PRINCE Harry’s Zimbabwean girlfriend Chelsy Davy has ended their relationship because Britain is too cold, it was reported today.
Clarence House would not comment on yesterday’s reports that Ms Davy had ended the three-year relationship with Harry after he missed her 22nd birthday party to go to the Rugby World Cup Final in Paris.
Ms Davy had also become sick of the prince’s playboy lifestyle and lack of commitment, the News of the World said.
Reports suggested Davy was heading back to Cape Town, South Africa, because she was unhappy in Leeds, where she started a law degree course in September.
The cold Yorkshire weather, safety fears and difficulty making friends were said to be making her unhappy.
She was also said to be missing her friends in Cape Town where she shared a flat with her brother Shaun.
Reports said she had told the prince she wanted space to think about her future.
The News of the World said the relationship ended in a series of emotional telephone calls between Leeds and Lesotho, where the prince is doing charity work.
In a separate report, the Mail on Sunday claimed Harry, a second lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry, was "ready to quit” the army unless he was sent to Afghanistan with his squadron.
In May, military top brass refused to send him to Iraq because of fears he could become a target for extremists.
The defence ministry was quoted as saying they never discussed Harry’s location or future deployments, while royal officials maintained he was committed to his army career.
The newspaper also carried a picture of him in a car with a "mystery brunette” he allegedly spent an hour chatting to in an upmarket west London nightclub on Friday night.
