Chelsy Davy sparked a million memes this weekend when she was spotted on camera looking glum as her ex-boyfriend Prince Harry wed Meghan Markle .
But the South African jewellery designer proved there were no hard feelings between the three of them when she approached the new Duchess of Sussex at the boozy royal wedding evening reception.
Chelsy’s sweet gesture was seen by other guests, who reported the former lawyer went up to the bride and was all smiles as she hugged her tightly.

Royal wedding reception details
And while she’d been caught on camera looking less than thrilled at the prospect of her significant ex making another woman his wife, Chelsy appeared to be in a much better mood at the boozy party.
Earlier on in the day, some pictures appeared to show Chelsy wearing an all-black ensemble – sparking speculation she was trying to send negative vibes Harry and Meghan’s way.
And she was seen inside St George’s Chapel apparently giving some serious side-eye to some of the other guests as they waited for the bride to arrive.
But she was later spotted laughing and smiling with guests outside the ceremony venue, where the sunlight showed she was wearing a gorgeous navy blue fit-and-flare dress with an inbuilt cape to cover her shoulders.

The 32-year-old teamed her frock with a matching feathery fascinator, which set her bright blonde tumbling curls off perfectly.
And she strutted her stuff in eye-wateringly high heels, decorated with nude pink stones around her ankles and toes.
Chelsy dated Harry on and off between 2004 and 2011, after meeting in Cape Town when Harry was on his gap year after university.
She was spotted with him at a number of big royal events, even meeting the Queen at a society wedding and was Harry’s rock when he was prevented from fighting in Iraq in the army.
Chelsy was even invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding, even though by that point she and Harry had broken things off.

While many royal fans held their breath for a proposal, Chelsy herself poured cold water on speculation they’d get back together – although she said they’d “always be good friends”.
“[Dating Harry] was so full-on: Crazy and scary and uncomfortable,” she revealed after the relationship finished for good.
“I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope. I was young, I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible.”
Meanwhile, Harry and his new bride are set to enjoy a secret one-night ‘mini-moon’ in Ireland after the stress and tension of their big day.
They’re due to fly to the Emerald Isle some time in June or July, although the plans are being kept totally secret for now.
The newlyweds’ official honeymoon won’t be until later in the year – and their first public engagement as a married couple will be on Tuesday May 22 at a garden party at Buckingham Palace, which will honour Prince Charles and his charity work.
