The former couple appear to be over for good this time

Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy may have finally ended their on-off romance – but they haven’t gone far.

Harry, 27, was photographed with Chelsy‘s best friend Lady Melissa Percy, 24, outside London’s Brompton Club on Friday night.

Melissa – who was sitting shoeless on a flight of grubby stairs as she smoked a cigarette and chatted to Harry – is also the sister of 28-year-old Pippa Middleton‘s rumoured boyfriend, Earl George Percy, 27.

But it seems their chat was just friendly and they both left the club separately at around 1.20am.

On the same evening, Chelsy, 26, hit the Chinawhite dance floor with art dealer Blaise Patrick, 27 – a close pal of her royal ex.

Harry and Chelsy dated on-off for 5 years before they broke up in 2009, but they sparked rumours of a reconciliation last year when they attended the Royal Wedding together.

The Prince recently admitted that it’s difficult to find a partner who won’t mind accompanying him as he fulfils his royal responsibilities.

‘It’s sort of: “Oh my god, he’s a prince.” But no,’ Harry told CBS News.

‘The job that it entails – I mean look at me, I’m 27 years old.

‘I’m not so much searching for someone to fulfil the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on.’
