Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend 

PRINCE HARRY was being bombarded by calls and texts from "needy" ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy while the royal was at Sandhurst, the court heard.

In claims heard at the phone-hacking trial of ex-News of the World staff, journalists said on-off lover Miss Davy was "driving him nuts"by "blitzing him with calls and texts" when training at the military base.
Royal Editor of the newspaper at the time, Clive Goodman, emailed Editor Andy Coulson in August 2005 saying how the royal should have been concentrating on his training but was being bombarded with contact from Miss Davy.
The email read to the court said: "Chelsy is driving Harry nuts, she won't leave Harry alone.
"He's not allowed to use his mobile at Sandhurst until he's off duty but she's blitzing him with dozens of calls and texts when he should be concentrating on his training.
"Family likes her well enough but they're worried that she's incredibly needy just at the time when Harry needs to be concentrating on himself."

Goodman, who was convicted of hacking-related offences in 2007, said in the email she had tried to ring his mobile 60 times in a month.
It read: "We've been having a very quiet look at this independently and it works out in just over one month she's put in nearly 60 calls to his mobile.
"That's on top of texts, Harry can only field these after he's finished his training duties sometimes after 10pm."
The final sentence of the email read: "He keeps the phone on, but on silent – it buzzes and vibrates so frequently with new M [sic]."

An email from Clive Goodman
Goodman, from Addlestone, Surrey and Coulson, 45, from Charing, Kent, face two allegations of working together to commit misconduct in public office.
Earlier in the trial, the jury heard how the newspaper had allegedly hacked phones to get stories about the Royals.
The prosecution alleged that information from a story titled "Harry's aide helps out on Sandhurst exams" was discovered in a voicemail illegally accessed by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
Goodman claimed Mulcaire, known in an email as "Matey", was a useful source for getting royal stories.
In another email to Coulson, he wrote: "This contact has become increasingly productive in recent weeks, especially since William started at Sandhurst.
"We are the only paper getting any information out of there at all about his movements and Kate's."
In reply, all Coulson says is: "I'm sorry he has to go."
Mulcaire has already pleaded guilty phone-hacking related charges.
Four people, including Coulson have also been charged with conspiring to hack phones.
Former News Of The World editor Rebekah Brooks, News Editor Ian Edmondsen and Managing Editor Stuart Kuttner are also accused.
