Earlier this week, news of a new royal engagement broke the news. Prince Harry, once dubbed the “world’s most eligible bachelor” is now off the market. He proposed to Meghan Markle, an American actress, earlier this November.
Of course, when a huge event like this happens, everyone wants to know what the rest of the Royal Family thinks of the new engagement. Most of the responses are positive, at least. Prince William, Harry’s brother, has the absolute best reaction to the engagement.
When approached by reporters, Prince William shared, “We’re very excited and delighted for them both, and wish them all the happiness in this very exciting time. For me, personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Prince Harry dropping by to snag some food from William and Kate. Just earlier this year, a feature piece on Prince Harry by Newsweek shared a very similar story about the Prince.
Apparently, Harry's relationship with his sister-in-law Kate is the in-law relationship we all strive to have. “When she and William got engaged, Harry called her the big sister he never had. He often pops into their apartment at Kensington Palace, where she cooks him a meal—roast chicken is reportedly a particular favorite.”
Prince Harry does seem to love his roasted chicken, as that is the meal he and Meghan Markle were trying to cook when he proposed to her. Of course, they describe that they were “trying” to cook roast chicken, so it sounds like Kate’s roast chicken might still be his favorite.
Of course, Prince William is excited for more than finally having his kitchen to himself. He went on to share, “It’s a fantastic process to go through, you know, the engagement, the build-up to the wedding. So they’ve got a lot of happy times ahead of them and I think they’re very caught up in the moment, and I wish them all the happiness and success in planning the wedding. I hope it goes really well.”
We’re all looking forward to seeing another royal wedding. In the meantime, though, we can all look forward to another royal baby from Prince William and Kate.
