Britain’s Prince Harry to miss royal baby’s birth
Britain’s Prince Harry is set to miss the birth of the royal baby.
It is believed the 30-year-old prince will still be undertaking his military duties in Australia and New Zealand later this month and may not be able to visit his new niece or nephew until mid May.
While Harry will arrive in Sydney on Monday (06.03.15) where he will begin a four week placement with the Australian armed forces, his sister in law, the Duchess of Cambridge, recently revealed her second child with her husband Prince William, was due to arrive “mid-to-end of April”.
It is thought the royal will return to Europe to attend the Anzac dawn service in Gallipoli with his father, Prince Charles, on April 24 and 25 but if the royal baby comes later than expected Harry will be forced to return down under before he can meet the tot for the first time.
Harry had been on hand to greet his nephew Prince George in person when his brother welcomed his son into the world in July 2013.
He said shortly after the birth: “When I saw him he was crying his eyes out like all babies do I suppose.
“But it’s fantastic to have another addition to the family.
“I only hope my brother knows how expensive my babysitting charges are.
“I want to make sure he has a good upbringing, keep him out of harms way and make sure he has fun.”
