Well, she was only 22. We've all been there...at least I have.

And if she hasn't stopped, she fit right in with the Brits.

Nail on the head. They were two of a kind back then, except I think Chelsy was the more mature even then in the midst of it all.

I'm inclined to agree with AfricanAussie: it's not the girl who needed to mature, it was 'the boy'. If Harry has learned how to tend his lady and be faithful, then maybe Chelsy can be won over. We'll see.

Marge asked for verified examples of Chelsy's immature behaviour, not Harry's! If we are looking at Harry's we have an encyclopaedia full! (I say that as a fan of Harry's.)

My niece followed Harry since 2003 through to last year when she got engaged and busy. Shr followed every nuance, every move in the Harry/Chelsy romance and loved them both. They were quite a wild couple as far as clubs and alcohol were concerned in those early years, but we don't hear much of Chelsy now.

Still don't think they are going to renew their romance.

Chelsy Davy's drunken carry

You wouldn't see that at Royal Ascot! Chelsy Davy has a hoot as dozens of men run naked at bizarre race meeting | Daily Mail Online

The Times of South Africa had an article about it at the time, under the headline 'Chelsy goes Godiva at the July races' but the online article has gone now.

Thank you for answering for me. I could give many examples of immaturity and childishness of Chelsy. She seems to have nothing in the head, very futile. Harry needs a more mature woman and centered on your side, responsible. Another thing, I heard that the father of Chelsy finances and makes money from hunting and killing of animals in Africa, how can Harry back to her, if he is determined to stop this?

According to wikipedia:

Charles Davy, a South African safari farmer.

Charles is one of the largest private landowners in Zimbabwe, and is reported to own 1,200 km² (460 mi²) of land.

Not sure what a safari farmer is...or if he still does that but that's what wikipedia says.

I didn't invent anything! I read several comments from people who said that her father is involved with the hunting and killing animals and that's how he enriched, search the net you will see. And why do you defend both Chelsy Davy, you know her?

I'm entitled to have my opinion and learn to respect the opinions of others is a matter of education

Just a curiosity: I know Chelsy was born in Zimbabwe and grew up in an English-speaking family, but does anyone know if she can speak at least some Afrikaans ? I'm asking that because I assume she went to school in South Africa where even English schools normally teach Afrikaans as first additional language.

She may speak some Afrikaans or a local language. I don't know. However, Chelsy and her brother Sean were sent away to boarding school in England when they were quite young and stayed there, with the exception of holidays, of course. Chelsy was educated at a private girls school in Bulawayo, then at Cheltenham Ladies College and Stowe (a prestigious public school as the private schools are known as in Britain) in England until her University of Capetown years.

Mr Davy's business activities have been somewhat controversial over the years and he had a warm relationship with Mugabe government ministers that helped these. The Davys don't live in Zimbabwe any more. They are in Zambia. Charles Davy has organised safaris similar to the Cecil the lion one for many decades, though not so disastrously, thank heavens. (Chelsy went to the U.S. to promote these safaris once.) Charlie Davy also farms in Zambia, as he did in Zimbabwe..

As I said, the Davys moved from Zimbabwe after British newspapers began taking an interest in Charles Davy's business activities and a business partnership with a Zimbabwen government minister. He objected and threatened to sue but didn't do so.

Why wouldn't this be a good opportunity to use his upcoming birthday to write more about the reunion

OK Cat, when I asked for a verified example I naturally thought we were talking about now.

Your response was surprising because when you are 22 you can do some pretty daft things. However, she is 29 and that's a whole new ball of wax. As of now she is a well-educated woman earning a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Cape Town in 2006, and a law degree (LLB) from Leeds University in 2009. So, I imagine she has quite a lot in the head. To be fair, Harry, who she once dated was also daft at 22. They are both not the same as they were when they were 22 or 25 even. We all change and mature and hopefully manage to maintain our sense of humour and I see nothing to make me think otherwise.

As to Chelsy's father, well you can pick your friends but not your relatives. Queen Maxima's father was cordially not invited to her wedding, but the point is, there was a wedding regardless of who or what her father is and was.

Not saying the Harry/Chelsy deal is on again although she did make him laugh and smile a lot.

I agree that the difference between 22 and 29 is enormous. At 22 you are really barely out of your teens. By 29 you are who you will be.

Chelsy got sloshed quite a bit more after the age of 22, (with and without Harry) and it was reported on. To be fair, though, that was and is standard behaviour in the London clubs they went to.

Harry hasn't been seen falling out of clubs in the past few years either, so he has also grown up.

There seems to be an implication that Harry is as thick as a plank, while Chelsy is a near-genius because she holds a law degree. She is no longer practising law, by the way.

There are plenty of not so smart lawyers around (I was married to one!) Harry graduated from Sandhurst and learned to fly Apache helicopters. So he's no slouch!

Oh I totally agree. I never subscribed to the "Harry's as thick as a plank" brigade. I don't think he liked school much but when he got his chance at Sandhurst it was obvious that he was not thick at all, although many still believe he didn't earn his spot and someone else flew the Apache because Harry is too thick to grasp the concept.

They also said Chelsy ended their relationship because he was too shallow. Such people live in that time and judge him just as they do Chelsy. Falling out of Clubs and into taxis. Now, since Chelsy has degrees people say she's too bright for him . . . go figure.

I think she "grew up a bit earlier than Harry, although that could be just because we saw more of Harry after their break up.

I wonder if those who call him dumb are doing so to make William look more intelligent.

I find Henry is more articulate thank his brother. It is that William responds better in the academic world. That system does not suit all and IMO is not an indication of anyone's level of intelligence.

Like Henry, Chelsy seems to be a party girl. An intelligent party girl. After all, she was smart enough to dump Henry when he wasn't up to the grade.
