Prince Harry is once again going to be uncle to a newborn baby, as the Kensington Palace announced that his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child. This will be the newest member of the royal family, a new sibling to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. US Weekly reported that he was very delighted for the couple. He said with a thumbs-up sign, “Fantastic! Great! Very, very happy for them!”

Apparently, Kate Middleton’s pregnancy has repercussions on Prince Harry in a very major way. First, the arrival of the third baby will require him to move over as the sixth in line to the throne, to give way to the newborn, reported.
