Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy is enjoying her first holiday as a mother and wife after flying to South Africa with partner Sam Cutmore-Scott and newborn son Leo.
The new mum, 36, was seen with her new husband in Cape Town, where the couple are reportedly introducing their little boy to family and friends.
A friend of the couple told the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden: “It’s so heartwarming for Chelsea’s loved ones to spend time with her husband and son.”
Chelsea and her new husband were not seen with their newborn as they enjoyed a sun-drenched walk in Cape Town on Monday.

The newlyweds kept a low profile in a baggy taupe hoodie and jogging bottoms, while her husband opted for a slouchy jumper to keep pace with his new wife’s attire.
However, Chelsy did add a touch of glamour in the form of her dazzling engagement and wedding rings.
Zimbabwean-born Chelsy, who runs a jewellery and luxury travel business, managed to conceal her pregnancy and gave birth to Leo at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in January.
She only hinted that she was in a serious relationship in 2020, but didn’t reveal the name of her new boyfriend, explaining: “There’s someone — I like this guy a lot — but it’s new and I don’t want to say a lot.”

Chelsea has kept her wedding a secret, secretly marrying her millionaire hotel partner earlier this month. She and Sam, 37, a year above Harry at Eton College, live together in Chiswick, west London.
The blonde beauty dated Prince Harry for seven years until 2010, and went largely unnoticed for the next 12 years.

The couple welcomed son Leo in January, almost no one knew she was pregnant, and his birth was kept so secret that his arrival didn’t come until three months after he was introduced to the Norfolk local parish council .
Chelsea, who broke up with Harry because he didn’t want to be a royal bride, also Sam’s secret until it was revealed three weeks ago.
Sam is the brother of 35-year-old Jack Cattmore-Scott, the dashing Hollywood actor best known for his roles in Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-winning “Creed” and TV series “Deception.”
The siblings are close and Chelsy is believed to have been with her current husband in Los Angeles since meeting him about three years ago. They were first pictured together during a family holiday in Mauritius during Christmas 2019.
Oxford graduate Sam is managing director of the family business Holt Harper Hotel and the couple are believed to split their time between their Chiswick townhouse and the Norfolk coast.
“They got married,” a friend told the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden earlier this month, adding: “Very few people know about the wedding.”

Chelsea found her man after an “on and off” relationship with Harry, who told friends before their split in 2011 that she was “the best thing that ever happened to me”.
They met in London at school, but in 2004 Harry met during a trip to Zimbabwe, where Chelsea’s millionaire dad owns and runs a wildlife sanctuary.
Things got so serious that palace officials said he started calling her “wife” while she called him “husband”.
It’s obviously serious business when Chelsea will not only be attending Harry’s cousin Peter Phillips’ wedding to Autumn Kelly – who was introduced to the Queen – but she’ll also be invited to Prince Charles’ 60th birthday celebration matter.

But with Harry serving in Afghanistan, the pressures of their conflicting careers and long separation took their toll again. There are also rumors that party-loving TV presenter Caroline Fleck and other beautiful young women have caught Harry’s attention.
“He was fascinated by her wild, carefree attitude and rock chick lifestyle,” the late Caroline’s confidante said at the time.
The pair reunited again in 2010 before splitting permanently later that year, with Chelsea declaring that the royal girlfriend’s life was “not for me”. However, she will continue to appear as his “plus one” at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.
But it’s clear that she and Harry remained friends afterward, as she was invited to his wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018 – as royal watchers wondered if it might have been her with the royal family if things had been different walk down the aisle.
Sam Cutmore-Scott is a director of his parents’ hotel company, Bijou Collection, which owns four exclusive wedding venues: a mansion, estate and convent in his hometown, and a castle in the south of France. He lives with Chelsea in Chiswick, West London.
Party-loving Chelsea, who was born in Zimbabwe and now runs a jewellery and luxury travel business, revealed in 2020 that she has a serious boyfriend but didn’t give his name, explaining: “Someone, I love this, but It’s very new and I don’t want to say too much.
