Apparently dating one of the most handsome members of the royal family (sorry, Wills) isn't all crumpets and unicorns.
Chelsy Davy, who was courting Prince Harry for nearly seven years, described the experience as "scary." It had nothing to do with Harry, per se. He was surely the perfect gentleman. What Davy didn't care for was all the scrutiny that came with wooing someone in the (very) public eye.
Davy, who started dating Harry in 2004, after they met in Africa, explained, "I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible."
Duchess Kate, formerly of "Waity Katie" fame, can relate to the hardships of being on-again, off-again with a prince, but thankfully for those of us who can't get enough of George's cheeks, her relationship ended up working out in the end. Scholars say it may have had something to do with this dress:
When Davy and Harry split in 2010, she returned to Zimbabwe to escape the trolls. Now, she says her life is "calm" and believes that she and the world's most eligible bachelor will always be friends.
