Prince Harry really loves the kids! For more than a decade, the prince has worked with his children's charity Sentebale in Lesotho, Africa to help give back to the smallest members of the next generation. He told PEOPLE in 2016 that children are an "upgrade of us" and one day he can't wait to be a father. “There have been moments through life, especially when we do a tour abroad, when I think, ‘I’d love to have kids now.’...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.”

The Prince is definitely all about making sure whomever he's with is both safe and comfortable at all times. "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," Harry told The Sunday Times. Swoon!

In 2015, Prince Harry ended his military service after a 10 year career. The 32-year-old served during two tours of duty on the front lines in Afghanistan as a forward air controller and Apache Aircraft Commander, according to TODAY. In his retirement, the Prince plans to devote his time and focus to helping wounded service members, battling AIDS in finding a cure as his mother did and working with other charities.

Prince Harry is super close with the Queen of England. I mean that is his grandmother after all! In 2016, the Prince spoke candidly about his relationship with the Royal Heighness calling her his "boss." "I still view her more as the queen than my grandmother," he says in the documentary, Elizabeth at 90--A Family Tribute. "You have this huge amount of respect for your boss and I always view her as my boss, but occasionally as a grandmother."

No stranger to public speaking, the Prince will walk up to a mic and own it. While speaking to plan for the launch of the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, Harry spilled all his intimate emotions about feeling conflicted as a soldier and as a human being.
"Once in the air, I stuck my head through the curtain to see three British soldiers, really young lads, much younger than me at the time, laid out on stretchers in induced comas all three wrapped in plastic, missing limbs with tubes coming out of them everywhere. It struck me that this was just one flight of many carrying home men and women whose lives would be changed forever. And some who had made the ultimate sacrifice. I sat high above the ground at the controls of one of the world’s most advanced helicopters and yet found I was powerless to protect the men, women and children below,” he said.
