"There come times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is, but I don't think you can force these things -- it will happen when it's going to happen," he says about his desire to be a family man. "Of course, I would love to have kids right now, but there's a process that one has to go through and... tours like this [he's currently on a tour of New Zealand] are great fun."

Harry also, of course, wants to find the right girl.

"Hopefully I'm doing all right by myself," he muses. "It would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure. But, you know, time will come and whatever happens, happens."


Harry on Life, Love and the Army

Prince Harry notes that he's at a "crossroads" in his life, following his decision to leave the British military in June. Though he's unsure about his future, he does know that he wants to earn a salary like everyone else, and "work with normal people."

"This part of the role is fantastic but I and William -- both of us -- feel as though we need to have a wage as well; to work with normal people, to keep us sane, to keep us ticking along," he says. "As long as people back home ... know that they can trust me, that I'm making the right decision and that whatever it is, it will be something that means I can give something back."

The busy royal -- who was in Australia at the time of his niece's birth -- is also anxious to meet the newborn.

"I'm so looking forward to seeing her, to meeting her and to holding her," he says. "It's fantastic news for both of them [Prince William and Kate]. So I'm thrilled."
