Prince Harry seems to be ready to follow in his older brother's footsteps — because he's ready to settle down and start a family! In a rare and very personal interview with Sky News on Monday, Harry revealed that he would love to bid farewell to the single life but he's just waiting for the right woman to come along. "There come times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is, but I don't think you can force these things," he said. "It will happen when it's going to happen. Of course, I would love to have kids right now, but there's a process that one has to go through and . . . tours like this are great fun. Hopefully I'm doing all right by myself. It would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure. But, you know, time will come, and whatever happens, happens."

Harry also opened up about his career with the armed forces and the difficult decision he made to leave this June. "It is a case of, if we move on, more responsibilities come. And I suppose with wanting to take on slightly more of (the royal duties) role, I don't really feel I would be in the right position (to help) the careers of more soldiers or to take on the responsibility of continuing to fly, for instance. So it is a balance, and I've tried to get it right over the last six months to a year, before I finished. And it was getting hard. As I said: I'm at a crossroads. As long as people back home . . . know that they can trust me, that I'm making the right decision and that whatever it is, it will be something that means I can give something back. This part of the role is fantastic but I and William — both of us — feel as though we need to have a wage as well; to work with normal people, to keep us sane, to keep us ticking along."

Harry then spoke about the recent birth of his niece, Princess Charlotte, whom he has yet to meet. "I didn't see any coverage at all," he said. "He sent me two photos; one before everybody else, which was nice, and then another — one with her back with George back home. So, as I said, I'm so looking forward to seeing her, to meeting her, and to holding her. She was a little bit late, hence I missed her. So she'll have to work on that! But apart from that, it's fantastic news for both of them. So I'm thrilled." Watch the interview above, then check out Harry getting an unexpected kiss from an admirer in Australia last week.
