It was a good interview, and it's clear that Harry is quite relaxed now about finding the right girl. It's great to get his own perspective on his life now and some of the reasons why he decided to leave the army.

I'm glad he's getting good crowds in New Zealand. Harry's a genuine and modest individual, and I do think people respond to that.

As the latest discussion about Harry's comments re his love life have gone further than his trip to New Zealand, they have been moved to the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...5-a-38309.html thread. Please continue that discussion there.

There are some short youtubes of Prince Harry performing the Haka now online.

He's a good sport to have given it a go.

I found this full-length video. I am impressed he learned how to do the Haka so quickly (or did he know how do to it ahead of time).

As enjoyable as these pictures are, I can see why life is so difficult for a Number 2, touring the world like a zoo animal without substance, even worse in a miliary uniform, I feel sorry for Harry that he can't be or do what he would be really good at, a soldier like all the other normal guys. He'll never be a normal guy, yet he doesnt have a purpose.

I might be mistaken but I think even "normal" guys in the armed services get to a point where they no longer go into active combat. They go up through the ranks and pursue other paths such as strategy and command, teaching, and all those other things the higher up muckety mucks do. Although I think Harry would have been great at whatever he wanted to accomplish in the military, he realized himself that it was time to change courses and, like his father and his brother, forge his own path as a senior royal. Actually I think this will end up being an exciting time for Harry. He obviously thoroughly enjoys himself when he's out and about with people (there are just some things than can't be faked and Harry's facial expressions totally give him away) and I think he's got a lot of purpose to his life. Its just a matter of finding out exactly where he wants to focus his energies on the most. Africa is near and dear to his heart and I think his heart lies in his Sentebale in Lesotho. The welfare of his wounded comrades takes up another big chunk of his heart and that's one I've really admired him for. As he settles into finding out just what exactly he wants to focus on, there will be a better chance for him to fall in love and settle down and start his own family.

So, actually I see Harry as having the world as his oyster right now and just about anything is possible and our Harry gives 150% to whatever it is he's involved with. That's definitely going to work in his favor.

I saw his interview with Sky News and that pretty much what he said. He'd end up at a desk job and he doesn't want one.

The newspaper and TV reports I've seen Duchess of Durham, say he had about fifteen minutes in the gymnasium to learn it from scratch. Then the media were let back in to watch.

The Prince said he did it about ten or so times, and only got it completely right once.

Rob Jobson said on today's canoe trip that Harry practiced his Maori speech the whole way, he was so intent on getting the pronunciation correct.

Wow! 15 minutes, that is very impressive. I could tell he wasn't saying the words, but still, I'm sure it meant a lot to the Maori that he tried to assimilate to their culture. Yeah, Diana would have been so proud of him today with the Haka and giving his speech in Maori.

After being spotted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the Lindo Wing steps - and getting a personal wave - Royal photographer Arthur Edwards has ended up with Prince Harry's paint hand-print on his forehead in New Zealand!

I think they must like him.

What a wonderful tour very successful both in NZ and in his time in Australia. He's won many hearts we loved him before but I think we love him even more now. My brother said " he's really something that young Harry "
