Prince Harry had concerns about Queen Elizabeth II’s opinions on Chelsy Davy.
In his memoir ‘Spare’, the Duke of Sussex notes how he loved his ex-girlfriend’s free-spirit, but was also afraid of her acceptability into the family.
He began: “I cherished Chels’s carefree and authentic spirit. She never worried about what other people thought. She wore short skirts and high boots, danced with abandon, drank as much tequila as I did, and I cherished all those things about her…but I couldn’t help worrying how Granny might feel about them.”
Harry added: “Or the British public. And the last thing I wanted was for Chels to change to accommodate them. I wanted so badly to be a husband, a father…but I just wasn’t sure.”
Harry and Chelsy brokeup in 2010.
