Will Prince Harry come out as gay after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth’s cousin Lord Ivar Mountbatten? It is pure speculation that the 32-year-old royal may soon follow suit like the 53-year-old senior aristocrat.
And if it really happens, Prince Harry will break the hearts of women worldwide, since he is one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
Morning News USA reported that Lord Ivar came out as the first openly gay royal. The senior English aristocrat, however, is still not fully comfortable with his sexuality. Lord Ivar, who has three daughters with his ex-wife Penny, has the blessings and support from all of them. According to him, it was tough for him to admit about being gay to his kids.
Being fifth-in-line to the British throne, if Harry comes out gay, it is likely to have a direct impact on the British royal family. The royals are known for their stiff upper lip – not discussing private matters in the public.
Though it is not known how the queen reacted to the news of her cousin, she most likely felt angry. Her youngest son Prince Edward is a very close friend of Lord Ivar; hence, she may have had an inkling of what was coming.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry made headlines in May when he played with an athlete’s nipple. The royal was seen pinching the nipple of athlete Ashley Coles, who was then competing in a volleyball match for the UK against Afghanistan, Pink News reported.
In 2013, when the ginger haired Harry was dating Cressida Bonas, he said that he may date a man if his relationship with women failed, Pink News reported. Harry celebrated his 32nd birthday privately on Thursday.
This year, Prince Harry does not have any girlfriend by his side. Last year, he ushered in his birthday with ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy in London.
In fact, Harry celebrated his birthday with his cousin Princess Eugenie and her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank at the queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland, People reports. The royal party enjoyed hunting in the Scottish highlands.
