Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, are Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends and they were today in attendance at the royal wedding on Saturday as he tied the knot to Meghan Markle.
Harry, now the Duke of Sussex, dated Davy, who is originally from Zimbabwe, from 2004 until 2010. She later said the two remain friends, though the media scrutiny and constant spot in the public eye became too much to bear.
“I found it tough… It’s not something you get used to,” she said in 2016. “That part was quite hectic, it’s not like that any more.”
At a moment during the wedding Davy was captured in a pose which seemed to be like “This could have been me”
Harry dated Bonas from 2012 until 2014, when they were rumored to have split for similar reasons.
Yet any relationship turmoil looked to be a thing of the past on Saturday. Both women were all smiles on their arrival and inside the church.
Bonas and Prince Harry were introduced in 2012 by Harry’s cousin Princess Beatrice, and the two split amicably in 2014, mostly due to Bonas’ aversion to the public scrutiny of being with Harry.
However, the royal wedding invite isn’t really all that surprising, because Prince Harry tends to be stay friendly with his exes, as they tend to run in the same social circles and share a lot of the same friends.
Davy showed up to the royal wedding in a beautiful deep blue knee-length dress with a capelet, topped with a matching fascinator.
She seemed to be in good spirits, laughing and smiling as she walked up with friends to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Bonas wore a pink striped ankle-length dress, paired with a lighter pink hat, which matched her heels.
Bonas attended the ceremony with Harry’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, instead of bringing her boyfriend. It is definitely certain the boyfriend wasn’t present at the royal wedding because he wasn’t invited.
