Vanity Fair: Emotional phone call between Prince Harry and his ex Chelsy before Royal wedding
Even though some of Harry’s most notorious former girlfriends were reportedly seen in the ceremony, neither Cressida Bonas nor Chelsy Davy, who had long relationships with the Prince, were invited to the reception.
32-year-old Davy, a businesswoman from Zimbabwe, had the longest-to-date romantic relationship with Harry, as the two had an on and off romance that spanned seven years.
Vanity Fair claims to have obtained information from a family friend who said that Davy and Harry had a tearful phone call a week before the wedding, in which the two did closure and made things clear.
‘It was their final call, a parting call in which they both acknowledged Harry was moving on. Chelsy was quite emotional about it all, she was in tears and almost didn’t go to the wedding,’ the news outlet quoted the source.
‘In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn’t try and gatecrash the party,’ added the insider. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
Although she reportedly almost didn’t go to the ceremony, she finally seemed to gather the courage to be there, and she was affectionately greeted by Markle, who even broke royal etiquette giving Davy a hug.
While 600 hundred guests were in attendance at the royal wedding ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, only 200 were lucky enough to receive an invitation to the private evening reception.
Harry was allegedly advised to extend invitations for the ceremony to his ex-girlfriends. He politely welcomed them in the chapel, where he and Markle exchanged vows but left them out of the reception’s exclusive guest list.
29-year.old Cressida Bonas, an English actress and model with family links to the British Royalty who dated Harry from 2012 to 2014, wasn’t invited to the reception either.
Not only the exes were left without invitations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex post-wedding party. Many of Harry’s well-known friends were also left out of the big event.
Fortunately for those, a lot of them were reportedly invited to another wedding the same weekend, and hopefully they still had the opportunity to have some fun while wondering why they weren’t included in Harry’s guest list.
One of the few people that enjoyed the privilege of getting an invite to the reception was Harry and Markle’s cupid, 33-year-old Violet von Westenholz, but apparently, she couldn’t make it because she had a previous commitment.
Von Westenholz, a PR director for Ralph Lauren became an acquaintance with Markle when she organized a publicity day for Suits, the TV series on which the actress was part of the cast.
Being Harry’s friend since their teenage years, von Westenholz thought that Markle was the perfect match to the royal, and she set them for a blind date. One month later, they were dating.
Even though she was responsible for the historical wedding, von Westenholz was seen at the wedding of Ed Watson, a mutual friend of hers and Harry, who tied the know with Cara-Louise Pratt the same evening.
The public and the media don’t seem to be done yet with the much-expected wedding, and seemingly endless details surrounding the event keep surfacing. It is hard to believe that a month has passed.
One of the things that still remain a mystery is the location of the newlyweds' honeymoon after Harry publicly debunked the most commonly accepted theory that the two spent it in Namibia.
When young Namibian philanthropist Marvin Elias asked the Duke and Duchess during a recent event if they had visited the country, Harry replied: ‘No, we didn't go to Namibia. I'm not going to say where.’
Since their engagement and wedding have been scrutinized to the slightest detail, it seems that they are trying as hard as they can to keep something about their romance to themselves.
