One minute he's saying he wants kids and a family, the next he's slapping his muscles in military gear: Prince Harry is certainly ensuring he maintains his most eligible bachelor status.

The Prince already dazzled his Australian fans while on tour, even giving one 21-year-old fan a kiss on the lips.

Now, as he continues his tour of the region in New Zealand, Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, has embraced Maori culture and taken part in a military haka.

The haka, made famous by the New Zealand rugby team, is a traditional war cry or dance performed by the Maori people.

You can watch Prince Harry's attempt at the famous Haka by watching the video below:

While Harry may appear a natural at the haka, he did spend 20 minutes learning the ceremonial war cry before performing in front of the world's media.

Harry, who was visiting the largest military base in New Zealand, told Sky News last week that he "would love to have kids" after his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a second child, Princess Charlotte.

“There come times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is, but I don’t think you can force these things, it will happen when it’s going to happen,” Harry told Sky News' royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills from New Zealand, where he is currently on tour.

“Of course I would love to have kids right now but there’s a process that one has to go through and tours like this are great fun.

“Hopefully I’m doing all right by myself. It would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure, but you know, time will come and whatever happens, happens.”
