Now that Prince William has wed his darling Kate Middleton, single ladies and the monarchy-obsessed British press are already beginning to look to Britain's most eligible bachelor, that loveable ginger rogue Prince Harry.
While William had been under pressure to find the perfect bride and revamp the aging face and declining reputation of the Windsor dynasty, 26-year-old Harry—cruelly referred to as the 'spare prince'—has had wiggle room to fool around. Who Is Hotter? Prince William Or Prince Harry?
Seemingly squeaky-clean William is off the market. Now it's time to seriously examine Harry's ability to make some lucky girl's dreams come true. Will he pull a Prince Andrew and continue to evoke public disdain, or will he submit to his princely duties and find the next Kate Middleton?
Let's start with the good news: Harry is getting hotter by the minute and has already proven himself perfectly capable of maintaining a long-term romance. The Royal Wedding's Best Man Has Got Himself A Date
That blonde, tan plus-one he's bringing to William's wedding isn't just your average insanely-gorgeous daughter of a Zimbabwean multi-millionaire... She's Chelsy Davy—Harry's on-again, off-again girlfriend of six years.
The couple called it quits in January of 2009 after five years together, but were back together by the fall and split up again in 2010. The indecisive couple has certainly had their ups and downs—Harry has reportedly dated everyone from TV host Caroline Flack to singer Camilla Romestrand during his Chelsy hiatuses, and one of their breakups was reportedly fueled by poor Chelsy finding texts from other girls on Harry's phone.
To be fair, it's not like the young prince is the only twenty-something to play the field. Some of the couple's break-ups were due to long distance. It's only natural for a young buck to spend some time seeing what else is out there, especially when his long-time love is on another continent.
The couple has yet to confirm if they're officially back together, but bringing her as his date to the royal wedding is a pretty good sign. Harry keeps coming back to the same girl, despite having his pick of the litter. Might he be closer to settling down than we think?
In fact, Harry and Chelsy's long-winded romance is reminiscent of another royal. It's easy to forget that William and Kate split when William joined the army, amidst rumors that he too felt he was too young for marriage and wanted to play the field. The couple remained friends and occasionally hung out in public before they got back together. Kate may have earned the nickname 'Waity Katie' , but she finally got her prince.
