That is an understatement! Putting aside the matter of whether the Queen would ever give Harry her consent to such a marriage (under the Royal Marriages Act), it seems highly unlikely the Government would grant approval, given Harry's place in the line of succession.

I am afraid Harry would be forced to renounce his royal titles and place in the succession to marry this girl. I highly doubt he would ever do so, although given the wealth he inherited from his mother and grandfather, the Earl Spencer, he certainly would have the means to live on his own as Lord Harry Mountbatten-Windsor.

Chelsy flying in for a holiday with her Harry Saturday, 25 June 2005




PRINCE HARRY has signalled his determination to ignore controversy about his long-distance love, Chelsy Davy, by inviting her to England for a three-week holiday.

The 19-year-old blonde is flying to London from her home in South Africa for a reunion with her prince tomorrow, when he has a rare day off from Sandhurst.

Last week a Mail investigation revealed the extent of links between Chelsy's Zimbabwean father and despot Robert Mugabe's brutal regime.

Multi-millionaire safari operator Charles Davy, whose company charges £5,500 to kill an elephant, is a close business partner of Mugabe henchman Webster Shamu and has been accused of profiting out of the misery of other white Zimbabweans.

But although 20-year-old Harry is aware of the concern surrounding the relationship, he is determined that nothing will come between him and his girlfriend. Chelsy's trip to England will be the first time the two have seen each other since they holidayed in Botswana at the end of April, shortly before Harry joined the Royal Military Academy.

When they parted, the young couple vowed to keep their year-long relationship going despite the 6,000 miles between them. Chelsy will spend almost three weeks in England, giving the couple a number of opportunities to be together, despite Harry's gruelling college schedule.

For the last few days he and fellow first-term cadets from Alamein Company have been on exercise in the Black Mountains.

Dubbed operation Long Reach, the young soldiers are deprived of sleep and forced to march for miles through the tough terrain in order to test their stamina.

Next week, however, cadets have their second Academy Weekend - when they leave the college at lunch-time and do not have to return until midnight on Sunday - and, according to friends, the prince has promised his girlfriend that they will spend every minute together.

An economics and commerce student at Cape Town University, Chelsy has herself been studying hard for important mid-year exams. She finished her last test on Thursday morning and spent the afternoon shopping in preparation for her trip, buying Harry several gifts.

The fact that Harry has asked Chelsy over at the first possible opportunity is a sign of how serious the relationship has become, despite concern about her family background.

Some had predicted that Harry's stint in the Army would drive a wedge between them, but according to friends this couldn't be further from the truth - so far at least.

'Like a lot of lads who have played the field and then fallen in love for the first time, this relationship has hit Harry hard,' said a well-placed source.

'Chelsy is a lovely girl. Like Harry she really loves to party but she also has a very sensitive streak and he has really been able to open up to her for the first time.

'He feels very strongly that she shouldn't be made to pay for the sins of her father.'

Although she was born and brought up in Zimbabwe, Miss Davy was educated privately in England during her teens and still has many friends here.

She will be staying with some of them during part of her visit but may also be invited to Highgrove with Harry while he is home from Sandhurst. Prince Charles has already given his younger son's budding romance his seal of approval.

Prince Charles has allowed Harry to invite Chelsy for dinner at Highgrove in the past and he is OK with Harry dating her. Marrying her is quite another matter and is not on the table for discussion at this time.

Rumor has it the Queen is extremely displeased with Prince Charles for allowing the relationship to continue and feels he is too indulgent with Harry in general.

The Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst received new Colours this year. Military colours refers to the standards (flags) of the various organisations in the military, and this year the RMAS received a new one. It was presented by the Chief of the Defence Staff, representing the Queen, who was ill.

OK, before we get off on a prolonged hate session about her looks, let's sheathe the claws, please.

Thanks

Sometimes, it's ridiculous how cruel people can be. Like with Camilla- people always attack her looks and her physical features. Camilla is not an ugly woman. She's almost 60 years old and I think she's quite attractive. Chelsy isn't ugly either. She's an extremely attractive young woman. Now, I tend to think that people who hasten to insults have much insecurity in themselves. I would encourage those who made hurtful comments on this thread to look to themselves before simply rushing to insult others.

Yes, well, criticising other posters probably isn't going to help matters. Maybe we could get back on topic now?

is it to early to think that Harry's gonna marry Chelsy? He's only 21, and they've been dating for like a year.

I would agree with that. I hardly think Harry's going to marry soon, and, aside from that, I don't think the Queen and those around her would permit him to marry a girl whose family is incahoots with one of Africa's most infamous dictators.

Eton waits for verdict in Harry 'cheating' case Saturday, 25 June 2005
It reads like a Tom Sharpe novel. The petty politics of a public school staffroom spill over with riotous results.

Pretty soon the name of a member of the royal family is besmirched, the Secretary of State for Education is dragged into the row and a succession of comically named masters attempt to extricate their school from the ensuing imbroglio with varying degrees of success.

