Prince William’s Reaction To Prince Harry’s Engagement Is Hilarious

Now that's brotherly love!

There is much to celebrate for the British royal family at the moment. Not only is Kate Middleton expecting her third child, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced on Monday that they are engaged. Naturally, Prince William is happy for his brother and his new fiancée, but he’s excited for more than one reason — and it seems like a classic older brother response.

While visiting Finland, a reporter asked William to comment on his brother’s recent news. He said, “We’re very excited, delighted for them both. We’re wishing them all the happiness in this very exciting time,” which is exactly the response you’d expect.

But then he added, “For me personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years!”

So, clearly, Prince William is happy to know the bachelor life, fridge-raiding and all, is finally over for his little brother. Too funny!

When Markle and her fiancé sat down to tell the story of their engagement, they revealed they had been cooking a dinner at home alone when Prince Harry proposed. So, the separate dining has already begun for the happy couple — which is surely appreciated by William and Kate!

On the day Prince Harry and Markle announced their engagement, they shared with a BBC reporter all about the evening of the proposal. “We were just trying to roast a chicken and it just was an amazing surprise,” Markle said. “It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”

You can watch the full interview below:

Scrolling through Markle’s Instagram, it’s clear to see that great meals will be in the couple’s future. Not only did she roast a chicken the night she got engaged, but she also made the most perfect-looking turkey for Thanksgiving. With a wife who loves to cook, there will be no more eating from another person’s fridge for Prince Harry indeed!

People online are laughing at Prince William’s honest response to the engagement news, and some can even relate to the way he felt.

“I’m like 90 percent sure my dad had the same ‘stay out of my refrigerator’ reaction as Prince William when he found out I was getting married,” one Twitter user shared.

Others found this response to be the perfect display of brotherly love.

We couldn’t agree more! Here’s to Prince Harry and Markle and all of the amazing food they’ll keep in their own fridge!
