Oh, Uncle Harry! While touring Chile, Prince Harry was questioned about his baby nephew Prince George—Us Weekly's Omid Scobie is one of the journalists touring South America with the royal. The 11-month-old son of Prince William and Kate Middleton has made some big strides in his first year, and his uncle has noticed. 

Harry spoke to Virginia Araya, a presenter on the national radio station Infinita, on Friday, June 27, about the third in line to the throne. 

"I asked him what George was like," she told Us Weekly. "He said, 'He's growing up. He is walking, and he has big, chubby cheeks. He looks like a young Winston Churchill." 

The former British prime minister was one of the most noted political leaders of the 20th Century, but he wasn't known for his looks so Prince George's parents might not take Harry's joke as a compliment. 

The British royal is currently touring Brazil and Chile, and addressed the crowd at the British Ambassador's Residence in Santiago on Friday. 

"Chile has a fascinating history and an amazing social and geographical variety. Both my father and brother have spent time here and have told me many wonderful stories; not surprisingly, it is a country that I have wanted to visit for some time," Harry said in his speech. "I am very grateful for the warm welcome I have received since arriving last night. It is great to see such strong ongoing relations between our two countries."