Unfortunately for the world's most famous public school, the tragi-comic vignettes that emerge from the reams of witness statements submitted before an employment tribunal - case number 2702463/2003 - are not the product of a writer with an eye for the absurd.

The statements tell how Sarah Forsyth, a junior art teacher at Eton College, ended up taping Prince Harry as he apparently conceded he had cheated in an AS-level exam. They form a gripping narrative at the heart of her claim for unfair dismissal, which is denied by Eton. The verdict is expected within the next fortnight.

For Eton, alma mater of the Duke of Wellington and no fewer than 18 other Prime Ministers, including Walpole and Pitt the Elder, not to mention alumni ranging from George Orwell and John Maynard Keynes to Sir James Goldsmith and Jonathan Aitken, Forsyth's claims make for uncomfortable reading.

Page after page of her witness statements, revealed here in full for the first time, shine a light on the cloistered world of the 565-year-old institution. It is a world dogged by claims of bullying of junior staff, where Eton's hierarchy is accused of closing ranks to defend the school's gilt-edged reputation, one that allows it to charge more than £22,000 a year in fees.

Four years ago, the school was forced to introduce random drug tests after a series of scandals made for lurid headlines in the press.

In 2003, the Office of Fair Trading began an investigation, one that is continuing, into allegations that Eton and Winchester were conspiring in a fee-fixing cartel. The two schools deny they have broken the law and decline to comment on reports they have attempted to secure a 'supergrass' deal with the OFT in which they will receive immunity from fines in return for assisting the watchdog's inquiry.

The chances are that Eton might have been able to prevent Forsyth's allegations from breaking into the open if she had felt her claims had been properly examined by the college.

But, in evidence submitted to the tribunal by Forsyth's legal team, Eton stands accused of adopting a 'gentleman amateur' approach when it came to investigating her claims. Forsyth's lawyers say that the school's alleged decision to repeatedly 'ignore policies and human resources advice was completely unacceptable ... We submit that she would not have been bullied ... if she had not been a woman.'

Eton insists it has acted properly at all times but the claims have damaged the college. The school has done much in recent years to counter its image as an archaic bastion of upper class machismo. It has allowed TV cameras in to film life in the college and has played an active role in reaching out to the wider community. Diversity is positively encouraged, although the school's size - it boasts nearly 1,300 pupils - has always meant it has enjoyed a heterogeneous composition.

'In my time we had everyone from the Crown Prince of Nepal, who was famous for being the only pupil allowed to wear a moustache, and, more recently, for gunning down his entire family, to the school socialist,' recalls one old Etonian who left in the early 1990s, at a time when the college still provided students with a coal ration to heat their rooms.

More recently, Eton has forged links with schools in deprived areas and works at being seen to be a progressive, modern institution. The findings of a recent inspection, raising concerns about saucy posters in dormitories, was, if anything, a sign of how it had metamorphosed.

Forsyth's tribunal hearing has gone some way to testing how much the school has really evolved. It has been seen as a battle between an outsider and an Eton establishment that wields considerable power extending way beyond its Berkshire walls. Not for nothing is the Old Etonian Association dubbed one of the 'world's best trade unions', for the way it looks after its own.

At the heart of Forsyth's case is her prickly relationship with her head of department, Ian Burke, who had taught at Eton in the 1980s only to leave after an incident in London. Burke had gone to the aid of a pupil who had been admitted to hospital with alcohol poisoning. It ended up in a row with a nurse and a police officer.

The matter found its way back to the school's then headmaster, Eric Anderson, and Burke resigned shortly afterwards.

But following a 15-year absence Burke returned to Eton in 2001 as head of the drawing schools, as Eton's art department is called. He arrived at an opportune time. The art department had just benefited from a £3.5 million cash injection, the result of an increasing number of pupils opting to study the subject.

According to the statements filed at the tribunal, Forsyth claimed her abilities were questioned by Burke, whom she says accused her of favouritism towards certain students and excluded her from several meetings. Burke denies these claims.

The relationship between the two deteriorated in the following months. Then, in May 2002, Forsyth alleges, Burke told her to write some text to accompany images prepared by Prince Harry for his AS-level art project. Later that evening, Forsyth says that she saw Burke and Harry sitting side-by-side cutting the text out and attaching it to the Prince's coursework. Burke denies the claim.

Forsyth claims Harry was not the only pupil who benefited from Burke's help. During one GCSE exam, he allegedly told a pupil to change the composition of a picture. The following year, Burke allegedly gave advice to boys on three separate occasions during their GCSE exams. Burke insists that no such thing happened.

What is clear is that by January 2003 Forsyth was profoundly unhappy. She claims she was was being ordered to work three weekends out of four and a 70-hour week. When she raised the matter Burke allegedly told her that she would not last five minutes in a state school and that he would 'get her', claims which he denies.

For Eton the bullying claims have a particularly unpleasant resonance. These days the school operates a zero tolerance policy when it comes to all forms of bullying. Gone are the days when prefects were able to beat junior pupils, something for which they were forced to appear grateful. The actor Jeremy Brett once recalled having to say 'thank you' after being beaten.

