Prince Harry Preps to Be an Uncle, Entertains 10-Month-Old Baby at Event in Colorado
Prince Harry is getting ready for baby! The soon-to-be uncle of brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton's first child was spotted playing with a 10-month-old baby boy at a pre-Warrior Games brunch in Colorado Springs, on Saturday, May 11.
The 28-year-old royal cooed and played with Julia Wilkowski's son Sebastian at the event where wounded servicemen and women from the U.S. and Britain participate in sporting events. "He said, 'It's great to meet you and asked, 'Who is this little guy?'" Julia, 37, recalled. "And, 'You have a lot of hair for a ten month old.'"
"He made silly faces and then he started blushing a little bit because he didn't think Sebastian would grab him," she added. "Then Harry went to walk away and came back with another funny face. It was cute."
Wilkowski's husband Kip, a 43-year-old retired air force F16 pilot, said, "He is wonderful with children."
And Julia suspects that Harry will have no trouble being a good uncle to his future nephew or niece. "It was just so cool, very genuine. I think he'll make a great uncle," she said. "He was holding his hand -- all the things you do with babies."

Later that day, Harry played on the U.K. team in a seated volleyball match against the U.S. as part of the Warrior Games. The young royal battled Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor and paralympian Kari Miller. After May-Treanor missed one of Harry's shots, she got up and chased him around the court. "He out-reached me -- I will get him next time," she said. "He needs to get to the beach and play me. I'll get him!"
Miller said Harry was a "quick learner" and very nice. "He made jokes and stuff," she shared. "He was a cool guy."
