Prince Harry has spoken for the first time since becoming an uncle.
The Prince, who now drops down to fourth-in-line, was speaking about his brother Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s first child, as he attended a preview of a photo exhibition which documents the work of his charity Sentebale, in London.

“I only hope my brother knows how expensive my babysitting charges are,” Harry, 28, joked.
As the Prince viewed the exhibition, which has been put together by Getty Images photographer Chris Jackson, he was asked about the latest addition to the family.
Harry revealed the mini monarch-to-be was “crying his eyes out” when he first met him, but proudly said it was “fantastic to have another addition to the family.”
The royal was also asked what his mission would be as uncle to Prince George.
“To make sure he has a good upbringing, and keep him out of harm’s way and to make sure he has fun,” he said. “The rest I’ll leave to the parents”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first child on Monday afternoon at 4.24, when Kate gave birth to Prince George at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their first child George.
The proud parents made their first appearance on Tuesday afternoon as they gave the world the first glimpse of the future king. As the couple left the hospital they could hardly contain their happiness as they showed off their little Prince.
Prince William joked he would remind George of his “tardiness” when he is older for making the world’s media wait, while Kate said the whole experience had been very emotional.
The couple are now staying at the Middleton’s family home in Berkshire as they enjoy the early stages of parenthood.
