After first meeting while she was a teenager at Cheltenham and then getting together during Harry’s gap year in Cape Town, Davy returned to the UK to study in Leeds and be closer to the young royal.

She has spoken of their time together – and the subsequent media interest – as ‘crazy and scary and uncomfortable’.

The pair broke up in 2010 after a seven-year romance, but Chelsy was still Harry’s date for William and Kate’s wedding in 2011.

Their relationship has been strictly platonic ever since, bar a fling in South Africa in 2015 and she previously said they would always be friends.
