Social media users couldn’t help but notice that it was quite weird that Chelsey Davis, who dated Prince Harry seven years ago, was invited to the royal wedding. Many poked fun at her facial expression, which became an instant meme, during the ceremony, suggesting that she regretted their breakup and would seize the last chance to voice her objections during the “speak now or forever hold your piece” moment.
The #ItShouldHaveBeenMe hashtag has gone viral on Twitter:
This really is an unfortunate photo. She looks like the scorned woman at the end of an episode of a soap opera.. staring and plotting.. whisky in hand… the regret.. the envy.. #RoyalWedding #ItShouldHaveBeenMe #chelseadavy #TheEx pic.twitter.com/ICw1Fb5G5U— Just Me (@BusiPsych) 19 мая 2018 г.

While another user suggested that Davis was trying to figure out why her ex had invited her to his wedding:
It appears that she was not the only ex at the wedding, as Cressida Bonas, who Harry dated for two years up until 2014, was also present:
