Uncle Harry already has big plans for his new niece and nephew! The redheaded royal spoke to the Sunday Times about Prince William and Kate Middleton's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte

"I would definitely encourage George, and Charlotte if she wants to, to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces, guaranteed," Harry said. "And I know that William and Catherine would probably echo that as well, depending on the situation for them in those years to come."

Harry, 30, who is recently finished his training in Australia and is currently touring New Zealand, praised his time in the Armed Forces. 

"It’s done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it’s the same for William," Harry said, adding, "It’s hard to say anything else on that because, as a parent, it’s your choice."

And when it comes to living life in the spotlight, Harry has some other advice for the youngest royals.

"As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the role, because at first it’s just pressure, pressure, pressure," he said. "Just enjoy it and make the most of it. If you’re going to be doing it and you’re having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they’re smiling – and what’s the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?"

Some of that pressure includes constant questions about Harry's romantic life. The currently single royal joked about relationship status. 

"I’m no Bridget Jones," he said. "Bridget Jones? That's sad. No, for me, it's good… I'm not looking. It's cool." 

Harry split from longtime girlfriend Cressida Bonas in September 2014.
