Prince Harry Says He Is Not in a Rush to Get Married

When Prince Harry was asked about when he plans to settle down and start a family in May, he said, "It will happen when it will happen." Prince William's 31-year-old brother, who has reportedly rekindled his romance with Cressida Bonas, reiterated that sentiment Wednesday on a 17-mile trek for Walking With the Wounded's Walk of Britain. Asked by ITV News whether he was "any closer" to settling down, Prince Harry replied, "No. You know, at the end of the day, there's a lot of things to get down before settling down. I've got another seven miles to walk now, which I'm really not looking forward to…Eight? Great! I think everyone looks forward to settling down, but in the meantime it's work as usual, so let's crack on."

Prince Harry previously took part in Walking With the Wounded's treks to the North Pole in 2011 and the South Pole in 2013. "It's equally important, if not more so, to do the stuff behind the scenes," he told The Mirror. "It's something that our mother [the late Princess Diana] did a lot of and that's the time you really get to learn, you get the experiences and you actually get the honest truth out of people."

In addition to supporting Walking With the Wounded, Prince Harry supports the Ministry of Defence’s London Personnel Recovery Unit, which enables wounded servicemen and women return to duty or transition to civilian life. He also meets injured soldiers at Headley Court, a medical rehabilitation centre.

"The Personnel Recovery Unit—wow! The kind of conversations I have and the experiences I'm getting and all the knowledge from these guys, it's second to none," Prince Harry said. "It's so crucial to be able to go down to Headley Court and strike up a relationship with these individuals that I can go back and forward to visit. If you want to learn the truth from people, like when I was in Africa for three months in the summer, sometimes you just have to go behind the scenes." As for Walking With the Wounded, he said, "I think people relate to the enjoyment value that myself, William and Catherine have with these guys. There's nothing worse than being involved with something you don't have any passion about."
