Prince Harry was in a jovial mood when he recently met conservationists. The British royal joked that his bodyguards follow him everywhere, making it difficult for him to date someone.

The 30-year-old prince was speaking to conservationists about their families as he helped track lions in the Palmwag Reserve in Namibia’s north-west Kunene region, Hello reported. When they quizzed him about his personal life, he told them that his bodyguards are with him round the clock -- even when he is with his girlfriend. Harry, however, added that he knew “how to handle them.”

Harry also talked about his little niece, Princess Charlotte, whom he could only meet three weeks after her birth. He regretted that he could not attend the christening ceremony of Prince William's second child. He joked how he is baby Charlotte's "bad uncle."

“[The Prince said] ‘What a bad uncle I am! I should really be there. But today I am here, this is where I want to be,'” said Simson Uri-Khob of Save the Rhino. He shared these details this in an interview on Sunday, according to Us Magazine.

He wanted to see the king of the jungle and his wishes were fulfilled by two vets, a Namibian police officer and Simson. The former Army helicopter pilot is currently living his African “dream.” He is in South Africa on a three-month stint to do voluntary work for conservation of wildlife. Harry also visited countries such as Tanzania and Namibia as part of his involvement in anti-poaching and conservation activities.

He was accompanied on his visit to the park by his royal protection officer and the godfather of Prince George. In a bid to learn about rhinos, he spent time with Dr Peter Morkel, a world renowned rhino expert. The veterinarian showed him how to painlessly remove horns to save the species. Meanwhile, the rangers gushed about Harry, revealing that the Prince was very gentle with the animals and also helped in feeding and taking care of them.
