A royal nightmare! Six years after they broke up, Chelsy Davy is explaining what it was like to date Prince Harry. Spoiler alert: Insane. The Zimbabwe-born stunner dated Harry on and off for six years, and evidently it got to a point where she literally could not take the out-of-control media scrutiny for another minute. Kind of makes you look at royal girlfriends in a whole new light.

Davy, who recently launched a jewelry line, told the Times (UK), "It was so full-on: crazy and scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn't cope." She added, "I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible."

After Davy and Prince Harry broke up in 2010, Davy admit to hiding out in Zimbabwe to process the breakup away from the cameras and constant magazine articles. "It was nuts," she said. "That's also why I wanted to go back to Africa. Now it's calm, it's fine." Davy, who still attends royal parties, also admitted that she and the prince are still close to this day. "I think we will always be good friends," she said. 

Man, respect to anyone who dates a royal. Prince Harry of course is one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, but there's certainly a price to pay for anyone who gets involved with him: She will be under constant media scrutiny. (Just ask Kate Middleton to reflect back on her days of dating William!)

It's nice to hear that despite their difficult relationship, Prince Harry and his ex still remain close. It goes to show what a stand-up guy he is -- and it probably has also shown Davy to never date someone famous again.
