With the news this week that Chelsy Davy is quitting England, many royal watchers feared that would mean the end of the road for the pretty blonde and her royal love Prince Harry.
But it seems the couple are not ready to give up on their love just yet.
Harry has taken two days out of his busy schedule to spend time with 24-year-old Chelsy in Cape Town.
The pair were spotted having lunch with a friend at an upmarket restaurant before returning to the beachside apartment owned by Chelsy's multi-millionaire father.
They were bound to have plenty to discuss during the couple of days they spent together before Harry was due to leave for New York – where he will take part in a charity polo match.
The logistics of their relationship is one tricky topic. It will be much harder for them to spend time together once Chelsy quits her law training to be closer to her family in Africa.
And Harry's military career leaves little time for trips to see his girlfriend of six years. All his efforts will soon be focused on training with the Army Air Corps to become an Apache attack helicopter pilot.
For now royal sources are saying the couple are still "very much an item". But only time will tell if they manage to maintain their long-distance relationship.
