Britain's Prince Harry thinks his busy work schedule has stopped him from being able to find his potential wife.

The 31-year-old royal - who has had two high-profile relationships since 2004 - believes his globe-trotting career has impacted his love life and he hopes the perfect woman will just "slip" perfectly into his life while he's busy with work.

He explained: "I'm not putting work before the idea of a family, marriage and all that kind of stuff. To be fair, I haven't had that many opportunities to get out there and meet people. At the moment, my focus is very much on work. But if someone slips into my life then that's absolutely fantastic."

However, the flame-haired hunk - the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip - hopes he has time to get to know the lovely lady to the point they're both comfortable before his love life is splashed across the front of papers.

He is quoted by the Sunday Times newspaper as saying: "If or when I do find a girlfriend, I will do my utmost to ensure that me and her can get to the point where we're actually comfortable with each other before the massive invasion that is inevitably going to happen into her privacy. The other concern is that even if I talk to a girl, that person is then suddenly my wife, and people go knocking on her door."

Meanwhile, Harry was left heartbroken in 2014 when he split from Cressida Bonas following two years of dating.

Prior to that, the prince was in a long-term relationship with Chelsy Davy from 2004 until 2011.
