It looks like Prince Harry better watch his back. The royal prince is not the only uncle in Prince George’s life, and it looks like he’s not the only fun one either. The notoriously mischievous prince has a little competition when it comes to being the fun uncle to the heir to the English throne; Kate Middleton’s brother James.
James Middleton has it in his sights to be the fun uncle to the little prince and his unborn niece or nephew, and he’s not going to let anyone get in his way (he’s talking to you Prince Harry).
“I still see Prince George as my nephew. I just want to be the best uncle possible. Like any uncle wants to be, I want to be the cool uncle. The fun uncle…that what sort of I’ll always try and be,” said Middleton in an interview with ABC. So he didn’t exactly call Prince Harry out by name, but we want to read between the lines and we like the idea of an “uncle” competition between the two British men. It sounds positively delightful.
While he was sitting down with ABC, he talked about his sister, the Duchess of Cambridge. “She’s better. I mean, it’s not unknown that she suffered from this acute morning sickness. Fortunately she is, I think, on the mend. It’s wonderful to have another niece or nephew on the way,” he said. Though he would not say anything about whether or not the new royal baby will be a boy or a girl, or even if the couple have found out yet themselves. Of course, they might just want to forgo finding out all together. Some couples do that and love the surprise they feel in the delivery room when they are given their new baby for the first time.
