Prince Harry raised a glass to Prince George at The Brown Cow in Fulham, according to this…
Prince Harry celebrated the arrival of nephew Prince George with a royal knees-up at a pub in London, it has been revealed.
The royal joined friends – including TV presenter Natalie Pinkham – at The Brown Cow in Fulham, and was heard cheering when news of the royal baby’s arrival was finally announced.
Already a fan of the venue – owned by friend and former Welsh Guards officer Mark Dyer – Prince Harry used the pub in January to mark his return from official duty in Afghanistan.
But it was a different celebration altogether last week.
Residents say they heard three cheers going up around the time Prince George’s birth was announced, and that Prince Harry held court at the lively gathering.
‘We could hear something was going on and we are several streets away,’ one told the Daily Mail.
‘Everyone was very excited and glad that Harry was there. We could clearly hear three cheers go up.’
Harry’s small celebration comes amid rumours he is planning a much bigger bash to celebrate his first nephew.
It’s thought the royal has asked Prince William and Kate Middleton’s permission to host a knees-up to celebrate Prince George’s arrival, and is ‘ecstatic’ to be an uncle.
‘Harry is all over this,’ a source told the Sun. ‘He has had calls made already and William has agreed to it. Kate is fine — it’s tradition.
‘He’s ecstatic to be an uncle and so proud.’
While Prince Harry plans a celebratory bash, it’s thought Prince William and Kate Middleton have been getting to know adorable Prince George at the sprawling Middleton family estate in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
Ahead of their trip, a Kensington Palace spokesman said: ‘This is now private and quiet time for them to get to know their son.’
Meanwhile, insiders say William and Kate’s little one has been showered with gifts and attention as he gets to know his family, with the royal couple changing nappies and feeding Prince George themselves.
The source added: ‘They want to be hands-on. Nannies will be kept to a minimum.’
We’re glad to hear it!
