You could barely turn on your laptop, scroll through Facebook or open a newspaper this week without seeing Prince Harry's name, what with Kate Middleton recently calling him 'brilliant' following his emotional revelation about seeking counselling, 20 years after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and news that his girlfriend Meghan Markle would be attending the upcoming nuptials of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews next month.

However, one thing the Prince has been shy to open up about in recent weeks is his blossoming relationship with his 35-year-old Californian girlfriend.

Well, until now that is.

According to Vanity Fair, during a recent interview with journalists to discuss the work he's been doing as a mental health campaigner for his charity, Heads Together, Sky News reporter, Rhiannon Mills, took the opportunity to ask the 32-year-old about his love life.

Mills commented: 'You seem in a really good place at the moment, you seem very focused on what you want to do, but you also seem to be very happy. Is that partly to do with having a lady in your life?'

With years of media training and having grown up in the public eye, Harry tactfully dodged the question, revealing: 'I think, I think the point that we've learnt over this campaign is that if you talk, if you're able and comfortable enough to be able to talk about certain issues, certain experiences, then you come out of it a far better person.'

But, that wasn't a good enough answer for the prying journalist who added, 'but you're in a good place at the moment?'

At this moment, Harry had the decision – divulge about his one-year-relationship with Markle, with whom he's rumoured to be moving in with and discuss his plans to propose to the actress, or keep shtum.

Unfortunately, the prince chose the latter.

'Yeah, of course, I'm in a good place, we're all in a good place and we want the UK to be in a good place as well,' he replied.

Well played, Harry. Well played.
