Budding thespian Prince Harry might have the beard of a Tribeca dad, but as he recently said during a 17-mile trek for Walking With the Wounded's Walk of Britain, he has the insides of a 31-year-old who's too legit not quite ready to commit.

Asked by ITV News whether he was "any closer" to settling down, Bad Uncle Harry said (via E! News) "No. You know, at the end of the day, there are 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."

Speaking with the Mirror while puffing along at the same event, he called his late mother Princess Diana the inspiration for this charity work.
"It's equally important, if not more so, to do the stuff behind the scenes," he said. "It's something that our mother 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."
Spoken like a grounded (busy) dude who's just waiting for the right girl to come along. 🙋
