Unlike his father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince William, Prince Harry had an uncharted future. While they were destined to be kings of the British monarchy, he was entitled to his own adventures. This certainly had made Princess Diana's youngest one the most eligible bachelor.

Prince Harry had his fair share of scandals during his naughty youth. As he approached the 30s, settling down was inevitable for him. The girls grew desperate to make a move on him. However, we all know how the story ended - or began!

Barbara Bush missed it!

Jenna Bush Hager recounted a hilarious attempt of playing cupid in the latest episode of The Today Show. In 2016, she was interviewing Prince Harry at the Invictus Games. There, she subtly hinted to the then-single Duke of Sussex that her sister Barbara was also available. He had playfully replied: "We can talk maybe off air".

As fate intervened, Harry's sensitive eyes made him wear sunglasses. Jenna also followed his lead and wore hers. Now, she recalls this would have been the main reason why her scheme failed. The mother-of-two admitted:

I felt like maybe if he could see straight into my eyes. That could have worked if my sunglasses weren’t blocking.

Another American beauty won him over

Soon enough, he started dating Meghan Markle and got engaged. In 2018, the love birds walked down the aisle in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. We are still in celebratory mode for their newborn son, Archie Harrison.

It's hard to even imagine someone else sharing life with Prince Harry now, isn't it? Share this and keep loving their Royal Highnesses!
