Prince Harry 'delighted' with new 'sister' Kate
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.
