Prince Harry, although not a father himself, appears to be the perfect uncle and older cousin to the little ones that scurry around the royal events. If it’s not Prince George or Princess Charlotte, son and daughter to Prince Harry’s older brother Prince William, he’s entertaining, he’s keeping his cousin’s daughter, Mia, in stitches of laughter.

People shares about the event Harry attended on Saturday where he was able to see his cousin Zara and little Mia.
“The 31-year-old royal spent time this Saturday at the Beaufort Polo Club, in Gloucestershire, with his cousin Zara Tindall and her 2-year-old daughter, Mia – and Harry gave Mia a laugh-inducing tickle attack.”
Prince Harry was there in support of his older brother William who was playing in the Festival of Polo at Beaufort. Mia, along with her cousins George and Charlotte, all drew some attention recently when they were included in a portrait with their great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, for her 90th birthday celebration. The publication shares how the shot was taken so perfectly via Mia’s father, Mike Tindall, who spoke with Good Morning Britain.
“The Queen got it quite right when she told her, ‘Just hold the handbag now,’ and she did that, ‘It ended up being a great photo of her.It just turned out to be the right photo at the right time and it will be something we’ll always cherish, I think…’ “
As for Prince Harry, he has been front and center mainly due to the constant subject of the royal’s love life. It’s clear that royal watchers are keen to see the eligible royal bachelor settle down and put those fathering skills to good use. Harry has spoken out about his single life and stated that although he would like to settle down, it’s just not the right time in the present due to all the royal duties he has got on his plate.
Additionally, Harry feels pressured to find the perfect young woman to live up to the expectations of the royals, while constantly being in the spotlight and up for media scrutiny, much like Kate Middleton is.
For now we can all just sigh at the adorable sight of Prince Harry with the little ones and swoon over his seemingly easy-going and caring ways. Those easy-going and fun-loving characteristics of Harry are reportedly what keep his sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, at ease in the role she is expected to play.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward spoke about the bond that Harry shares with Kate and identifies that Harry likely sees Kate as being similar to his mother — a woman who was not born into this life of rules and decorum, but one she must navigate and adapt to while heavily in the public eye. The Mirror UK shares words of the expert on the bond.
“Harry is very sensitive to the fact that Kate had to come into this role and wasn’t born into it. He realises this is exactly what happened to his mother except his mother was much younger. He empathises with Kate and what she is going through. We know it is not as easy for her as it looks. She finds it quite difficult although she would never let on as she is too much of a pro. Kate and Harry giggle about silly things together and he is very gentle with her.”
Kate Middleton has done remarkably well taking on the role as wife to the next king and being the Duchess of Cambridge. The beauty has got her supportive husband Prince William by her side and her fun brother-in-law Harry to keep her at ease.
