The most highly anticipated day of the year has finally come and gone. It seemed as though it took an eternity for the British royal wedding to arrive, but mere seconds for it to flash past us. Millions of individuals gathered together worldwide to watch the great event unfold.
Some watched out of sheer excitement to see Princess Diana’s second child wed the love of his life, while others watched in hopes of seeing some grand drama unfold. Regardless of the reason, this wedding garnered over 29 million views in the United States alone!
Despite the great unveiling of pre-wedding family drama from the Markle clan, the day itself went off without a hitch. The bride, Meghan Markle, looked as graceful and elegant as ever before. Her true colors finally got to show through as she got the biggest moment in the limelight thus far.
Prince Harry was undoubtedly overcome with emotion to reach the realization that he was finally marrying the love of his life. He’s got quite a track record of a love life, and his former lifestyle made many often question if he would ever settle down and marry.
All it took was a meeting with the stunning American actress to change the path of his life completely. Now, he and his bride share the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex and are ready to take on whatever life may throw their way.
Though Meghan was certainly not his first love, she was his final. Amid the flurry of excitement and drama that surrounded the wedding, there were a few lesser known details that have finally made their way into the public. Some are a bit more startling than others.
Mere hours before the wedding, Prince Harry was caught on an emotional and teary phone call with his former longtime girlfriend, Chelsy Davy. Chelsy was Harry’s most serious girlfriend before Meghan came along, and many just knew they would end up marrying eventually.
Their relationship lasted for around seven years, on and off. It was evident to many that they were head over heels in love, and were surprised that they eventually decided to call it quits for good. The reason for the final spit was the fact that Chelsy knew what kind of lifestyle accompanied being the wife of a Prince, and she knew she didn’t want the rest of her life to be broadcast to the public.
According to a close family source, “You sort of get the feeling that neither of them was quite ever willing to completely let go of that love affair. They’d carved their names into one of the tree trunks on the family estate. It was such a love affair, it really was. Right up until 2015, they were trying to give it another chance. I was quite struck by that, and I think everyone that’s been in love, you know, you never forget your first love, and in that respect, I think Prince Harry was no different. And I think what’s so lovely is he still manages to have a friendship with Chelsy, and there’s that amazing respect between the two of them. Neither of them has spoken about their relationship, and I think you have to respect and admire them for that.”
Before the wedding took place, both Harry and Chelsy knew what they had to do. They had one final phone call to give them both closure before this large chapter unfolded. A family friend divulged details of the conversation.
“It was their final call, a party 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. In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn’t try and gatecrash the party.”
This was the official close of the book between the two, and it appears as though Chelsy, despite her emotional conversation, knew that this was the way things would forever be. Prince Harry and Meghan do make a wonderful pair, and we’re thankful they’ve found love in the arms of one another. As for Chelsy, we hope she, too, finds a love that is all she could have dreamt of and more!
