Prince Harry looked decidedly nervous yesterday as a Chelsea pensioner quizzed the young Prince about his future marriage plans.
Harry, 26, who was best man at this brother William’s recent royal nuptials, visited 300 ex-soldiers at the famous Chelsea Hospital in London.
Harry, who was commemorating the hospital’s 1682 opening, was asked by 85-year-old William Titchmarsh: “When are you going to get married?”
“Not for a long time,” the Prince quipped, quickly followed by, “who put you up to that?”
The Independent reports that Titchmarsh joked shortly after meeting the Prince: “They’ll shoot me in the morning,” while a fellow resident said: “Put him on a charge Sergeant Major.”
Harry has just rekindled his on-off romance with 25-year-old Chelsy Davy and he reportedly whispered to her “you’re next” during his brother’s wedding in April. According to the Mirror, they also spent all night together at the wedding reception venue.
However, Now Magazine revealed last month that Chelsy, 25, is having doubts about becoming Harry’s bride.
A source who is said to be a pal of Chelsy’s said: “She adores Harry but doesn’t know if she’ll marry him as she isn’t sure the royal life is for her.”
“She’s told him she doesn’t want to be like Kate and Wills but wants him to at least show more commitment now,” they added.
