Now that Prince Harry is engaged, his big brother Prince William is hoping that the 32-year-old and his sticky fingers will finally stay out of his fridge. "For me personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop him from scrounging my food, which he's done for the last few years,” joked the royal during a visit to Norway on Wednesday (Nov. 29).
"Very excited and delighted for them both". Before leaving the ice rink in Helsinki today, The Duke commented on the announcement of Prince Harry and Megan Markle's engagement. The Duke is on a two-day visit to Helsinki, his first official visit to Finland. #RoyalVisitFinland coincides in the year the country celebrates its 100 Year anniversary of independence.
However in all seriousness, Kate's husband admitted that he’s “very excited” for Harry and his future sister-in-law. William said, “Delighted for the both [of them] and wishing them all the happiness in this very exciting time.” The Duke, 35, noted that his brother and Meghan, 36, are very much in love. "It's a fantastic process to go through. The engagement and then the buildup to the wedding," William said. "They've got a lot of happy times ahead of them. I think they're very caught up in the moment and I wish them all the happiness and success in planning the wedding. I hope it goes really well."
Following the couple's engagement news on Monday (Nov 27), Prince William and Kate released a statement via Kensington Palace saying, "We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together."
On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge publicly spoke to reporters about the pair’s recent engagement. "William and I are absolutely thrilled, it's such exciting news," she said during her visit to London's Foundling Museum. "It's a really happy time for any couple, and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment."
Appearing with Prince Harry in their first joint TV interview following their engagement announcement, Meghan praised the British royals for welcoming her so warmly into the family. Meghan called the Duchess of Cambridge "wonderful," while Harry added, "Amazing, as has William as well." Harry and his fiancée will say “I do” in May at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. The venue is described as a "very special place" for Harry, and is somewhere the couple had spent time together during their romance.
