Ever since Prince George was born back in July, Prince Harry has proven himself to be a pretty loving uncle. Good ol' Prince William even told the press back in August that his little prince reminds him of Harry. Now, you would think that, with William being so affectionate and all, Harry'd be supportive of his brother. He'd praise him for all those long hours he spends up with George in the middle of the night, and supporting Kate Middleton as she learns how hard (yet rewarding) it can be to be a new mom. Nope, instead -- Prince Harry makes fun of his brother.
Currently on a trip to Antarctica as part of the South Pole Allied Challenge, Harry recently told the press that he thinks his brother is jealous of his travels. "I think he's just quite jealous I managed to get away from a screaming child," Harry jested.
A screaming child? Oh come on, Har. You're not being that supportive, are you?
Sure, babies cry. Heck, they cry a whole lot. But that little baby, that little bundle of joy, he's so much more than those tears. And that's something that I am sure Prince William and wife Kate have come to realize.
To the royal couple, Prince George is a major part of their lives. Does that mean they don't need a break every once in a while? Of course not. But it means that opposed to someone who doesn't understand the joys of fatherhood (ahem, I'm lookin' at you Harry) -- the tears don't faze them as much. The tears are such a SMALL part of what being a parent involves.
Harry, I enjoy you. I really, really do. But maybe think again before dissing your nephew like that, eh? Especially since I'm sure your brother has nothing but sweet things to say about you despite your antics.
As a new parent, after a few months, did you get tired of all the late nights and crying fits? Was it all worth it?
