Prince Harry is turning 35 today!

The second-born son to Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana has won many fans over the years – what better way to celebrate the Duke of Sussex than with all the times he’s melted hearts over the internet.

We’ve compiled five things that’ve made the internet totally fall in love with Prince Harry.

1.     He’s a rule breaker

Prince Harry broke royal protocol after he shut his own car door when he attended the recent fifth anniversary of the Invictus Games.

According to the Mirror, the prince might be following in the footsteps of his wife, Meghan, who made the same royal faux pas last year after she arrived at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

2.     His sweet honesty

Earlier this year the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and since then the royal dad has been settling into his role of fatherhood quite well.

During a recent Travelyst launch, the dad quipped that for the first time since his son was born he was able to have “the best night’s sleep I’ve had in the last four months,” Hello! Magazine reported.

3.     His unwavering love for Africa

The prince will soon be heading to South Africa with his wife and son for their long-anticipated royal tour of Africa.

Harry and Meghan are set to continue the legacy left in Angola by the duke’s late mother, Princess Diana, and, “focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa,” Marie Claire reported.

4.     His limber dance moves

During a royal tour in 2012 to Kingston in Jamaica, Prince Harry showed off some ace dance moves while grooving to the late Bob Marley’s hit song One Love, the Daily Mail reported.

5.     His love for his son

Like any proud parent, the prince couldn’t be happier to be called little Archie’s father.

"As I said, I am so incredibly proud of my wife, and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for," he said speaking to the media following Archie’s birth in May.
