Despite the female attention showered on him during his Diamond Jubilee trip, Prince Harry has admitted that his status may make it difficult to find lasting love.In a candid interview, the dashing royal  who received a marriage proposal from Miss Bahamas and was seen giving up thumbs up after a kiss from one of Brazil's top models  mused on his chances of marriage. His long term relationship with Chelsy Davy ended in 2009 after five years. Apparently the Zimbabwean blonde felt that a life of royal duty was not for her.


This seemed to be uppermost in his mind when he told a US TV channel: "I'm not so much searching for someone to fulfil the role, (as concentrating) on finding someone that would be willing to take it on." When asked if ladies found being with a royal lived up to popular perception, he said: "No, not at all, ha ha – as any girl would ever tell you. "It's sort of, 'Oh my god, he's a Prince'. But no. "Some of the ladies who may be in a position to comment include TV presenter Caroline Flack – who was linked to the Prince – and lingerie model Florence Brudenell-Bruce.

She and the Apache pilot dated for two months, but he apparently ended the relationship, not wanting to be tied down.

In the interview, Harry also commented on the "privileged position" that he and his brother hold.


"With privilege comes great responsibility is what they say. "We are slowly coming to terms with that and accepting the fact that (our titles) can make a huge difference therefore, you know, you've got to use it." But he added: "There are a lot of times that both myself and my brother wish that we were just completely normal."
