The fourth in line to the British throne turns 30 today, September 15, 2014.

In an interview with ITV News, the royal reflected on the moment, admitting he felt 'old!'

'I think 30 is one of those first milestones when you drive through a village and see the 30 mile per hour sign,' he told the outlet. 'It's that constant reminder going 'I am actually quite old.'

Harry may feel 'old,' but a few years certainly hasn't done anything to hurt the dubbed 'party prince,' who appears to have come into his own of late -- or at least his charitable jaunts have made it seem that way.

So what does the prince want for his birthday?

According to NBC, 'a Labrador and a country cottage' -- two simple requests considering the riches he's set to inherit on his 30th.

Like William, the prince was left 6.5 million pounds by his late mother, Princess Diana, according to multiple sources.

According to City Wire, Diana had granted them access to the funds when they turned 25; however, the High Court revised their age of inheritance to age 30.

Depending on investments, according to Danny Cox, head of financial planning at Hargreaves Lansdown, the original 6.5 million pound sum could have as much as doubled to 13 million pounds.

Minus an additional inheritance tax Harry is required to pay, Cox says, the Prince is likely looking at an inheritance of 10.7 million pounds ($17.3 million dollars).

According to Woman's Days, the Prince has had access to the interest on his mother's fortune since he was 25 as well as the 2 million pounds that he inherited from Queen Elizabeth.

Additionally, according to Hello! magazine, the Princess' wedding dress is being returned to her sons, part of her request that some of her precious belongings be handed back to her sons when they turned 30.

And luckily, the million-dollar royal is still on the market.

The prince reportedly called it quits with longtime girlfriend Cressida Bonas in April or May, according to varied sources, after two years together, allegedly surprising even those 'in the know.'

According to recent reports, Harry is now dating Camilla Thurlow.
