Prince Harry has a hard time interacting with any young women without the media assuming and speculating that the two are an item or thinking they must be engaging in a fling. This past year, the media has inaccurately linked Harry to Ellie Goulding as well as American aspiring actress Juliette Labelle. Both have been shut down as falsities, yet the Prince has made it clear that he now has a phobia when speaking with any woman for fear that he and the beauty may be labelled as a couple.
It’s Harry’s previous legitimate flames that are making news recently, seeing as Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy are reportedly now great friends. Bonas, a former dancer and aspiring actress, dated Harry on and off for roughly two years before the two parted ways in 2015. The beauty has continued to be successful by appearing in a Burberry campaign and booking a role in a Weinstein Company film while making appearances at society events to keep her status on the social scene in London.
Prince Harry’s previous girlfriend to Cressida, Chelsy Davy, whom he dated for seven years, has made her return to the public eye with a jewelry line launch following leaving her job. The blonde beauty spoke of her relationship currently with Harry and noted that they will “always be good friends,” as Vanity Fair shares.

As stated previously, the exes are making news due to hanging out regularly with one another. The former flames to Harry reportedly connected at the posh event held annually in Kensington Gardens, known as the Serpentine Summer party. The ladies were photographed looking very chummy in one another’s company, while at times they were seen “clasping hands.”
The publication notes the worries that the new relationship that has been sparked between the women may cause for Prince Harry, who still has a bond with each.
“The most recent story of theirs suggests that Davy and Bonas’s friendship is ‘Harry’s worst nightmare,’ implying his two exes—who have similar backgrounds, both having attended the same school—are bonding over their shared amorous past with the Cinnamon Prince. “They have become increasingly good friends because they have so much in common,” a mutual friend told the Daily Mail. “They love a party, the dance floor, and a giggle.” Meanwhile, a different friend told the outlet, ”I think their friendship will be a warm one. Because in the end there are very few people with whom one can discuss the unique experience of having been a royal girlfriend.'”
That is certainly a solid point. Cressida and Chelsy likely have a lot to share in regards to this. It’s been reported that each of the girls is in contact with Harry, usually via text, but it hasn’t been made known whether the Prince is feeling uneasy or accepting about the bond between his former girlfriends.

Perhaps the girls are planning a speaking tour based on the “what it’s like to date a royal” subject. Chelsy Davy certainly made it clear that she found it a very difficult role to take on. In an interview she gave to The Times, the now-jewelry designer shared that she found the role as the girlfriend to the Prince to be quite “scary.” People shares the beauty’s words.
“‘It was so full-on: crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope. [I was] just a normal kid,’ she says it was ‘tough’ to handle the scrutiny. ‘I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible.'”
Davy, however, lasted a full seven years on the arm of the Prince while Bonas seemed to be even less of a fan of the role. At least the ladies now have the stories and one another to share them with.
