Prince Harry admits he won’t be getting married “for a long time”


This is funny – Prince Harry was doing a tour of London’s Royal Hospital yesterday, and he was asked by an 85-year-old veteran: “When are you getting married?” Eight-five years old and a good gossip every day of his life, I presume. I love when old dudes get all up in the young whippersnappers’ bidness. Anyway, Harry was startled, but he managed some finesse:

Now that Prince William is officially spoken for, everyone wants to know about little bro Prince Harry’s wedding plans — even elderly war vets! Dating Chelsy Davy on-and-off for the past four years, Harry, 26, toured London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea’s infirmary (founded in 1682 for British war heroes) on Thursday.

While greeting vets Harry encountered 85-year-old William Titchmarsh, a member of the Gunners Regiment. “When are you getting married?” Titchsmarsh asked the Prince. Decked out in his Blues and Royals uniform, the redhead looked surprised by the bold question.

“Not for a long time,” Harry replied. “Who put you up to ask me that?”

Joked Titchmarsh: “They’ll shoot me in the morning!”

After that exchange — and meeting with the hospital’s oldest resident, 99-year-old Joe Britain — Harry watched the annual Chelsea Pensioner’s parade, where 300 elderly vets marched and gave military salutes.

Following the parade, he praised the marchers — and mocked his older brother William, 28. “I find it terrifying that your drill is so much better than my brothers’, but it doesn’t surprise me.”

Getting serious, he added: “The Army, for me and thousands like me, is a family. In that respect, for veterans coming here, it must be like coming home. That is why this place matters, and always will.”

So… Harry won’t be getting married “for a long time.” Too bad Chelsy, too bad Pippa, too bad Adele, too bad Charlize, and too bad Cameron Diaz. The Ginger Prince is going to sit at home and watch Bridget Jones’ Diary whilst eating some Ben & Jerry’s, thank you very much. He is going to become a proud father… of two gorgeous cats. He’s going to get choked up during commercials for greeting cards and life insurance. He’s not going to be hurt one more time. He’s not gonna cry no more!

By the way, I salute Mr. William Titchmarsh. You are a world-class gossip. Next time, ask a follow-up, “So, how big is it, kiddo?”

    Harry is just too damn handsome to be Prince Charles’ kid.

  2. Quest says:

    How sweet…he’s gonna be sharing his Royal Dong to all the lucky ladies until he is ready to be locked down. Can’t blame the guy.

  3. luls says:

    That close-up PROVES that hes NOT good-looking AT ALL.
    And im being ‘nice’ with my word choice.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    Awww! He’s so hot.

  5. mln76 says:

    Glad he’s smart enough to just say no to marraige until he matures.

  6. gee says:

    Good.. that leaves time for me to get to know him…. :)

  7. Kevin says:

    He’s a good looking guy but I think he’s going to be the poster boy for rosacea one day. Heavy drinking is not going to help him in that regard either.

  8. guesty says:

    *swoons* Lol. Such a hottie.

  9. poopie says:

    His dad has GOT to be James Hewitt the polo player NOT Charles. he’s the spitting image of Hewitt. and i think he’s cute and comes off very sweet in interviews. his mum would be proud

  10. normades says:

    He has Gosdong’s “my eyes are too close together” hot thing going.

  11. ladybert62 says:

    The more I see of him, the more I think he does look like Charles. That said, I just dont see why every drools over him. Neither him nor Williams are very attractive in my opinion. They both do seems like nice people though.

  12. NancyMan says:

    Yo poopie,

    Even I who love a good scandal can see and admit that Prince Harry obviously inherited Prince Charles’s facial features. They share the same eyes and nose.

    Besides, its a fact that the Hewitt didn’t meet Princess Diana until after Harry was born. It isn’t fair to anyone keep suggesting something that can’t be true.

  13. Onyx XV says:

    Good for him! Wonder what’s with the bits of shrubbery stuck in all their lapels?

  14. feebee says:

    Until I saw them all wearing the leaves I wondered what on earth he’d been doing in the bushes before the ceremony.

  15. really says:

    perhaps he is gay! A real piper.

  16. spinner says:

    From the original Swooner…


  17. Nat says:

    Finally, better posture than he had at Wills’ wedding! He looks FINE! :)

  18. REALIST says:

    Oh Kaiser, you must be over the moon!
    I am glad that the Chelsy babe ran away; she was definitely NOT “quality”.

  19. John Wayne Lives says:

    He’s waiting for me, holding out hope I will get divorced and he can be mine all mine :)

    @feebee, LMAO!!!!!

  20. megan says:

    Oh Hazzer you epic sex god

  21. Mairead says:

    I agree, pure Windsor with Spencer colouring.

  22. eva says:

    I hadn’t noticed this until recently. Prince Harry looks very much like his grandfather, Prince Phillip.

  23. jemshoes says:

    It just seems like Harry’s happy with his place in his family – a lot happier than his own father has ever been when it comes to the throne. And when you’re not directly in line to being King, there’s no pressure to get married and have an heir. I really think Harry’s the luckier one – he’s certainly allowed to be the more carefree Royal of the two.

  24. RHONYC says:

    and let the church say, A-men! :lol:

  25. jenn says:

    they are wearing oakleaves which is the emblem of the hospital

  26. Emily says:

    @jemshoes, ITA, I can’t even imagine the amount of pressure that’d be put on a royal heir. I’d definitely want to be a younger son or a daughter!

    That old guy deserves a medal for that! I hope I’m still gossiping like that when I’m old. I can’t wait to get to the age where you can say ANYTHING and no one can tell me off because I’m so old. Good times!
