Harry, you probably have even less of a sense of what is going on than before you read it! Is he still with Chelsy? Reconnected with Cressida? Romancing both of them simultaneously?!?! Or is he using the two as a distraction from his relationship with, like, Suki Waterhouse, or even, just maybe, a “commoner”? Maybe he’s dating Gwyneth Paltrow, and she’s the reason he’s been sporting the Chris Martin-y scruff! O.K., now we’re just blatantly making stuff up; all this uncertainty has us delirious. (Vanity Fair.)
First there was the wonderful news from Sweden about Crown Princess Victoria’s pregnancy. Now, there’re reports of Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy getting back together? What a great week for royal news!
A quick recap:
Chelsy Davy, lawyer and daughter of a Zimbabwean safari farmer, has had a an on-again, off-again relationship with Prince Harry since 2004. Chelsy officially called the relationship “quits” in 2011 on Facebook, as one does. She declared the royally life “not for her,” though she and Prince Harry have stayed friends, even attending the royal wedding in 2011.
2004: The pair first meet. Miss Davy, 19, is a pupil at Cheltenham Ladies College near Prince Charles’s Highgrove estate. They later go public with their relationship when they are spotted holidaying together in Argentina and Prince William says his younger brother is “madly in love”.
April 2006: Miss Davy is rumoured to be “livid” after Harry reportedly visited a lap-dancing club near Slough to celebrate the end of his training at Sandhurst.
September 2007: Miss Davy starts a degree in law at Leeds University.
October 2007: Newspapers report the couple’s split after Harry misses Miss Davy’s 22nd birthday party to go to the Rugby World Cup final in Paris. But the pair reconcile later that month.
May 2008: The couple attend Peter Phillips’s wedding to Autumn Kelly, Miss Davy’s first official outing as the Prince’s girlfriend at a formal royal family function.
January 2009: Friends discover the couple have broken up after Ms Davy changes her relationship status on Facebook to single. Harry is said to be “gutted”.
September 2009: The split does not last long with the couple getting back together a few months after.
June 2010: The pair are said to have broken up again.
February 2011: The couple are reported to have rekindled their relationship with a romantic meal at a London restaurant.
April 2011: Harry reportedly tells Miss Davy at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: “You’re next”. But the couple split again soon after the event.
November 2011: Miss Davy reportedly turns down a lucrative offer to write a kiss-and-tell book about her romance with Harry.
December 2013: The phone hacking trial heard how the News of the World’s former royal editor, Clive Goodman, described Ms Davy “blitzing” Prince Harry with “dozens of calls”.
September 2015: Reports suggest the pair are considering giving the relationship another try.
One thing is certain, Harry wants to find a wife. He has said so himself on several occasions, and twice publicly. And the endlessly fascinating subject of Harry’s love life appears unlikely to fade as a subject of tabloid obsession, especially after reports surfaced in the Sun newspaper claiming that while he was in Africa, Harry met up with his former girlfriend Chelsy Davy, and the two are now “openly discussing giving their relationship another go”.
Sources have long told the Royalist that Harry and Chelsy have continued to hold a candle for each other.
Chelsy, a Zimbabwean by birth, split up with her boyfriend, jeweler Charles Goode, in January. Chelsy and Harry have long been thought by many of their friends to be made for each other—they were both known for their love of wild partying when they dated between 2004 and 2010. It was widely rumored at the time that they had planned to marry, but that Chelsy took fright at the prospect of living in the royal goldfish bowl following the wedding of William and Kate.
A reunion would be welcomed by many of their set, but—if it does happen—any revived relationship would be conducted with the utmost clandestine secrecy. Only a handful of Harry’s closest friends would be let in on the secret. (The Daily Beast)
It’s no secret that I, too, have held a candle for this pair. I think they were a lovely match and that Chelsy is the independent, spunky type of gal the Royal Family certainly needs. I’m not sure if the reports are true, but I do think it’d be wonderful if they were.
It’s unfortunate that one unflattering photo can cause some people to run rampant with pregnancy rumors. BUNTE.de did just that yesterday after Crown princess Mette-Marit was snapped in a less than stunning photo (above) on Friday while presenting a 2014 Talent Award.
Do I think she’s pregnant, though? No. I think we all can point to a picture of ourselves we have untagged or deleted for being less than flattering. Unfortunately, Crown Princesses don’t get the chance to scrub their Facebook’s like we do.
And let’s be honest, BUNTE is always claiming somebody is pregnant. It’s beginning to be a bit “the tabloid who cried preggers” around that site…
Since last November, rumors of a separation have been swirling around the Crown Princely couple of Norway. While the couple was pictured together in Haakon’s official birthday photographs, there weren’t any featuring just the pair.
Since then, Mette-Marit has rarely been seen.
Most notably as of late, she was absent from the memorial service for the victims of the Utøya massacre in 2011. (One of the victims was her step brother.)
I also checked last night and realized she hasn’t updated her twitter since mid-June. Which is strange, seeing as how she usually updated multiple times a day.
I truly hope this is all speculation… but I fear the gossip may be onto something. I’m still rooting for them, though!
