"To have a big sister is very, very nice," said the prince. "I've gotten to know Kate pretty well but now that she's been sort of coming into the family I'm really looking forward to getting her under my wing," he added with a cheeky smile.

Harry went on to reveal how pleased his late mother, Princess Diana, would have been to see William settle down, saying she would have been "very, very proud," that he was getting married.
