    Prince Harry and his love life is always fascinating to us, and purely for selfish reasons. We want to marry Harry. So much.

    However, like most 31-year-olds, Harry is still totally on the fence about whether or not he’d like to settle down and have children, and has opened up about his thought on starting a family to People magazine.

    ‘There have been moments through life, especially when we do a tour abroad, when I think, “I’d love to have kids now,”’ he told the mag.

    ‘And then there are other times when I bury my head in the sand going, “All right, don’t need kids!” There’s no rush. I think… I tell you what: There’s been times I’ve been put off having children.’

    Put off?
    Does this mean that Prince George and Princess Charlotte are secretly naughty children behind those cherubic smiles? Um no…

    ‘No, actually, I’ve got a couple of mates and being around their children just brings me back down,’ he reveals.

    Hazza also promises that he wants to be a ‘fun uncle’ to George and Charlotte, adding, ‘no one wants to be boring.’

    However, Harry who is in America to promote the Invictus Games, admits that he can be a bit of a disappointment around children, because he doesn’t look like what they expect from a prince.

    ‘Every time I get to meet kids and they have been told a real-life prince is coming, the disappointment on their faces when they see me without a crown or without a cape…you can tell in the UK and across the world that they are genuinely disappointed, because they live in this fairy-tale land!

    ‘So I am going to pack a crown and a cape this time and some funny pointy-toed shoes.’

    We’re going to hold you to that Harry. It’s on the internet now.
