It looks like the prospect of being a princess was a little more than <a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Prince Harry</strong></a>’s girlfriend Chelsy Davy could handle, as reports surfaced over the weekend that the 23-year-old felt “suffocated” by life inside the Royal Family, according to sources.

Chelsy, who hails from the African nation of Zimbabwe, is said to have disliked the constant scrutiny the Royals were under and was also unhappy about the limited time she spent with Harry because of his military career.

Reports claim that Chelsy had been considering moving to London to be with her Prince, but is now expected to return to Africa after finishing her two-year post-graduate law degree at Leeds University.

“It has always been a volatile relationship and they have broken up before," London’s Daily Express quotes a source as saying. "But this time it really does seem to be the final split. She has got her own life to lead and I think she feels that Harry has never chosen — or perhaps hasn’t been able to choose — to make enough time for her because of what is expected of him."

According to the family friend, it wasn’t Harry’s reputation as a party boy that gave her second thoughts about their relationship. “I’ve just never thought she would become a princess. She finds all of that too suffocating. She’s realised it’s not for her.”
