18 Reasons the World Never Stops Falling in Love With Prince Harry


Prince Harry has been under the scrutiny of the public eye ever since he was born. The life of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s second son has, in the words of Telegraph’s Helena Kealey, been “recorded, photographed and documented.” It seems that the public know everything about this dashing prince. But how really well do you know Prince Harry? Read on and find out why the world keeps on loving Prince Harry, the “King of Hearts.”


He is Princess Diana’s “Little Spencer.” The princess claimed that Harry got his red hair from the Spencer family. 

Prince Harry is a best-selling cover boy.  The May 2011 issue of the British men’s magazine, GQ where Harry was on the cover, taken in black and white by David Bailey was the magazine’s best-selling issue of all time—even toppling One Direction.

Harry’s love for chocolate and cake is undeniable. When he was on his Walking with the Wounded expedition to South Pole, he brought with him a substantial chocolate supply that lasted him during the trip’s duration. He even surprised his companions by serving them a slice of ice-cream cake every night! Little did they know that the prince dragged the cake with him all the time.



He goes to the same hair-cutter since he was a child. And it’s a local woman in Tetbury who has been keeping his hair.

He was a wild child. When he was younger, Harry’s been embroiled to quite a number of scandals, including his rumored drug use, posing in a Nazi uniform in 2005, and getting photographed naked in Las Vegas in 2012.

He was a shooter at a young age. Until now. He even shot Prince Charles’ favorite moorhen on the pond at Highgrove, much to his father’s dismay.



He loves flowers. Prince Harry got his love for flowers and plants from Prince Charles. In 2013, Queen Elizabeth II praised him after visiting his charity garden during the Chelsea Flower Show. The prince collaborated with Matthew Keightley for a carefully planned garden that seemingly transported visitors to the Lesotho wildlife landscape.

He worked as a jackaroo. Harry worked as a jackaroo at a Queensland ranch in Australia during his gap year. His job included “rounding up herds of bull on a cattle station, mustering cattle and mending fences.” 

He is Prince George’s “Funcle.” He named himself so because he is the prince’s "Fun" "Uncle."



He still can’t get over the night Princess Diana died. In an interview with NBC News, Prince Harry said that his mind still lingers on the night that his mother died, asking himself whatever happened in that tunnel.

He has his own coat of arms. It was granted to him when he turned 18.

He was twice sent to Afghanistan. His first assignment was with the Household Cavalry until the trip had to be cut short because “a media blackout was broken.” On his second trip, he was assigned to the 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps.



He is an excellent Apache attack helicopter. During his stint in the British army, his piloting abilities earned him the recognition as an "instinctive flyer."

Prince Harry killed Taliban fighters. “Take a life to save a life, that’s what we revolve around, I suppose. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game, I suppose,” he said.

His compassion for children began when he was still young. According to Telegraph, His mother, Princess Diana, “took him and William around homeless projects and Aids wards,” so they would get to know what people’s felt then, what were their “insecurities” and aspirations in life.



He started a charity at the age of 18. He defied Prince Charles’ orders not to go to Lesotho after witnessing the plight of AIDS orphans. Instead, he opened a nonprofit called Sentebale (African for forget-me-not) to help alleviate their condition.  The initial financial difficulties did not deter him from pursuing the institution’s aim. Sentebale eventually progress and now disburses millions of pounds a year, helping children in AIDS-ravaged countries.

The prince is happiest in Africa. There, he spends his time with the underprivileged away from the glaring eyes of paparazzi.

The Invictus Games was his brainchild. Prince Harry had the injured servicemen in his mind when he was planning of launching of the Paralympic-style Invictus Games. This happened after watching a Warrior Games in Colorado Springs in 2013. The event is held in London with over 400 active and retired military personnel from 13 countries as participants. They compete nine adaptive sports: athletics, swimming, powerlifting, indoor rowing, sitting volleyball, road cycling, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, and archery.

The Truth about “Princess Qajar,” the Royal Lady with the Mustache

A Persian princess viral news websites baptized as Princess Qajar has lately become a stuff of legends. She was presented as a royal lady with a facial hair that made her so attracted that 13 men claimed their own lives because she couldn’t love them. The truth is, there was no “Princess Qajar,” only the Qajar dynasty  that ruled over Persia for more than a century.

The only fact about this historical meme is that at that time, it was fashionable for Persian women to wear mustache. “Many Persian-language sources, as well as photographs, from the nineteenth century confirm that Qajar women sported a thin mustache, or more accurately a soft down, as a sign of beauty,” explained Dr. Afsaneh Najmabadi.
The memes and fake stories circulating online refer not to a single princess, but actually to two female dynasts: Princess Fatemah Khanum"'Esmat al-Dowleh" and her half-sister, Princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh. Their father, Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, ruled Persia from 1…

Why Prince Harry is a Commoner?

Prince Harry is a commoner according to common law, explains royal expert Marlene Eilers Koenig in her blog.
“In the United Kingdom, the law is based on English COMMON law -- from where we get the word Commoner,” she explained. That puts Prince Harry under the rule of the normal law.
Only the sovereign (e.g. The Queen) and the peers of the realm are not commoners, she explained. The peerage of the United Kingdom is composed of, in order of precedence, Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, Viscounts, and Barons.
“That leaves everyone else, including princes and princesses, who have not been created peers of the realm,” Eilers continued to explain. Thus, even if Harry is a Prince of the United Kingdom, he is, by law, a commoner. In precedence, as the queen’s grandson, he ranks higher than the Duke of Norfolk, who is the premier duke in the peerage of England, but according to the law, the Duke of Norfolk is not a commoner, while Harry is is.
However, once he gets married, Her Majesty is highly …

Queen Mary and the Delhi Durbar Tiara

In 1911, King George V and Queen Mary were to be proclaimed Emperor and Empress of India. That was the first and only time that a British sovereign attended the durbar, which was hailed as the largest gathering of princes, noblemen and landed gentry in India to pay homage to their sovereigns. The King and Queen should never be outdone by the petty rulers. They were sure these local princes would come garbed with all the gold and diamonds from their treasure chest. It was decided that they should showcase the crown jewels with them. But British law prohibits anyone from taking these treasures outside Great Britain. A new set of coronation regalia  had to be made! Thus, the India Office commissioned Garrard and Co. to make the Imperial Crown of India for King George V. It has eight arches, with 6170 exquisitely cut diamonds, and covered with sapphires, emeralds and rubies, with a velvet and miniver cap all weighing 34.05 ounces (965 g).

However, Queen Mary was without the empress' …
