Proud uncle Prince Harry told reporters royal baby Prince George is 'fantastic'
Proud uncle Prince Harry has told reporters his number one duty when it comes to royal baby Prince George is to make sure he ‘has fun’.
The party-loving Prince also said he wants to keep the tot ‘out of harms way,’ and joked: ‘the rest I’ll leave to his parents’.
Speaking after his first meeting with Prince William and Kate Middleton’s little one – where he was handed several gifts for the newborn – Harry said the baby was ‘about this long and that wide,’ and a ‘fantastic’ addition to the family.
‘When I saw him he was crying, which is just like all babies, I suppose’ he said.
He added: ‘It’s fantastic to have another addition to the family.
‘I only hope my brother knows how expensive my baby sitting charges are!’
When asked what his duties as an uncle would be, the royal replied: ‘to make sure he has a good upbringing and to keep him out of harm’s way and make sure he has fun.
‘The rest of it I’ll leave to the parents.’
We do love Prince Harry.
Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George were visited by Prince Harry before they left for Bucklebury on Wednesday, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace confirmed.
Pippa Middleton and boyfriend Nico Jackson, James Middleton and the Queen also visited the new arrival as he settled into Kensington Palace.
Afterwards, the happy family set off for Kate’s parents’ home, the sprawling Bucklebury house, in the small village in Berkshire, to enjoy some and peace and quiet, and ‘get to know’ their little one.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: ‘This is now private and quiet time for them to get to know their son.’
It’s thought Prince William will spend his two weeks of paternity leave with his wife and son and the Middleton family home, but insiders say Kate Middleton could spend up to the first six weeks after the birth of her first child away from the spotlight – before returning to Anglesey or London.
The £4.85 million seven-bedroom Georgian manor, which the Middleton family purchased last year, comes with 18 acres of land, and ‘fantastic views’.
Certainly fit for a Prince…
