Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend’s expression at the royal wedding has become an instant meme

James Dawson

Looks pretty awkward…

It can’t be easy, can it, turning up to your ex’s wedding. Imagining what could have been and whatever else.

That’s got to be especially true if what could have been is a royal occasion. You becoming a princess. No, that can’t be easy at all.

But that was the hell that Chelsy Davy had to go through, having previously dated future married-man (and the second most likely royal to be a lizard) Prince Harry.

Check out this footage of her ahead of the ceremony:

The pair of them dated on and off between 2004 and 2010, and apparently, they’re still good mates.

A source told W Magazine: “Harry has stayed good friends with Chelsy and [other ex] Cressida, so they will be there… He made sure there were no hard feelings when they split up. I don’t think Meghan will mind.”

But, obviously, people were quick to pick up on that look on her face:

If nothing else, the world will now be able to put a face to the emotion of “Oh, I feel like I really shouldn’t be here…” from now until the end of time.

Or at least until the next wedding of an ex you get invited to…
