He may have been about to marry the woman he loved who would later also become the mother of his first child, but that didn’t mean Prince Harry didn’t have one of his significant exes on his mind a few days before his wedding to Meghan Markle.

In a resurfaced report, days before wedding the future Duchess of Sussex in May 2018, Prince Harry actually shared a tearful and emotional phone call with his ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy. Royal author Katie Nicholl was the one to reveal the news, stating that the purpose was to acknowledge that he was truly moving on with his life.

“It was their final call, a parting call in which they both acknowledged Harry was moving on,” a source told Nicholl. “Chelsy was quite emotional about it all, she was in tears and almost didn’t go to the wedding. In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn’t try and gatecrash the party.”

While Davy and fellow ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas both did score invites to the church ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, the evening reception at Frogmore House was a different story. Neither of the two received any sort of invite to the event—nor did several of Prince Harry’s other friends.

“Some of Harry’s pals were a bit surprised not to get the golden ticket to the evening party,” a source told the author. “There was actually another wedding that weekend that a lot of them were invited to, so they got to have fun in any case.”

Among the friends absent from the reception were Astrid Harbourd, alleged matchmaker Violet von Westenholz, James Blunt or Natalie Pinkham.

The lack of friends at the reception was a theme that allegedly later recurred in the couple’s romance, as Markle allegedly was also planning to veto any friend picks Prince Harry put forward as potential godparents for their son, Archie Harrison.

While the identities of Archie’s godparents have never been released, it was stated a few days after his birth that both Harbourd and Tom Inskip had been given the ax when it came to the prestigious titles.
