Prince Harry's girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, has been invited to stay at Highgrove for the first time. In a sign of the growing seriousness of their relationship, the South African student met up with her beau and his family at their Gloucestershire home this weekend.

These days Harry spends most of his time in the unforgiving company of Sandhurst drill instructors, so he was no doubt delighted to be reunited with Chelsy. The pair, who first started dating 18 months ago, hadn't seen each other since they took a holiday in Botswana last September.

The pretty blonde was collected by an old friend when she jetted into London from Cape Town on Friday evening. After spending the night at her pal's Oxfordshire home, she hit the shops on Saturday afternoon before heading for Highgrove where she was greeted by Harry. Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were also there to welcome her, along with the second-in-line Prince William.

While Harry was enjoying a romantic weekend at the royal estate, his uncle Prince Edward was hit by some rather less salubrious news. The Earl of Wessex's television company, Ardent Productions, is to be dissolved after 12 years of operation that have seen it affected by several controversies.
