Aww. What an awesome uncle. In a new interview with the Sunday Mail, Prince Harry said the sweetest things about his nephew and niece, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Harry, who became fifth in line to the throne after the births of George and Charlotte, doesn't mind one bit that he was bumped down for the tiny royals. In fact, he's happy.

"The reason I am now fifth is because of my nephew and niece and I could never wish them away," Harry said in the interview. "They are the most amazing things ever." The prince, who's thought to be thinking of proposing to girlfriend Meghan Markle some time in the near future, also spoke about what he would want for his own children, should he ever have them. 

"I am determined to have a relatively normal life and if I am lucky enough to have children they can have one too," he said. "We don't want to be just a bunch of celebrities but instead use our role for good."

Word, Harry.

The prince also hopes to be a positive role model for George and Charlotte, helping to guide them as they grow up. In 2015, Harry told the Mirror that he would urge both George and Charlotte to be involved in the Armed Forces in the future. "I would definitely encourage George, and Charlotte if she wants to, to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces, guaranteed," he said. "It's done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it's the same for William."

Also, being intimately familiar with the pressures that come with being a royal, Harry wants his brother's children to try to enjoy their role as much as possible. "As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the [royal] role, because at first it's just pressure, pressure, pressure. If you're going to be doing it and you're having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they're smiling -- and what's the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?" he said. 

Going off of everything we've seen, Harry is one seriously cool uncle. And hey, maybe some time in the not-so-distant future, he'll give George and Charlotte a few equally cool cousins. 

We're waiting.
