Prince William and Kate Middleton are launching the King’s Cup Regatta at Cutty Sark in Greenwich today, the day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a royal son. Of course, they couldn’t go for long without mention of their new nephew.
The Duke of Cambridge said he’s “absolutely thrilled” about his brother’s new addition and is “looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down,” according to Hannah Furness, royal correspondent for The Telegraph.
William continued, channeling his classic dad humor, “I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”
He also said he has “plenty of advice” for the new dad and added, “I wish him all the best. I hope in the next few days they can settle down and enjoy having a newborn in the family and all the sort of joys that come with that as well.”
William and Kate had already responded to the birth of Harry and Meghan’s baby in a joint statement with other royal family members yesterday. They, like the rest of their relatives, said they were “informed and are delighted with the news.”
The second in line for the throne is no stranger and throwing quips at his younger brother in the press. While responding to news of Harry and Meghan’s engagement in 2017, the Duke of Cambridge delivered standard congratulations but added, “For me, personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop him scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years.”
The future king isn’t the only royal who’s spoken out about Baby Sussex today. Prince Charles, who is headed to Germany with Duchess Camilla, said, “We couldn’t be more delighted at the news and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return,” according to Sky News reporter Rhiannon Mills.
And the Queen discussed the arrival of her eighth great-grandchild during an event at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip.
