William's Cheeky 'Congrats' To Brother Harry Following Birth

1 min read

Only a brother...

Prince William has cheekily welcomed his younger brother to parenthood in a way only an older bro could.

Willz celebrated the latest addition to the royal family saying he was "absolutely thrilled" about the birth of Harry and Meghan's first child.

"Obviously thrilled, absolutely thrilled, and obviously looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down,"he said ahead of an engagement in London on Tuesday. 

"I'm very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting," he added with a grin.

The boy, who has yet to be named, arrived early on Monday and is thought to have been born at Harry and Meghan's Frogmore Cottage home near Windsor Castle. But there are some reports claiming the baby was delivered in a London hospital.

Asked if he had any advice for his younger brother, father-of-three William laughed.

"Plenty of advice, plenty of advice, but no, I wish him all the best and I hope the next few days they can settle down and enjoy having a newborn in their family and the joys that come with that," he said.

The Duchess of Cambridge said it was a special time.

"Obviously with Louis and Charlotte just having had their birthdays it's such a great time of year to have a baby, spring is in the air," Kate said.

Sportsbet has released the most likely names with Alexander, James, Arthur and Spencer all coming in at under 10.00 odds. Philip, Arthur, Allegra, Charles, Gregory, Oliver and Edward make up the next few bets under 15.00.

It should also be noted that 'Thor' is technically on Sportsbet's list, but at 501.00 odds. 

So... it's not looking great.
