Prince William Hopes Harry Will Stay Out of His Fridge Now
No need to share that roast chicken anymore.
Like everyone, Prince William is excited about Harry's engagement to style icon-in-waiting Meghan Markle. But unlike everyone else, William has a particular reason for being even more thrilled about his little brother's upcoming nuptials.
"We're very excited and delighted for them both, and wish them all the happiness in this very exciting time," William told a reporter on Wednesday as he was leaving an ice rink, before telling us how he really felt. "For me personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop him scrounging my food, which he's done for the last few years." Oh, brother.

Apparently Harry is known to frequently stop by his brother and sister-in-law Kate Middleton's home. In a Newsweek feature published in June on the younger royal, it details how Harry "often pops into their apartment at Kensington Palace, where she cooks him a meal — roast chicken is reportedly a particular favorite." And of course, as fate would have it, Harry's proposal story involves the couple "roasting chicken" at home the night he got down on one knee.
Meanwhile, Middleton provided a much more sophisticated response to the royal wedding announcement.
"William and I are absolutely thrilled. It's such exciting news and it's a really happy time for any couple," Middleton said Tuesday at the Foundling Museum in London. "We wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment."
