Prince Harry talks about meeting his nephew for the first time at the Sentebale 'Stories of Hope' photo exhibition opening, saying that as an uncle, he will make sure Prince George 'has fun.'
Prince Harry apparently is excited to be an uncle to George Alexander Louis or Prince George of Cambridge. Speaking to reporters at the Sentebale photo exhibition opening on Thursday, July 25, Prince Harry said that he had cuddled the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they brought Prince George to Kensington Palace.
Prince Harry commented that it was "fantastic to have another addition to the family." He added that his newborn nephew "was crying his eyes out" when he came to visit. When he was asked about his mission as an uncle, the 28-year-old prince replied, "To make sure he has a good upbringing, and keep him out of harm's way and to make sure he has fun."
"The rest I'll leave to the parents," he continued. The helicopter pilot jokingly added, "I only hope my brother knows how expensive my baby sitting charges are!" When he was asked to describe his brother's bundle of joy, Prince Harry made gestures with his hands and said, "Well, he's about that long and about that wide."
In other news, Prince Charles, who visited Kemble Railway Station to officially open the station garden, received small toys and congratulatory cards from well-wishers following the arrival of his first grandson. A nine-year-old boy called George Austin met Prince Charles at the station. He told Telegraph, "I was asking him about the baby and he said it was great meeting him at the hospital."
"He said it was really fun being a grandfather. I was really hoping the baby would be called George, it is a great name," the boy added. Prince Charles appeared to be in a good mood as he conversed with children and adults at the event.
