Britain's Prince Harry's has split up with Chelsy Davy.

The Zimbabwean-born beauty has reportedly called time on their seven-year on/off relationship after realising she doesn't want to risk her independence by marrying into the royal family.

Even though Chelsy and Harry have very strong feelings for one another, Chelsy had to let him go. They've been together so long the next stage would be an engagement.

A friend of the pair said: "Even though Chelsy and Harry have very strong feelings for one another, Chelsy had to let him go. They've been together so long the next stage would be an engagement. "

While Chelsy was happy to attend the wedding of Harry's brother Prince William to Princess Catherine as his plus one on April 29, she is said to have made up her mind after seeing the amount of pressure put on the new Duchess of Cambridge.

The pal added to Grazia magazine: "They've discussed marriage but her mind was most definitely made up by Catherine and William's wedding, and so while she was happy to be his date on the big day, she's now told him they should see other people.

"It has been really hard for both of them and it wasn't a decision they took lightly."

The break-up comes soon after it was revealed that Chelsy has made summer plans without Harry, and is to go on a tour of Europe with her friend Melissa Percy.

Although Harry is "besotted" with the 25-year-old blonde he has finally been forced to accept that she doesn't want to sacrifice her independence for a royal life.

Another source said: "Harry is besotted with Chelsy. She is the love of his life, but Chelsy is adamant she doesn't want to lose her independence. So she had to end the relationship. Chelsy's been feeling this way for some time now, but her reluctance to commit has only seemed to make Harry keener. However, finally he's accepted her decision."

    i think harry should give her time to enjoy her independence until she's tired of it..if she really loves him, she will sacrifice anything..but it takes time..
