British royal PRINCE HARRY is seeking comfort from girlfriend CHELSY DAVY amid the overwhelming media attention surrounding the inquest into his mother, DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES' death. The new investigation, to determine the cause of the Paris car crash which killed the princess and her lover Dodi Fayed in 1997, began on Tuesday (02Oct07). But the extensive press coverage of the case has stunned the 23-year-old prince, the youngest of Diana's two sons with Prince Charles. A friend says, "He told (Davy) the first couple of days of the inquest really took him by surprise. "Hearing details of his mother's death on every news bulletin has hit him like a sledgehammer. Chelsy is worried it has brought back many emotions he felt when she died." Princes William and Harry were only 15 and 12-years-old respectively when Diana died on 31 August 1997.
