It would appear old habits die hard for Prince Harry and former girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The pair, who separated three months ago, were partying within a mile of each other into the early hours of yesterday.
Miss Davy, 24, made an appearance at new Chelsea venue Jalouse at about 11pm on Friday, before moving on at 1am to the Raffles Townhouse private members’ club in Knightsbridge.
Meanwhile, just a few minutes’ walk away, Prince Harry, 25, and friends including Guy Pelly were at Kitts nightclub in Chelsea.
Fellow partygoers said the Prince was in high spirits and ordered 30 vodka shots and bottles of Perrier Jouet champagne for his friends and hangers-on.
One guest said: “[Prince] Harry was having a ball and was on really good form. He was there with a group of friends and there were plenty of girls cracking on to him but he was very well-behaved.”
The source added: “[Prince] Harry spent most of the evening on the VIP table, but he was also on the dancefloor and was really having a lot of fun dancing to all the cheesy hits. There was a permanent stream of attractive girls making a beeline for his table.”
The Prince left at about 4am with his Royal Protection Officer, whose gun – believed to be a Glock 9mm pistol – could be seen poking from under his sweater.
Prince Harry appeared happy when he left Kitts, having been spared an awkward encounter earlier in the night with his former girlfriend.
Miss Davy stopped outside the club with friends at 3am, while the Prince was still carousing with his companions. She appeared to make a brief phone call, and then her car sped off home.
