The life of Prince Harry has many a twist and turn. The dubious parentage! The mother’s tragic early death! The Nazi costume! The endless parade of high society blonde girlfriends! The butt-naked Vegas photos! It would be easy to write Harry off as a spoiled, rich idiot — and, well, that would probably be fair. But in my opinion, he’s the most relatable member of the royal family: unlike his dullard brother and dad, Harry is known for having fun, making very public mistakes, and all around seeming like a real human.
He’s always struck me as someone who genuinely seems to enjoy his philanthropic endeavors with orphaned children, disabled veterans, and people suffering from AIDS. More importantly, people seem to like him.
In honor of his 30th birthday today, here are 30 good reasons to love Prince Harry:

My personal feelings on the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their second child, announced this morning, are best summed up as follows: Brangelina Baby #7 > Royal Baby #2 > Gosling Baby #1
In other words, I am less excited about a second royal baby as I would be about the announcement of yet another Brangelina baby, but more excited than I was about Eva Mendes being pregnant with Ryan Gosling’s spawn.

It’s not enough to live in a world with Kate Middleton and Prince William impersonators, or a prematurely-canceled television show devoted to a Prince Harry “doppelganger” trying to trick a bunch of dumb American women into believing he’s the real royal. Now we gotta drag the baby into it, too. Meet Freddie Minnis, an 11-month-old baby boy from Essex in the UK who is a Prince George lookalike. What that means beyond being a publicity stunt for the website which hosted the lookalike contest, I don’t know, but I’m sure Freddie’s mum is relieved she can put this kid to work pronto. Although … they both just look like regular babies to me. [Daily Mail UK] [Left image via Daily Mail UK; right image via Getty]
A TV program in terrible taste, on which a young man who looks nothing like Prince Harry posed as the eligible royal, has been unjustly and unfairly canceled by Fox. Yes, “I Wanna Marry Harry” is dunzo after only a few episodes. Entertainment Weekly reports that as of next week, “Harry” will only be available online on Fox.com and On Demand. The dating competition has been pulled because it was “hammered by critics” and “largely ignored by viewers.” WELL, IT WASN’T IGNORED BY ME. I watched that trash every single week while it was on (and I will have to watch on Fox.com to find out who wins Fake Harry’s heart). Here are just a few photos of the real Prince Harry describing exactly how I feel about this news: Keep reading »
