(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Britain's Prince Harry said on Thursday (July 25) he would make sure his new nephew, Prince George Alexander Louis, born on Monday (July 22), would have 'fun' growing up. Prince Harry made the comments while viewing a photographic exhibition in London documenting the work of his Africa -based charity Sentebale, which works to help the vulnerable children of Lesotho. The prince said he was delighted by the new addition to the family, but joked that his brother, Prince William would have to take serious note of the high rates Prince Harry intends to charge for baby-sitting duties. "It is fantastic to have another addition to the family. I only hope my brother knows how expensive my baby-sitting charges are!" Prince Harry said he had already held the new prince who was 'crying his eyes out' when they first met. Asked what his mission would be as an uncle, Prince Harry said: "To make sure he has a good upbringing, keep him out of harm's way and make sure he has fun. The rest of it I leave to the parents." The new baby, born to Prince William and his wife Kate, is third in line to the throne and will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
