  • Prince Harry visited his newborn nephew on his way to the WellChild Awards at the Dorchester Hotel last night, and explained how smitten he is with the tiny royal

    Prince Harry won over the audience at the annual WellChild Awards in London last night, by sharing stories about his newborn nephew.

    The Prince had spent the day with his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, first attending the funeral of their father’s friend Hugh van Cutsem in Brentwood, Essex, before visiting London’s Docklands to raise money in memory of 9/11 victims at a charity day. After Prince Harry told his brother off for flirting on the phone as they played stockbrokers, they headed back to Kensington Palace where Prince Harry enjoyed some cuddles with Prince George and a catch-up with his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge.

    Prince Harry told the children at the awards ceremony – held at the Dorchester Hotel – that being an uncle is ‘fantastic’. He told one award winner: ‘I’ve literally just seen him. It was the first time I’ve seen him smile.’

    One mum spoke to The Mirror, explaining: ‘He said he’d just come from seeing his nephew and he was having a bath, but normally when he sees him, he’s usually sleeping or crying.

    ‘He said it was the first time he’d seen him smile. He seemed quite pleased.’

    Heart. Aching.

    Duchess Kate travelled to London from Anglesey yesterday with Prince George and his nanny Jessie, and much to everyone’s surprise, stopped off at McDonald’s. The royal used the fast food chain’s bathroom on a quick pit stop before returning to the city.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make their first official red carpet appearance since the birth of their first son at the Tusk Conservation Awards in London tonight. Here’s hoping for more tales of Prince George‘s smiles.
