Writing in royal biography ‘Harry: Conversations with the Prince’, journalist Angela Levin said: “A friend revealed that seeing the enormity and pomp of the day convinced Chelsy that she and Harry had been right to separate.
“Although they had a lot in common, she saw clearly that because they came from such different worlds it could never have worked, especially as she valued her privacy and guarded it so carefully.”
Despite the fact that Harry and Chelsy had split by the time of William and Kate’s nuptials, it was the Zimbabwean-born blonde who Harry urned to as he prepared for his best man speech ahead of the big day.
“Harry had read it out at first over the phone to Chelsy in South Africa, who despite no longer being his steady girlfriend, has also been invited to the wedding.
“She suggested he remove some of the racier anecdotes, including a reference to Kate’s ‘killer legs’, as she didn’t think the Queen would take kindly to laddish humour.”
