Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy arrive for royal wedding

Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriends Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas have been spotted arriving at for his wedding to Meghan Markle this morning.

The Ms Davy, 32, who had an on-off relationship with the Prince between 2004 and 2011, and Ms Bonas, 28, are among the guests arriving for the ceremony at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor.

It was rumoured that Prince Harry had left all of his former flames off the guest list for the after party at Frogmore House,  but it appears Ms Davy and Ms Bonas received invites to the service.

The Prince and Ms Davy have remained friends after going their separate ways seven years ago and she has been a regular feature at royal functions.

Prince Harry is also said to have remained on friendly terms with Ms Bonas since their relationship ended in 2015.

An on-off relationship
Ms Davy and the Prince originally met in Cape Town, South Africa, while he was on his gap year and he was reported to have once described Zimbabwean-born lawyer-turned-designer as “the one”.

However Ms Davy did not enjoy the bright spotlight that came with being in a relationship with the then third-in-line to the throne and they eventually called it a day.

Ms Davy now divides her time between West London and Zimbabwe, where she runs her own luxury jewellery line, Aya.

She recently posted online telling Zimbabweans to “rise up” after the resignation of Robert Mugabe earlier this year.

Ms Davy is thought to be single again having split up with her boyfriend of two years, the jeweller Charles Goode.

Cressida Bonas
The 28-year-old actress dated Harry for three years between 2012 and 2015. It is thought that the pair were originally introduced through Princess Eugenie.

Cressida is said to have struggled with the scrutiny of her love life, and wanted to pursue her career as an actress.

She is on amicable terms with the Prince and she attended the Invictus Games after they split, but they are not particularly close.

Ms Bonas acting career has since bloomed as she played George Orwell’s wife on stage in London, and is soon to appear in the film Tulip Fever alongside Judi Dench. However she recently said it had been ‘incredibly frustrating’ to ‘be pigeonholed’.

After the Prince, she briefly dated Wolf Hall actor Ed Holcroft. More recently has been going out with her ‘other Harry’, 6’6” chartered surveyor and polo player Harry Wentworth-Stanley.

Other guests seen arriving at the chapel this morning include Oprah Winfrey, actor Idris Elba and Earl Spencer, the brother of Diana, Princess of Wales.
