Is Prince Harry's Ex To Blame For His Breakup With Cressida Bonas?
Single young women everywhere are rejoicing that Prince Harry is back on the market after word leaked this week of his split from girlfriend-of-two-years Cressida Bonas.
Just weeks ago, the two were loving it up publicly, spurring rumors that an engagement might be imminent. Now, one source claims the 24-year-old blonde beauty was just “too needy” for the 29-year-old free-spirited royal, as reported by PEOPLE Magazine. Perhaps Bonas wasn’t ready to give up on her dancing ambitions for a highly-publicized life in Buckingham Palace quite yet. Or maybe Harry’s romantic past proved too much for the young student to handle?

Before the doomed romance between Harry and Bonas, the prince was involved with another blonde. According to the Daily Mail, Harry dated Zimbabwe-born socialite and lawyer Chelsy Davy, who allegedly split with him in 2009 after “seven turbulent years.” The UK-based news site adds Davy ended the relationship because the constant spotlight was the “last thing she wanted.” On the other hand, she probably just became tired of his drunk-dialing, the transscripts of which were read aloud in court during a phone hacking trial in London earlier this year.
However, there may have been more to this particular breakup. In 2009, The Telegraph revealed Harry wanted to focus on his helicopter pilot training with the Army Air Corps, prompting Davy to grow frustrated over their time apart.
But was Harry ever really over her?

“Harry’s friends say he has never quite got over Davy, and the pair remains closely linked through their tight circle of friends,” says the Daily Mail. The site also points out that one of their mutual friends include London nightclub owner Guy Pelly, who’s getting married this weekend in Memphis, Tennessee, an event Prince Harry is reportedly attending with older brother Prince William.
Does this mean Harry and Davy will resume their relationship? Not so fast.
E! Online points out that the now 28-year-old Davy is settling down with 30-year-old society jeweler Charles Goode and could soon be “off the market” for good.
