The Emotional Stages of Realizing Prince Harry Is Officially Off the Market

But after the initial excitement of another royal wedding on the way, the jealousy definitely sets in. If Prince Harry was going to marry a N.U. grad, I’d prefer it to be yours truly. Not to mention this means that all of the British royal family’s prime eligible bachelors are off the market.
