Despite weekend reports, Britain’s Prince Harry and longtime girlfriend Chelsy Davy haven't split, a source tells UsMagazine.com.
News of the World reported that Davy, 24, dumped the 25-year-old Prince, a second lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry, and is returning to her family in Zambia to start a legal career.
"They have not split up — News of the World jumped the gun," a source tells Us. "Harry knew for some while that Chelsy will be moving back to Zambia. There is no getting around that right now. What the newspaper failed to point out is that Harry's [Apache Attack Helicopter] conversion course begins next month, that continues for eight months, and there is a further eight months at the RAF Wattisham base [in Suffolk, England]. They would not have been together much even if she was staying in the UK."
Though their time apart could cause some strain on the relationship, "they'll try to make it work because they are committed to each other still," the sources tells Us. "Both have careers to think about, and it would be crazy for either to make sacrifices at this age."
A Clarence House spokesperson tells Us: "We do not comment on Prince Harry's private life."
The two split in 2007 but got back together a year later.
