Chelsy Davy, best known as Prince Harry’s on-and-off girlfriend, has a new interview in Town & Country. Chelsy was never all about using her royal connections to get media attention or anything else, but she’s been more friendly to media outlets recently. She already comes from a wealthy family, and she seems too self-possessed and un-precious to want that kind of fishbowl existence of being famous for dating a prince. After she graduated from law school, Chelsy worked for a few years in London, but she returned back to her homeland in Africa to start her own business. The business is called Aya Africa, and it’s all about non-conflict jewelry. The proceeds from the jewelry sales will go towards children’s education in Africa, so Chelsy claims, although that part seems rather vague right now. What I found interesting about this interview is that she answers some Prince Harry-related questions directly. Here’s that part:
It’s not hard to see why the Prince fell for this clever, confident, go-getting blonde. Davy describes herself as “quite fearless, growing up in Africa will do that to you, I think.” She must be, I saw, to contemplate dating a Windsor. “Yeah, sure,” she agrees with a reluctant giggle. The latest gossip-magazine rumors suggest the two are an item again, but though Davy confirms they’re still on friendly terms, she says she is single. “I’m quite busy at the moment and I do move around quite a bit,” she explains, wryly.
So, no regrets that she’s not a princess? “Oh, goodness! No, I’m very happy with that I’m doing right now,” she says fervently. “I’m very sure of who I am and what I want out of life.”

Huh. I guess I believe her. Mostly because I believe that if Chelsy wanted to be with Harry right now, they would be together right now. If she called him today and told him that they should be together, Harry would fall in line, I suspect. But I do think it’s interesting that when she’s asked if she has regrets about not being a princess, her immediate reaction is to think “I’m very sure of who I am and what I want out of life.” Meaning, she’s always known that she doesn’t want to be a princess. Meaning, she was never going to waity around for years.
