Prince Harry says he’s “thrilled” that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their first child.
During an interview taped in Afghanistan – Harry shared, “Obviously I’m thrilled for both of them. It’s about time. I can’t wait to be an uncle.”
E! News reports he added, “I spoke to my brother and her, and they’re both very well and both very happy obviously. I think it’s very unfair that they were forced to publicize it when they were, but that’s just the media for you.”
Harry also said he hopes Kate will be able to maintain privacy during her pregnancy.
“I literally am very, very happy for them, but I just only hope that she and him—but mainly Catherine—hopefully that she gets the necessary protection to allow her as a mother-to-be to enjoy the privacy that that comes with. I seriously hope that’s going to be able to happen.”
Regarding his nude photo scandal – he admitted, “I probably let myself down. I let my family down, I let other people down. At the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy…The way I was treated by [the media] I don’t think is acceptable.”
