Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, both former lady loves to Prince Harry, attended his wedding to Meghan Markle in Windsor Saturday.
Davy arrived wearing a navy dress, while Bonas went more colourful, donning a neon mix of pink, green and yellow. Both appeared to arrive accompanied by friends.

The prince first met Zimbabwean-born Davy in 2004 during boarding school, and the two dated on and off for several years before finally breaking off their relationship in 2010. However, the two run in the same social circle, and Davy even accompanied Harry as his date to the duke and duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011.
In 2012, Harry met English actress Cressida Bonas (the two were introduced by Princess Eugenie). They dated for a couple years, ultimately splitting in 2014. The split was amicable, and was reportedly due to the fact that Bonas couldn’t handle the public scrutiny that came with dating a prince.

Davy, who was a law student at the time, also struggled being under the spotlight. “It was so full-on: Crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope. I was young, I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible,” she told the Times.
Harry remained friendly with both, so it’s not surprising to see them both in attendance for the big day.Chelsy DavyCressida BonasMeghan MarklePrince HarryRoyal WeddingRoyals
