He didn't get married, isn't celebrating his Diamond Jubilee and wasn't involved in a gun scandal like his famous family members, yet Prince Harry has still managed to have quite a year since the royal wedding last April.
The year started out a little slow for Harry, as the hype of his brother Prince William's royal wedding (and Pippa Middleton's bum) obviously outshone him, but since that big day in April 2011, Harry's life has steadily picked up steam.
In fact, the 27-year-old prince has traveled the world, found love (and lost love), found love again (maybe), and done some super badass stuff like becoming an Apaches helicopter pilot. Prince Harry even packed in some drinking, dancing and Walmart shopping this year -- all while making us swoon every step of the way.
Though we probably won't be celebrating Harry's own wedding anytime soon -- although rumors often fly, he seems pretty content in his bachelor ways -- let's take a look back at a year in the life of William's adorable ginger brother.
