Prince Harry is one hot commodity. Town & Country’s February issue — “Top 50 Bachelors: A Tell-All Survey of the Most Eligible Men in the World” – puts the regal redhead squarely on the cover and No. 1 on the list.

Simmer down, ladies. Harry will undoubtedly need to marry a woman with some blue in her blood.
It’s settled, then