Such conditions made Eton the perfect incubator for generations of military top brass and those schooled in the dark arts. Without Eton, it is said, the secret services would not survive. 'I was taught Arabic by a beak who was trained by MI5 in a listening post in the Outer Hebrides,' recalls one old Etonian. 'There were ex-spooks everywhere.'

It is a parallel universe, far from the popular image of Eton as a quaint tourist trap, where masters are referred to as 'beaks' and new boys, bedecked in their distinctive uniforms, are universally known as 'tits'.

Indeed, for both masters and pupils alike, Eton is a tough learning curve. Former pupil Darius Guppy once declared that 'prison would be a lot like Eton' and another famous old boy, the comedian Hugh Laurie, said that his formative days at the school 25 miles west of London left him so repressed he was unable to cry when his mother died.

It is a sentiment that might have been echoed by Forsyth who, by May 2003, was becoming increasingly unhappy with the school's perceived lack of progress in investigating her complaints. Out of frustration, she says, she decided to record Harry's now infamous 'confession' - in which he apparently admits to writing only 'about a sentence' of the text - as a means of proving Burke's shortcomings. Harry is adamant that he did not cheat to obtain a pass in his exam.

Forsyth also wrote to Michael Proudfoot, a fellow of the college and a governor of Eton, who offered to intervene. 'He said that there was a lot of bullying by senior members of the staff,' Forsyth claims in her witness statement. Forsyth asked for her concerns to be passed on to the new headmaster, Anthony Little, to whom she also wrote saying she felt 'vulnerable' and 'isolated'.

The school called in another member of the teaching staff, the Reverend John Puddefoot, to assess Forsyth's teaching abilities. Puddefoot, a mathematician by training, suggested Forsyth should put more emphasis 'on explaining how to draw a right angle'.

Later Forsyth was to learn Puddefoot had concluded she was unsuited to teaching older boys. He described her as a 'zombie' and 'at best semi-articulate'. In June 2003, Eton wished Forsyth success in finding a position elsewhere.

Eton's headmaster, having attempted to keep the allegations of Harry's cheating within the school, had no choice but to inform Charles Clarke, the then Education Secretary, of Forsyth's actions. They were to spark a media furore when they emerged during the tribunal as Forsyth's lawyers attempted to paint Eton as a fusty, closeted institution that jettisoned her without following acceptable employment practices.

Eton told the tribunal that Forsyth simply wasn't up to the job and expressed concerns over her mental health, something that is understood to have deeply upset the junior art teacher.

CHELSY HITS CHELSEA
11PM: Prince's girl lands in UK 12.15AM: She's boozing at club
By Andy Lines
PRINCE Harry's girlfriend Chelsy Davy was partying in a trendy Chelsea nightclub barely an hour after flying into London.

The 19-year-old South African jumped into a taxi as soon as she had cleared customs at Heathrow.

She was so eager to meet up with friends, she even got changed into her clubbing gear on the way.

But Harry was nowhere to be seen. He was tucked up in bed at Sandhurst after yet another gruelling exercise.

Chelsy's flight from Cape Town landed just before 11pm on Saturday - but it had been delayed by four hours and she was clearly in a rush.

Dressed in an off the shoulder black blouse she grabbed a taxi and headed straight into town.

When she emerged at the K Bar, close to Chelsea's Stamford Bridge stadium, around an hour and a quarter later she was dressed in an orange boob tube with a snakeprint wrap.

One clubber said: "She got stuck into some vodka and seemed to have a really good time.

"It certainly didn't seem to matter that Prince Harry wasn't there.

"She was there for three hours or so and didn't leave until 3.30am. She was with some friends - two other girls and two boys."

Chelsy has not seen Harry since the end of April, when they were together on holiday in Botswana.

His Army training began soon after and she returned to her studies at university in South Africa.

But they have vowed to keep their year-long relationship going despite the 6,000 miles between them.

Harry spent last week in Wales on a series of exercises dubbed Operation Long Reach. The young soldiers were deprived of sleep and forced to march for miles through the tough terrain.

Unlike Chelsy, Harry was not allowed any alcohol.

He is now back at Sandhurst, however, and hopes to be reunited with Chelsy in the next few days.

She is expected to be in the UK for three weeks.

In recent days her dad, safari operator Charles Davy, has been fiercely criticised for his links with Robert Mugabe's regime in Zimbabwe.

Davy owns a stake in one of Africa's biggest private game reserves and is in business with Webster Shamu, a senior Zimbabwean government minister.

But the 53-year-old has hit back, saying: "I'm in business, not politics."

Chelsy, the party animal

by SINEAD MCINTYRE and REBECCA ENGLISH, Daily Mail 08:49am 27th June 2005

It's no secret that Prince Harry likes to party. And it seems he has picked a girlfriend after his own heart.



Chelsy Davy arrived in London at 11pm on Saturday and immediately hit the town after an 11-hour flight from South Africa which had been delayed by four hours.

Without even stopping to drop off her bags, the 19-year-old blonde headed straight to the exclusive K Bar in Chelsea - even changing her top in the back of a taxi.

Look here too...
