Prince Harry fears royal duties will stop him “finding someone”

Prince Harry fears royal duties will stop him “finding someone”

He is the fun-loving prince who has been dubbed flirty Harry in the past, but the 27-year-old fears that his role as a royal may stand in the way of finding love.

In an interview with CBS, Prince Harry, who recently shone in his royal role with a successful solo 10-day tour of Latin America to launch the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations, spoke quite honestly about what life as a royal is really like.

When asked whether being a royal lived up to its expectations he said: “No, not at all, ha ha – as any girl would ever tell you.”

The prince, who also revealed that he sometimes wishes he were “normal”, spoke about the reaction he usually receives from women.

“It’s sort of, ‘Oh my god, he’s a prince’. But no. The job that it entails — I mean look at me, I’m 27 years old and not so much searching for someone to fulfill the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on,” he said.

So far, Prince Harry has been somewhat unlucky in love with his five-year on-again off-again relationship with Chelsy Davy ending in 2009 after she made it clear to him that she did not want to live a life of official duties.

Since their split, he has been linked to UK television presenter Caroline Flack and briefly dated lingerie model Florence Brudenell-Bruce.

Despite his concerns it seems Prince Harry made a lasting impression on a number of women while on his tour, with Miss Bahamas 2011 declaring she wanted to marry him.
