Running into an ex-girlfriend might feel a little awkward, but today Prince Harry will encounter no fewer than three former flames, including Chelsy Davy, at his cousin's wedding.

Zimbabwe-born jewellery designer Chelsy, 32, looked in great spirits as she arrived for Eugenie's wedding at St George's Chapel today, looking elegant in a navy dress with lace panels.

She laughed as she held on to her hat, battling a stiff autumnal breeze as she made her way inside the church.

Chelsy Davy dated the prince from 2003 to 2010 and has always been good pals with Eugenie, mingling in the same society circles in London.

She's also remained on good terms with Prince Harry and attended his wedding to Meghan at St George's Chapel in May alongside another ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas who is also on today's guest list alongside former flame, Ellie Goudling.

Cressida is close to both Beatrice and Eugenie who set her up with their cousin during a skiing trip in 2012, and the pair went on to date for two years.

CRESSIDA BONAS

Cressida is the daughter of renowned Sixties It girl Lady Mary Gaye Curzon (whose father was the 6th Earl Howe) and Old Harrovian Jeffrey Bonas and is close friends with Beatrice and Eugenie.

However, Cressida and Harry split in 2014 after two years of dating

The break-up was believed to have caused by Cressida's struggle to handle the public scrutiny that came with the two-year relationship, and her desire to pursue her acting career.

She's regularly spotted out on the town with Beatrice and Eugenie at society parties.

Former flames Harry and Cressida reportedly split as the budding actress wanted to pursue her career and struggled with the publicity surrounding their relationship

CHELSY DAVY

Such is the enduring friendship of 32-year-old Zimbabwe-born Chelsy Davy and Prince Harry that she secured an invite to the big day, despite being regarded as 'the one who got away'.

After first meeting while she was a teenager at Cheltenham and then getting together during Harry's gap year in Cape Town, Davy returned to the UK to study in Leeds and be closer to the young royal.

She has spoken of their time together – and the subsequent media interest – as 'crazy and scary and uncomfortable'.

The pair broke up in 2010 after a seven-year romance, but Chelsy was still Harry's date for William and Kate's wedding in 2011.

Their relationship has been strictly platonic ever since, bar a fling in South Africa in 2015 and she previously said they would always be friends.

ELLIE GOULDING

She famously performed at the Duke and Duchess's 2011 wedding, and Ellie is a close friend of Eugenie, Beatrice and Prince Harry.

Eugenie, Jack and Ellie were recently spotted together taking in the Brooklyn Nets Vs New York Knicks game at Madison Square Gardens.

The singer has been seen at events with the royals before such as the The UK’s first ever We Day in London in 2014.

And she's even joined the York girls and Fergie for one of their cosy mother-daughter dinners in London after the trio attended one of her gigs.

The blonder singer and Prince Harry enjoyed a short lived romance back in 2016, after years of texting back and forth.

Blushing Ellie skirted the issue of romance in October 2016 when she was asked outright about the rumours on TV, by The Project host Carrie Bickmore.

'Please don't let me go red. I'm bright red,' she said. 'Why did I have a feeling that was going to come up? You naughty people.'

Ellie was believed to have been quite 'taken' by Prince Harry when she invited him to perform at the closing ceremony for the inaugural Invictus Games in 2014.

Two years later, onlookers at the Audi Polo Challenge 2016 claimed that they had even been 'kissing' under a blanket during a post-polo event.

While the romance didn't go anywhere, Ellie and Harry are said to have stayed 'good friends' thanks to moving in the same circles for years.
