Since Prince Harry went public with his relationship with American actress Meghan Markle, he's only addressed it once, through Kensington Palace's initial written statement last November.

The relationship is becoming increasingly serious with reports that the Suits actress is "waved right through" by security at Kensington Palace.

She has also closed her lifestyle website and is ending some of her business partnerships as she steps closer to becoming fully integrated within the royal circle.

So as their relationship intensifies, so does public interest and it was only a matter of time before Prince Harry was directly asked about it.

He was recently asked by Sky News reporter Rhiannon Mills if his happiness can be contributed to the "lady in his life" during an interview for his mental health awareness campaign, Hands Together.

"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?" the reporter asked.

Prince Harry at this point directed the conversation back to the Heads Together campaign that he's doing press for this week, along with Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"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," he said.

"But you're in a good place at the moment?" Mills tried again.

"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," Harry finished as he closed the line of questioning down with politeness and grace.
