Our favourite Royal, Prince Harry, turns 30 on Monday. We take a look at Harry through the years...


Our favourite royal, Prince Harry, turns 30 on Monday and is due to celebrate this weekend at a private party organised by his big brother Wills and wife, Kate. We presume our invite is in the post, yah?

The single party-loving prince, nicknamed ‘the spare to the heir’ because he’s now fourth in line to the throne behind baby Prince George, will inherit £10 million on his birthday left for him by his mum Diana.

So what do you buy the boy who has everything? Well, Harry says he wants a Labrador dog and a country cottage for his birthday and wait for it… a Windsor wife! (We’re over here, Hazza!)

This week Harry spoke about turning 30 at the launch of his event the Invictus Games, saying, ‘I’m slowly starting to feel old… I am actually quite old. I think I’m always young at heart.’

Apparently, after seeing many of his friends and his brother settling down, Harry is finally ready to hang up his party boots and wants nothing more than a quiet life. The Queen is expected to gift him with a country cottage for his birthday,

And reportedly there have been many jokes within Kensington Palace about Harry ‘getting a bitch for his birthday’ too! Whether they’re referring to the new dog or Harry‘s lack of significant other, he is keen to settle down.

Since splitting up with aristocrat and socialite, Cressida Bonas, earlier this year, Harry has remained single. Before that there was another willowy blonde, Chelsy Davy, who is dubbed the one true love of his life. They dated for seven years before eventually splitting up in 2010 and Chelsy is now dating jeweller Charles Goode.

Previously, Harry has been linked with lingerie model Florence BrudenellBruce, Natalie Pinkham and Laura Gerard Leigh who he met at Eton school.

As he turns 30, we’ve seen a very different Harry to the one who dressed up as a nazi when he was 20 at a fancy dress party and exposed his crown jewels in Vegas when he was photographed starkers, bear-hugging a naked girl in his VIP suite.

Harry has been helping disadvantaged young people in the UK, raising awareness and support for those who have served in the armed forces and helping children in Lesotho, as part of his work with The Royal Foundation, the grant-giving organisation run by William, Kate and Harry.

There’s no doubt about it after everything he’s achieved, Harry‘s beloved mum, Diana, would be so incredibly proud of her little boy. We’re sure she will have a very special, private part to play in his birthday celebrations this weekend too.
