Prince Harry has opened up about his private life, slamming what he said was ‘’incessant need’’ to find out every bit of detail about what goes on behind the scenes.
The fifth in line has been the subject of increasing speculations about a potential life, making it almost impossible for him to enjoy any privacy.
Speaking in an interview with the BBC to mark the opening of the Invictus Games in Florida, Harry vowed to always try draw a line between his public life and personal one.
“Everyone has a right to privacy,” Prince Harry told the Andrew Marr programme.
“Sadly that line between public and private life is almost non-existent any more. We will continue to do our best to ensure that there is the line… The private life has to be private and I hope people respect that.”
Harry has been linked with several rumoured girlfriends, including Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark. The reports have been denied by senior royal sources, although not doing little to subdue the amount of coverage in British media.
The 30-years-old insisted in a separate interview with the Sunday Times that he is always open to the idea of marriage, admitting at the same time that his royal duties have meant he has little time to think about starting a family.
“I’m not putting work before the idea of a family, marriage and all that kind of stuff. To be fair, I haven’t had that many opportunities to get out there and meet people. At the moment, my focus is very much of work. But if someone slips into my life then that’s absolutely fantastic.”
Harry added that when he finally finds the right person, he will make sure they are given space to enjoy a comfortable relationship before eventual exposure to spotlight.
“If or when I do find a girlfriend, I will do my utmost to ensure that me and her can get to the point where we’re actually comfortable with each other before the massive invasion that is inevitably going to happen into her privacy.”
Prince Harry, a passionate uncle of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, is known to have broken up with British model Cressida Bonas. He was also involved in a seven-year on-off relationship with Chelsy Davy which ended in 2011.
Ever since, he has been enjoying being 100% single.
