Prince Harry: Dating News And Dating Woes For This Self-Proclaimed ‘Bad Uncle’

Prince Harry’s romantic and social life are always a popular topic, as the young Prince is known for being a bit of the wild sort in comparison to older brother William. Harry has been reportedly linked to a number of women over the past few years, and there is always speculation over who it is that William’s younger brother is dating.

Lately, there have been claims that Harry has been dating Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman. The two were spotted out in each other’s company a little while back, which led to speculation that the pair were starting a romance. Comparisons even began to be drawn to Harry’s older brother, William, and his stunning bride, Kate Middleton. The resemblance between the Hollywood star and Middleton is quite striking, after all.

However, most recently, the young actress has been spotted out and about with her ex-boyfriend Richard Madden, with whom Coleman had split up with in April, mere months before chatting with Prince Harry. The Mirror notes, however, that it seems Coleman and Madden are in fact back together.

“Jenna Coleman and Richard Madden split up in April this year, but it could only have been for a short time as the pair were spotted holding hands in London this weekend. The sighting of the couple comes just months after pictures emerged of Jenna enjoying a chat with Prince Harry at the Audi Polo event at Coworth Park in May.”

The publication adds that the event during which Harry and Coleman seemed to get cozy was perhaps blown out of proportion by onlookers, and that the two never intended to take their interaction any further than a friendly chat. A source shared about the rumors that were sparked by Harry’s interaction with Coleman.

“They were just two people on a night out chatting. Jenna was honoured to meet Prince Harry, but the pictures make their chat look more intimate than it was.”

It appears Prince Harry is still an eligible young royal who has gotten himself involved in some noble causes as of late, including joining conservation projects in Southern Africa. However, Harry recently admitted that due to his commitments to the cause, he has gotten himself into the bad uncle books with William and Kate’s little ones, Charlotte and George. Hello! Magazine shares Harry’s concerns about being absent from a few important occasions.

“The Queen’s grandson made the comments when chatting with conservation workers about their families. Simson Uri-Khob who runs Save The Rhino said: (The Prince said) ‘What a bad uncle I am! I should really be there. But today I am here, this is where I want to be.'”

In addition, Harry also shared the fact that dating is often tricky with his bodyguards constantly around after the workers posed questions on the subject. Prince Harry jokingly replied to their line of questioning about whether his guards get in the way of his romantic life.

“Unfortunately yes, more than ever. But I know how to handle that.”
