8 Reasons We Think Prince Harry Will Make A Great Dad
The birth of his baby niece Princess Charlotte has hit our Harry hard. We've always known the 30-year-old Prince is great with kids, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their second bundle of joy to the world, William's younger brother has been getting seriously broody on us! Whilst on tour of New Zealand, the Prince has opened up about wanting to settle down and start a family. In honour of the announcement, here's exactly why we think Harry will make a GREAT father!

1. 1. He's a proven softie.
The Prince admits he didn't see any press coverage at all of his niece's birth, but was chuffed by the two photos that his big brother sent over to him straight after the birth. During his royal duties the Prince is used to meeting babies, but his new niece naturally holds a special significance to him: "I'm so looking forward to seeing her, to meeting her and to holding her" he told 'Sky News'.
2. 2. He may be a Prince by he's still a big kid at heart.
Whereas his older brother has had to the shoulder the responsibility of the first born, Harry has been free to enjoy the perks of being a royal and meeting some of the world's most famous and interesting people.
3. 3. He's his brother's closest confidant and he has his back in everything.
There's only just over two years between Prince William and Prince Harry and the two boys have been thick as thieves since they were young. Prince Harry was best man at his big bro's wedding to Catherine Middleton and has always been his close confidant. Plus doesn't he look dapper in the military get up.
4. 4. He supports and is Patron to several charitable causes that are close to his heart.
Prince Harry takes his royal duties very seriously and his title allows him to invest his time and energy into causes that are very dear to his heart. The 30-year-old focuses a lot of his energy on supporting disadvantaged youngsters, orphans and vulnerable young people.

5. 5.He's adored by Head's of State, (and let's be honest - we all want Michellle Obama to be our BFF!)
Loved by the nation's people and the rich and famous alike, Harry seems to accumulate friends wherever he goes. Nevertheless it's not just us Brits who feel like Harry's one of our own, he manages to woo world leaders too! First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama gave him a hero's welcome and a glowing tribute when he visited the White House on a tour of America" We are absolutely thrilled he could be with us today" she gushed. Well any friend of Michelle's… Picture: Getty
6. 6. He's got killer moves…and you know they say about a guy with good dance moves ;)
Do we really need to elaborate on this one?
7. 7. He's an animal lover. Aww!
The Prince has joined his father and brother in call to protect Africa's critically endangered wildlife and is also a keen conservationist and horse rider. We love how he paused to say "hello" to Shenkin, the goat regimental mascot of the 3rd Battalion at the 50th anniversary screening of Zulu in London. Picture: PA
8. 8. And last but not least - he's brilliant at getting stuck in with the kids.
Perhaps our favourite thing about the Prince is that everywhere he goes, he's is always smiling. The fifth in line to the throne certainly isn't one to stand on the sidelines and watch: "Tours like this are great fun, hopefully I'm doing all right by myself. It would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure" the Prince recently revealed in a candid interview with 'Sky News'. Picture. Getty
