Prince Harry on Royal Baby: "the Pressure is Off" for Me to Have Kids Now
Uncle Prince Harry is in no rush to follow Prince William's lead! While visiting Plymouth Friday, August 2, -- for his first honorary military appointment -- the royal uncle revealed that "the pressure is off" for him to have children now following the birth of his new nephew, Prince George.
Though off the hook, Harry — who was bumped down to fourth in line to the throne after George's arrival -- has expressed his excitement since Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 31, welcomed their first child July 22. "It's fantastic to have another addition to the family," Harry said of little George, while speaking to reporters at the Sentebale "Stories of Hope" exhibition opening Thursday. July 25. "I only hope my brother knows how expensive my babysitting charges are," he joked.
At the Royal Marines Tamar reception Friday, Harry met with local dignitaries and VIPS and was presented with a Royal Marines dagger. He also took in a parade of the Marines of 1 Assault Squadron. "Typical British, we complain when it's too hot and we complain when it's too cold," he mused.
While Harry mingled with servicemen, servicewomen and their families, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were busy off completing Prince George's birth registry the very same morning. Middleton stayed back with her family in Bucklebury as new dad William traveled to Kensington Palace to sign it. The registry listed the new parents occupation as "Prince and the United Kingdom" and "Prince of the United Kingdom," marking the first time Middleton has ever been referred to as a Princess.
