It’s official: Prince William is the ultimate big bro. Prince Harry‘s older sibling did him a real solid when he was recently asked the question that happens to be on everyone’s lips… When are Harry and Meghan Markle going to get married?
One brave man puffed up the courage to question the Duke of Cambridge, 35, on his brother’s plans to marry during William’s latest royal outing. According to Paul Wright, the second in line to the throne did the most diplomatic thing he could think of when asked the question. “He just laughed — a nice laugh,” Wright admitted. While everyone’s favorite new royal romance was clearly not going to get any airtime, the father-of-two did dish that his son Prince George has inherited every child’s view on school… He’s over it!
Kate Middleton‘s hubby was chatting with fellow Thomas’s Battersea parent, mom-of-two Louise Smith, during the school drop-off when he shared the funny revelation. “It was really exciting meeting William,” she gushed. “He told me he’d just dropped Prince George off at school and he didn’t want to go. Sounds a bit like [my kids], really.”
Meanwhile, across the pond at High Park in Toronto, Harry was at the ready for another day at his beloved Invictus Games. The day before, the 33-year-old had stepped out publicly with girlfriend Meghan. The 36-year-old actress — who was fittingly wearing a white blouse called “The Husband’s Shirt” — was all smiles as she and her Prince took their romance public. With tongues wagging at the prospect of a potential engagement announcement, Harry made sure that the day was all about the athletes.
Attending the cycling event, Harry was completely in his element, cheering on the former servicemen and women. He proudly told the cyclists, “You’re all amazing. This is what it’s all about. The atmosphere has been incredible all week. For me, it’s always going to be about the atmosphere. Everyone’s really excited, they’re all here for you.” The royal was astounded by the grit of the athletes, who were competing in 80-degree heat. “Four miles, up and down,” he was overheard saying to one sportsman, “I just couldn’t deal with it.”

The self-proclaimed selfie hater chatted to partially blind veteran, royal navy aircraft engineer Jamie Weller. Jamie, with the help of his phone, was training to ride a stationary bike. Deciding that they definitely needed a happy snap, Harry staged a quick impromptu photoshoot. He also reconnected with old Invictus friends. Among them, the Prince chatted to technical sergeant Lara Mastel. Lara has underwent 15 operations for stage three breast cancer, and now she is in remission. Harry could wait to get the veteran a big cuddle!
Talking to the BBC, the royal explained just why the games are so important. “Invictus Games when it comes around once a year is my fix just as much as anyone else’s. Being here with all the competitors, being here with friends and families, meeting new faces and seeing some of the old faces as well — not old as in age but the old-timers — is amazing,” he said.

“I get a buzz out of it, everybody gets a buzz out of it. You’ve got all of these civvies walking around sucking up the atmosphere and hopefully they can walk away and it means something to them as well,” he continued. “It’s an amazing team to be proud of, so many new faces, new stories, some fantastic experiences for them to have going forward. It’s a joy for me to constantly meet so many new people and friends and family.”
