Chelsy Davy is secretly hoping for a reconciliation with Prince Harry at a bash this week for his charity.
But friends say she may be too late â€“ as he appears to have moved on and has been constantly texting Sky TV presenter Caroline Flack.
Chelsy, 23, is due to meet Harry at a party on Friday in aid of his Sentebale charity. And although she was photographed with new man Dan Philipson last weekend, she has told friends she is looking forward to seeing the Prince.
â€˜Chelsy canâ€™t wait for the party as she knows Harry will be there,â€™ says a Royal insider.
â€˜She is going with a group of girlfriends. Dan has not been invited and Chelsy is hoping to spend some quality time with Harry. It will be the first time they have caught up in a while.â€™
A friend added: “Chelsy has said Dan might be a rebound and she still cares a lot for Harry. She has confided that she wants him back but she gets the impression Harry has moved on.”
Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and her boyfriend Dave Clark, Harryâ€™s friend Astrid Harbord and Williamâ€™s chum Jamie Murray Wells are all expected at the party, where it is hoped they will raise Â£5,000.
Chelsy and Harry, 24, split up five months ago after dating for five years. Since then, they have kept in regular contact by text and email, and shortly after they broke up they spent several nights trying to rekindle their romance at the London home of Chelsyâ€™s friend Olivia Perry, nicknamed Bubble.
Of Chelsyâ€™s relationship with property boss Dan, the friend added: â€˜He has played things down and said itâ€™s not a serious relationship. Chelsy may be using him to make Harry realise what heâ€™s missing. They were very much in love so sheâ€™s definitely not over him yet.â€™
Sadly, Chelsy may be too late, due to Harryâ€™s friendship with Gladiators host Caroline, 28.
“They are Facebook friends and message each other all the time. Harry thinks sheâ€™s cute. Heâ€™s really busy with his Army training but he rather likes Caroline.” says a friend.
