While the rumors about a supposed romance between Prince Harry and British pop star Ellie Goulding make the rounds, new revelations about the young royal's intentions to find the perfect match have been made. Harry has reportedly expressed his interest in finding a girlfriend on a show that he is apparently fond of.
Since his split two years ago from Cressida Bonas, Prince Harry has been in the spotlight as the most eligible royal bachelor and is pressured to find the next Kate Middleton. As it turns out, the prince may take to a well-known dating show Take Me Out after reportedly sharing his secret ambition to find love on the show.

The show's host revealed that Harry recently approached him to take part in the program, which, similar to The Bachelor, involves 30 single women who are looking for a date. Paddy McGuinness shares about the conversation he and Prince Harry had over the royal's possible participation on the TV show.
Times Live shares the host's words.
"I'm not going to fill you in on all the details, but he's walked in the room, he's come straight up to me and he's gone: 'I want to be on your show! I want to go to Fernandos!' I said, 'I don't think you need the help.' I'm like, 'what is going on?' I'm a lad from Bolton and I've got the Prince of England asking me, can he go to Fernandos. It doesn't get much better than that."
The dating show Take Me Out requires a single man to choose a love interest from 30 women. Following the selection by the male participant, the couple then travel to the island of Fernando's where they enjoy a date and get to know one another.
It would likely make for one entertaining episode and would draw in viewers in droves if Prince Harry were to actually partake in the program. However, the exchange could have simply been in jest of the fact that Harry's dating life has been of such interest to royal watchers. The prince, who made it known that he really isn't at the point that he feels ready to settle down, is constantly in the headlines over romance speculations.

The most recent speculation, as noted, involves pop star Ellie Goulding. Although it's easy to shrug off this particular rumor as simply another Pippa Middleton-style story, the details that are being shared seem to possibly point to a real relationship between the beauty and Harry. Vanity Fair notes the information that has come forth from supposed reliable sources in regards to Ellie and Harry's interactions of late.
"The two both took part in the Audi Polo challenge over the weekend, and, per The Sun, were "all over each other" at the after party. 'Harry was really going for it after the polo—he was drinking and dancing.' There is, delightfully, more to this tale! 'They were seen having a kiss before Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day. Ellie left about five minutes later.'"
However, it is a well-known fact that Ellie Goulding has been friendly with the royals over the years. Let's not forget the beauty sang at William and Kate's wedding back in 2011, and at this very event, Ellie was actually photographed hugging Harry. Therefore, the latest rumors about a romance between Ellie and Harry all based on their embraces and a friendly smooch, are not telling of a definite relationship.
It's likely a lot of pressure for Prince Harry to find a mate who will be up to the task of being in the constant spotlight and intended to carry on with perfection, much like Kate Middleton is expected to.
