London, February 16 (ANI): Prince Harry's former girlfriend Chelsy Davy has been accused of using her royal connections to land a job at a top law firm.
The 23-year-old, who parted ways with the soldier prince in January this year, had pocketed a 37,000-pound-a-year training contract with London's Allen and Overy.
Her fuming competitors have alleged that she won the deal for her "public relations bling" value that could reap marketing benefits for the prestigious company.
"This is a prime example of royal connections aiding and inflating the career of somebody who is probably no better than some of the rejected candidates who attended a better university," the Daily Star quoted an enraged law student as telling TheLawyer.com.
"A and O have secured phenomenal brand exposure for the measly cost of a trainee's wage for two years," the student added.
However, a spokesman at the firm said: "Everyone goes through the same rigorous selection process."
Chelsy is set to begin her term later this year, after completing her postgraduate law course at Leeds University. (ANI)
