    >>> and now to "today's" 25th birthday of prince harry . he's grown into a popular soldier prince who today stands to inherit a big chunk of his late mother's estate. nbc's donna friesen is in london. donna, good morning.

    >> reporter: good morning, natalie. yes, being a prince-made him quite a catch, but now as he turns 25, prince harry inherits part of his mother's fortune. there's no big party planned, no lavish spending, but there are rumors he may be rekindling an old romance. prince harry , like his brother, learned early that being a prince can be both a blessing to his every false move whether it was stumbling out of a nightclub, smoking pot or guzzling beer, harry has grown up in the spotlight. but with time, he's matured. being on the front line in afghanistan and now turning 25 seems to have found his feet.
