According to Vanity Fair, Davy was invited to the royal wedding but learned she wasn't invited to the evening reception.

A family friend told Vanity Fair that Harry called Davy out of courtesy and they shared a "tearful phone call."

"It was their final call, a parting call in which they both acknowledged Harry was moving on," the source told Vanity Fair. "Chelsy was quite emotional about it all, she was in tears and almost didn't go to the wedding. In the end, she went and promised Harry she wouldn't try and gate-crash the party."
