Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s lives since leaving the Royal Family have been very public and somewhat explosive over the past couple of months. The fallout from their “truth” has seen criticism from both the UK and the US with critics accusing the Sussexes of trashing the Firm instead of doing what they said they would do which was to “have more privacy”. Aside from the fallout, the Sussexes have also had a lot to be happy about. They celebrated their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s second birthday on May 6, celebrated three years of marriage on May 19, and welcomed their second child, a daughter called Lilibet Diana on June 4.
Before Meghan gave birth to Lilibet she joined Harry in sitting down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss her reasons for leaving the Royal Family.
She told Oprah that she felt “suicidal” and that her pleas “for help” were “ignored by Palace staff”.
Meghan and Harry also accused a member of the Firm of racism and although they would not publicly name the person, they clarified that it was not the Queen or Prince Philip.
The Duchess also felt that the Firm failed to protect her from the negative press in the media.
Meghan indicated that she “wanted the Palace to tell the truth” after a story emerged suggesting Kate, Duchess of Cambridge had cried after an incident with Princess Charlotte’s dress before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding.
This is not the first time Harry’s girlfriends have complained about being in the spotlight.
In the documentary, ‘Prince Charles & Harry: Father and Son Divided’ royal commentator Julie Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke believed that Chelsy Davy, Harry’s ex-girlfriend “absolutely didn’t want to be in the public eye” following her break-up with the Duke of Sussex.
Ms Montagu said: “Harry had two big relationships before Meghan so Chelsy Davy and of course Cressida Bonas.
“Chelsy was like ‘absolutely not. I don’t want to be in the public eye, I don’t want to be written about in the papers,’ and the same thing with Cressida.
“We know that both girls ended that relationship because they did not want that public life of being married into the Royal Family.”
Chelsy is the daughter of Beverly Holland who won the ‘Miss Rhodesia’ title in 1973.
Her billionaire father, Charles Davy is a South African farmer who also owns a game reserve in Zimbabwe.

Harry and Chelsy met in Cheltenham and began dating when he took a gap year in Cape Town, South Africa.
When the relationship ended Chelsy said that being chased by photographers eventually became too much.
When asked about her relationship and the media, Chelsy described it as being “full on, crazy, scary and uncomfortable”.
She then explained that when her situation became “bad” she found it “difficult to cope”.
After the relationship, Chelsy moved back to Zimbabwe and continued to live a “peaceful life”.
In the Amazon Prime documentary ‘William and Kate into the Future,’ author and reporter Richard Kay said that despite Chelsy and Harry’s “volatile relationship,” it still had “passion” and “sparks flying everywhere”.
Speaking before they broke up, he said: “It is a real love match.
“The passion is there, the tension is visible, there is electricity and sparks flying everywhere.
“You can tell that they have a very volatile relationship, horrendous shouting matches, screaming rows but then, they get back together again and I would say out of all of the royal romances going on theirs’ was the real true thing.
“It is the real deal and I suspect that unless something catastrophic happens they will marry – but it will be a very tempestuous marriage.”
Chelsy attended Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding in 2018 and is said to still be on good terms with him.
She now owns Aya – a jewellery collection that was inspired by her love of Africa.
