She hardly looks devastated in most of these photos, does she?  Regarding the one titled 'the mourning after', I've never seen such under eye bags on a young girl of just 22.   

Here's a page full of photos of her. She looks more upset than Kate did after her split, in my opinion.

Here's what put the smile on her face (a bit mean but hard to blame her really):

"In a moment of what some might think to be divine retribution, one hapless snapper tumbled over in front of her as she walked to the college campus from her dingy student lodgings shortly before 10am yesterday. It would have taken a heart of stone not to laugh - and Chelsy did not disappoint. Walking past the man - who suffered a nasty injury to his knee as well as his pride (not to mention a broken camera lens) - she burst into an uncontained fit of giggles. "

Another article added that "Chelsy has also had to run the gauntlet of the paparazzi more than ever, something she hates. A member of her circle reports that when asked recently about what kind of law she was going to study, she retorted: "Privacy". "She and Harry row about the photographers more than anything," reveals the friend. "

The Daily Mail also did a comparison of Kate & Chelsea--a bit unfair to Kate, in my opinion, but made some good points:

"One is a tall, leggy brunette with a reputation for being (dare one say it) rather dull, the other a curvaceous beach-bleached blonde who likes nothing more than to party until dawn. But the differences between on-off girlfriends Kate Middleton and Chelsy Davy do not end there. For while it is middle-class Kate who has come to love the trappings that her royal romance brings her, it is bubbly Chelsy who, surprisingly, has crumbled under the weight of public scrutiny. On the surface it is a surprising reaction from a girl who posed for her own modelling portfolio at the age of 17, confiding in the photographer that she "just wanted to be famous". But as Chelsy has learned to her cost, sometimes you really do have to be careful what you wish for - and from the moment that news of her relationship with Harry broke, she has struggled to come to terms with her loss of privacy. Despite complaining about press attention, Kate is a regular face at royal haunts such as Boujis and Mahiki, with an ever-present smile for the paparazzi. Chelsy, on the other hand, is always ready with a scowl. Kate is also not averse to using her relationship with William to her advantage - securing herself a cut-price Audi, similar to that of her boyfriend, at a specially negotiated price given only to royalty or celebrities. On her arrival in England Chelsy chose to buy a small VW Polo. And unlike Kate, who made such a stir when she arrived at Sandhurst for William's passing-out parade, Chelsy chose not to attend Harry's graduation as she feared it would detract from his achievement.

Dating a prince of the House of Windsor is not designed to come with privacy as part of the bargain, so if she ever thought that luxury would be afforded to her, then it is a miracle that she ever got to University at all.

I rather doubt that she lives in 'dingy student lodgings'; many students in Leeds are property owners, most have cars and a surprising degree of affluence, which makes a stark contrast to my remembrances of being a student, when everyone that I knew was utterly skint and we all had jobs to pay our way through Uni.  Chelsey's family, as we know, are not short of a bob or two and there are some pretty ritzy flats to rent/buy in Leeds, many aimed at the student market.........

Comparing her with Kate is unfortunate but inevitable, and Chelsey does not come out the winner.  IMO, Kate just has so much more poise and class and seems to deal with all the attention, most of it unwanted I am sure, with an ease that must cost her some effort.

I think that Harry could do with someone with a bit more class and less of a part lifestyle............

Yup - almost to the consistency of Harry's skull. Crivvens, can it get more tacky? Oh yes, I'm sure. Harry's parents had their moments but their substantial redeening qualities which ultimately prevailed. Harry's brother is on a wobbley surface himself but appears to usually bring a tad more common sense and duty to his overall efforts. Harry alas is the unfortunate embodiment of why royalty's weakness for celebrity and all its trappings is a sure-fire disaster - outdoing the Beatrice-come-lately with ease.                                                                                 Someone please please tell these kids, in no uncertain terms: Stop going to these bloody nightclubs and upper-class-twit excuses for fund-raising rackets; don't complain about the paparazzi when you do provide them with your well-trodden path of predictable jollies; at the same time do evaluate your friends and acquaintances and hangers-on now that you no longer stagger en masse about these infernal entertainments. Get rid of the Entitlement banner you appear to wave morning, noon and bloody night; read some books - especially those which give you a sound understanding of what your ancestors did and what it means. You never know, you may have something to contribute there too one day. Find a charity/cause which really means something to you beyond an image-repair phtot-op with cute grateful little native kids. You make me sick when you do these appallingly superficial stunts. William and the VSO thing is a good start - if you can convince yourself you are truly in it for the people and their quality of life and not becuase it offers the chance to fit lots of skiing in too.

Perfectly put, Tdora1.

Royal sycophants are still rolling these young royals along, giving them the false idea that an occasional smile into a camera or haphazard attendance at some event to aid 'charity' regardless of how dubious, is all they need to accomplish to please the masses, outside of their personal goings on, much of which is spread all over the newspapers.  They are mistaken but, sadly, the cost will not be just to them personally but to the monarchy which their grandmother and grandfather (and many others) have worked hard at their whole lives for the image of dedication to duty and respect it must maintain to function into the future.  Very sad.

Link still dodgy (at least from my server) Kims, but I found it anyway. My giddy aunt. (***Action: Tdora lies down and takes one of her tablets)

Chelsey and the Intelligence Service - oh please.  Whatever next?!

There has been a bit of stuff over the weekend about Chelsey getting on with life in Leeds, whilst Harry continues to phone her and bombard her with text messages, to which she is seemingly immune.

There was a photo of her at a 'tea party' in some student digs that didn't look that glamorous (not hers though I am sure....), at which supermarket bought vodka was being consumed, in the form of simple cocktails.  This was somehow presented to us as a virtue, in contrast to the elaborate and expensive cocktails that she habitually consumes when in London - can't quite grasp the logic of that.........

It is also reported that Kate Middleton has been very supportive to her at this time, as both Harry and Chelsey extended her this kindness to her when she split from William.  It was also alleged that Harry declined to visit her in Leeds, and that when he did, and she cooked him a meal of typical student fare (spaghetti bolognese), he was critical and that they argued about the meal.  It would appear that this Prince's expensive tastes in food and drink can not be compromised, so perhaps it is as well that he did not get to go to Iraq (after all the conditions might just have been a bit too challenging for his personal chef anyway......)

I still don't buy the notion that Chelsey is a simple student in Leeds.  I rather feel that these two pampered and privileged airheads somehow deserve each other and that is they do get back together, at least they won't be spoiling another couple.............

Can ya stand it???

Not really, no.  Could anything be more boring than Harry and Wills and their on/off again relationships?  They're both about as watchable as paint drying.  Having said that, I'll have a quick look at EE's link...
