Prince Harry has reportedly been "gutted" by the end of his relationship with girlfriend of five years Chelsy Davy.
His friends claim that the couple still "love each other to bits." but decided to part ways because they had separate courses to chart in their lives.
While the Royal wanted to focus on his helicopter pilot training with the Army Air Corps, Chelsy will start as a solicitor after completing a postgraduate law course at Leeds University later this year.
"Harry knows he needs to knuckle down with this career with the military while Chelsy is taking her finals this year and wants to forge ahead with hers," the Telegraph quoted a friend as telling the Daily Mail.
"They have rowed and split up before but this time it appears to be permanent," The pal added.
Chelsy dumped Harry on Facebook by updating her online profile to read "Relationship: Not in one."
The couple’s friends have said that she had become "extremely vocal" about their problems in recent months, and both of them agreed to split after returning from a holiday in Mauritius.
It has emerged that the Zimbabwean beauty was particularly frustrated because they didn’t get enough time to spend together.
And also, she was also bugged by the Prince''s increasingly frequent nights out with Army friends.
"The truth of the matter is that while they love each other to bits, Harry and Chelsy have been putting in opposite directions for some time," said a friend.
