A gloomy night out for prince Harry and girlfriend Chelsy Davy
(news.sawf.org) - A pleasurable night out ended in gloom for Prince Harry and his girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The couple were enjoying themselves at London club Amika on Oct 26, but fellow guests revealed that Chelsy looked extremely sad and teary-eyed when they left.
The 23-year-old royal, who ran up a whopping 3,500 pounds bar bill, even sat beside their driver as they headed home - leaving Chelsy alone in the back of the car.
Friends say that the 21-year-old Chelsy, who is taking a two-year postgraduate degree in politics at Leeds University, is intolerably homesick and pining for her family and friends in Cape Town, South Africa.
The business studies graduate, who has been dating Harry for three years, is said to be so miserable in Leeds that she has returned to London to see her boyfriend most weekends since term began in September.
"Harry said he was treating Chelsy to a night out because she was down from Leeds. They turned up at about midnight and seemed to be having fun, but Chelsy wasn't her usual vibrant self," the Daily Mail quoted an eyewitness, as saying.
"She seemed really upset at one point and Harry started stroking her hand. Chelsy looked like she was almost in tears.
"Perhaps it was because Harry was with his friends and wasn't paying Chelsy enough attention. At one stage she seemed positively fed-up and said she wanted to leave. It was at about 2am, when Harry was well on his way. He insisted on staying.
"At one point he stood up to have a quiet word with Chelsy and gave her a kiss. When they did eventually leave at 3.30am, Chelsy looked thoroughly miserable. Harry was also pretty stony-faced when they were driven out of an underground car park in which the club has an entrance for VIPs," the eyewitness added.
According to friends, Chelsy is finding the transition to life in the UK a challenge.
"She keeps talking about how much she misses her gap year and all the amazing places she visited. She really misses all her friends and family in Cape Town and says that she had a great time when she was last there," a friend said.
"She's also finding the climate a bit of a culture shock and is pining for the sunshine. Leeds is quite a dreary place compared with Cape Town. She really wants to go back home and can't wait until Christmas," the friend added.
