Prince Harry has made headlines again today for a revealing interview in which he talks about becoming an uncle, partying naked in Vegas and fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. Because we’re huge fans of the red-headed royal, we’ve compiled 28 reasons on why he’s so fabulous just for your viewing pleasure. From his cheeky escapades to his work in the army – here’s why we’re positively smitten with the single prince…
Prince Harry has made headlines again today, this time for a revaling interview in which he spills the beans on being an uncle, getting naked in Las Vegas, and flying Apache helicopters in Afghanistan. We’ve always been big fans on the (single!) royal, so here, just for you, are our 28 reasons why we’re head-over-heels in love with the prince.
Born on 15th September, 1984 in St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, Harry weighed 6lbs 14oz. His real name is – wait for it – Prince Henry Charles Albert David. Remember the Olympic Closing Ceremony when Twitter thought the commentator got his name wrong? Well, his real name really IS Henry! Fact. He works hard in his role as an Army Air Corps helicopter pilot. Not only that, but he’s a keen sportsman, enjoying both rugby and polo when he’s not working or on royal duties.
He also loves cricket, skiing and off-road motorbiking. Yummy. The prince made global headlines in August 2012 when he was photographed naked at a pool party in Las Vegas, while hanging out with US Olympian Ryan Lochte and a bunch of hot ladies. And how did he recover? By cosying up to kids at the WellChild Awards in London, proving that he might have a big name in the royal family, and a big appetite for partying – but he’s also got a big heart. Here’s why WE love him…
Prince Harry isn’t just a party animal, you know – he’s got a full time job. And we don’t mean being Prince Charming. Harry works as an Army Air Corps helicopter pilot and has just returned from spending four months in Afghanistan. So, not only does he DO good, but he LOOKS good in the uniform, too!
Prince Harry attended a whole host of games at the London 2012 Olympics, and he even represented the Queen at the Olympic Closing Ceremony. Team GB? We’re Team Harry!
Prince Harry is REALLY good with kids. So he’s single, third in line to the throne and will make a good father for our children. Where do we sign up?
We fell in love with Prince Harry a long time ago, but this cheeky snap of the royal holding a teddy bear at a military service awards in London has made us want to take both these lovelies home to bed with us… ahem.
Prince Harry needn’t have got all his qualifications, we mean, if he wanted to be the naughty Prince and not work at all, we’re sure he’d have been allowed to. But Hazza has got his GCSEs, A-Levels, took a gap year where he publicised the plight of orphans in Africa, then trained as a Forward Air Controller for NATO forces. Which means he’s pretty special.
Imagine this Prince playing with your dog on a Sunday afternoon while you go on a romantic stroll through a local park… Hmm – where were we? Prince Harry loves dogs, which means we love him.
We’ve got puppy love for this Prince. Kate Middleton totally picked the wrong brother – doesn’t this just make your heart melt?
Aside from being all royal, loving dogs and looking hot, Prince Harry also loves to play sport. We love a sporty boy, but Harry exceeds all our expectations by playing rugby, polo, cricket and riding motorbikes off-road. HOT.
Prince Harry also loves to ski. Growing up, he often took to the slopes with his dad Prince Charles and his brother Prince William. On top of that, he also looks pretty darn adorable in a ski hat.
When his brother Prince William married Kate Middleton, Prince Harry was right by his side, suited and booted. Our favourite moment? When Harry turned round to his brother and said: “Just a small family affair…” Ha!
When we first spotted these pictures of Prince Harry having a fumble at the polo, we were a little shocked. Then we realised – he’s just a being a normal guy – and for this, we heart him.
Prince Harry is a keen polo player, meaning we get to watch him ride around on a horse, fulfilling all our Disney Princess fantasies!
It’s no secret that Prince Harry likes to party – and who can blame him? He’s a 28-year-old who likes to have a good time with his friends.
The Prince is currently Patron of a number of charities and organisations, including Sentebale, which he set up for the orphans after visiting them in Lesotho. And he holds two honorary military appointments (in the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force). What a legend.
Prince Harry paid tribute to gold medallist Bradley Wiggins by sporting fake sideburns at the Olympic games. LOVE.
Prince Harry… standing by a hot flaming torch, gives us an opportunity to say how much we love hs flame-red hair, and how HOT the Prince’s bod is. See what we did there? Oh, we do make ourselves chuckle sometimes.
When Prince Harry visited Jamaica in March, he posed for photographs with Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, before holding her hand and joking to photographers “she’s my date for tonight!”. Hilarious.
Prince Harry loved the Olympics, but even more so, he loved Jamaican runner Usain Bolt. On his Jamaican visit, he made crowds giggle by performing the Olympian’s signature move, before dancing to reggae music with locals!
In 2007, Prince Harry was meant to be deployed to Iraq with his regiment, but Clarence House cancelled his trip for fear of his safety. Harry condemned the decision, saying it was unfair for his troops to go and fight while he sat at home safe. Aww! However, he didn’t go – as a royal target, he’d be putting them in danger.
We’re not the only ones obsessed with Prince Harry, either. Kids LOVE him. And who can blame them? As the joker of the family, this one has a brilliant sense of humour, and knows how to make people feel comfortable around him, royal or not.
Prince Harry has been linked to his fair share of ladies – aside from his relationship with Chelsy Davy, he’s also enjoyed flings with The Saturdays’ Mollie King and model Cressida Bonas.
While most royals, including his brother Prince William, are at their most formal on foreign visits, Prince Harry is happy to rough and tumble with the locals. What we wouldn’t give to rugby tackle him…
When Prince Charles married Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Harry said: “She’s not the wicked stepmother… She’s a wonderful woman and she’s made our father very, very happy which is the most important thing. William and I love her to bits.” Aww!
Do we even need to caption this picture? We love a boy with a sense of humour. And an access all areas pass!
Prince Harry isn’t afraid to speak his mind, no matter how controversial his comments might be. He once said: “To be honest dinner conversations was the worst bit about being a child and listening to the boring people around me.” Ooh…
When Prince harry got naked in Las Vegas (swoon), it was thought that his reputation would be left in tatters. But he rocked up to his first public appearance since the scandal with confidence, greeting kids at the WellChild Awards with giggles as they joked about him keeping his clothes on!
Thanks to THOSE naked Prince Harry pics (yes, we know we keep mentioning them) – we know what the prince looks like naked. And boy, is it lovely.
Harry said today: "I don’t think you can ever be urged to settle down. If you find the right person and everything feels right, then it takes time, especially for myself and my brother.
"You ain’t ever going to find someone who’s going to jump into the position that it would hold. Simple as that."
Er, helloooo. We’d happily take on the role of princess!
