It can’t be easy, can it, turning up to your ex’s wedding. Imagining what could have been and whatever else.
That’s got to be especially true if what could have been is a royal occasion. You becoming a princess. No, that can’t be easy at all.
But that was the hell that Chelsy Davy had to go through today, having previously dated future married-man (and the second most likely royal to be a lizard) Prince Harry.
Check out this footage of her ahead of the ceremony:

The pair of them dated on and off between 2004 and 2010, and apparently, they’re still good mates.
A source told W Magazine: “Harry has stayed good friends with Chelsy and [other ex] Cressida, so they will be there… He made sure there were no hard feelings when they split up. I don’t think Meghan will mind.”
But, obviously, people were quick to pick up on that look on her face:

The ceremony kicks off at midday, but details of the plans were released by Kensington Palace earlier today.
Meghan will walk part of the way down the aisle by herself and then be met by Prince Charles halfway.
Then, like Diana and Kate before her, Meghan has chosen not to say that she will “obey” her husband following their marriage.
Meghan and Marry will pledge themselves to each other, saying: “… for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part.”
Traditional words like “thee” and “thou” will be replaced with the clearly more modern word “you.”
The Archbishop of Canterbury will then address the 600 guests. He will say: “Will you, the families and friends of Harry and Meghan, support and uphold them in their marriage now and in the years to come?”
The guests will answer: “We will” and then Meghan and Harry will be married.
