And though he was away when he found out about the news, he made sure to congratulate them from Afghanistan.
"I had a chat to them. I spoke to my brother and her, and they're both very well and both very happy obviously," he shares, adding, “I literally am very very happy for them, but I just only hope that she and him - but mainly Catherine - hopefully that she gets the necessary protection to allow her as a mother-to-be to enjoy the privacy that that comes with."
So is there any pressure on Harry now that his older brother is settled down and about to become a father? "I don't think you can ever be urged to settle down," he says. "If you find the right person and everything feels right, then it takes time, especially for myself and my brother."
