Prince Harry: Royal life no fairytale; sometimes William and I wish we were normal

LONDON - Prince Harry has told a TV interviewer that sometimes he and Prince William wish they were just normal instead of royals.

He spoke to CBS News after a 10-day trip to the Caribbean and South America representing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, at Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The successful trip marked Harry's first extended solo tour on behalf of the queen.

Harry's comments received wide attention in the British press Wednesday when he noted that it would be hard for a potential serious girlfriend to put up with his royal role.

He says it would be difficult to find someone willing to take on the challenge.

The 27-year-old son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is receiving advanced combat helicopter training.
