Prince Harry said Tuesday he was "delighted" that his older brother Prince William had asked girlfriend Kate Middleton to marry him, saying it meant he would get a "sister", which he had always wanted.

The 26-year-old army officer has been busy in helicopter flying training throughout the day, his spokesman said.

"I am delighted that my brother has popped the question!" Harry said in a brief statement.

"It means I get a sister, which I have always wanted."

Harry, known as Lieutenant Wales within the military, is training to become a helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps, flying an Apache attack chopper.

He is close to William, 28, a search and rescue helicopter pilot with Royal Air Force.
