What Did Prince Harry Love About Chelsy Davy?

"I loved Chels’ ease, that she wasn’t complicated," he wrote in his book, Page Six reported. "She didn’t care what anyone thought. She wore miniskirts and high-heeled boots, danced however she wanted, drank tequila like me, and all of this made me really happy."

Prince Harry and Davy dated on and off from 2004 to 2011. When they were together, the paparazzi stalked Davy. Although he knew he really loved her, he "wasn't sure" if she was the one because she wasn't on board with his lifestyle being hounded by the press.

"The whole world isn’t made to put up with constant scrutiny, and I don’t know if Chels could bear it, and I couldn’t ask her to," Prince Harry shared.
