London: Prince Harry has received a marriage proposal at the start of a three-day tour of Chile from a TV reporter named Middleton.
Harry arrived in Santiago on Friday and during a brief walkabout in the country`s capital the 29-year-old Prince`s eye was caught by the TV reporter in the crowd wearing a tiara, The Telegraph reported.
"I like your tiara - very smart," Harry told the reporter.
Bernardita Middleton, a television reporter with a morning show on Chile`s Channel 13, replied: "I am a Middleton, like Princess Kate. I be your next wife Haaaaaary."
The Prince giggled sheepishly before moving swiftly on.
Prince Harry`s elder brother Prince William is married to Kate Middleton.
Middleton is not an uncommon name in Chile, thanks to immigrants who evidently have many descendants.
Prince Harry laid a wreath at a monument to the country`s founder Bernardo O`Higgins, himself the son of an Irish immigrant, among other engagements of his tour.
