Prince Harry continues his search for a lady...

People Post

Saturday, March 17, 2012

He's recently opened up about the difficulty of finding a mate who isn't scared off by his 'job' as a member of the Royal Family. But it didn't look as though Prince Harry was having too much difficulty attracting the opposite sex while partying in London last night. The 27-year-old was seen chatting to a blonde beauty outside the Brompton Club in South Kensington. The prince looked deep in conversation with a pretty girl sitting on the steps outside the club smoking a cigarette. Wearing a white dress with black tights, Harry's companion looked understandably absorbed in their chat, though also a little worse for wear for her night out. Harry looked composed in a smart blue shirt and black trousers. But the soul-searching young prince has revealed his fear that women are scared off by his 'job' in the Royal Family and said he sometimes longed to be 'normal'. Although he is one of the world's most eligible bachelors, Harry hinted that he has struggled to find a girlfriend who was willing to take on a public role at his side. In a candid interview on US television, he was asked if being royal lived up to its image. Laughing, he replied: "No, not at all, ha ha — as any girl would ever tell you. It's sort of, 'Oh my God, he's a prince'. But no. The job that it entails — I mean look at me, I'm 27 years old." On his chances of marriage, he added: "I'm not so much searching for someone to fulfil the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on." Harry's only long-term relationship was with Chelsy Davy, 26, and finished in 2009 after five years.

'It's real, serious, grown-up stuff'

On entering her fifth decade Jennifer Lopez is in the best shape of her life. The 42-year-old singer, actress and reality show presenter has graced the April cover of the US edition of Vogue magazine and the pictures show off her superb shape. Dressed head-to-toe in bright scarlet tones Jennifer not only highlights her fiery personality but also her flawless figure. On the cover of the magazine she is seen gazing into the camera displaying her youthful face accentuated by her bright red lips. In the dramatic image the skirt of her chiffon dress blows up behind her, making her appear as if she is literally on fire. And in some ways she is - her career as a reality judge has gone from strength to strength appearing on American Idol and also on QVIVA: The Chosen. She is still working on her music and has also branched out into fashion and fragrance. But she admits in the accompanying interview that the breakdown of her marriage to singer Marc Anthony has been very painful. The 42-year-old superstar sat down with Vogue for an in-depth interview, and revealed that she's still in horrible pain over the split. During the chat, writer Jonathan Van Meter brought up Anthony 'drinking cans of beer and chain-smoking Newports' at a photo shoot with the fashion magazine seven years earlier, which prompts Jennifer to talk. She told him: "He's still doing it! Look we are total opposites that way. I'm used to that from growing up where I did. The men kind of drink beer and smoke cigarettes, and women kind of like...don't. But those things were not the issue so much. 'It became about something else," she added. "Without going into's just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it's emotional sometimes and difficult." She added: "We're still friends - and we're parents but it's going to take time. It's tough. But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we're handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids." Earlier this year it was claimed her concerned husband Marc Anthony told the superstar to see a psychiatrist to find out the reason she is incapable of being alone.

George Clooney arrested

George Clooney was this week taken away in handcuffs after being arrested at a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington. The 50-year-old actor, his father Nick and a number of other protesters had been given three verbal warnings by police not to cross a police line outside the embassy before being taken into custody. They had accused Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, of provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains in the county's border region with South Sudan. "We are here really to ask two very simple questions," the academy-award winning actor had said shortly before his arrest, according a report on CNN. "The first question is something immediate — and immediately we need humanitarian aid to be allowed into the Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world." Clooney added that the second thing he was there for, "is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them." Clooney said that he hopes to draw more attention to the issue and is impressed with President Barack Obama's personal engagement on it.
