I really don't envy them or their significant others.
I believe that is pretty much why the Harry Chelsy relationship didn't work. So if she had to choose, she didn't pick Harry. I think the William Catherine wedding was the straw for her, she realized that Harry came w/ a lot of royal baggage. No small wedding, no life in Africa, just a lot of formality and answering to the British public.
So she picked herself.
I have to agree with you guys and Chelsy as well.
