Prince Harry laughed today when reminded that Kate Middleton's pregnancy will knock him down to fifth in line for the throne. "Great!" he said, visiting competitors-in-training at the Invictus Games in London for wounded soldiers, the Telegraph reports. "I can't wait to see my brother suffer more" with a second child, he added—cheekily, of course—about Prince William being a dad. If the Duke and Duchess have a girl, Harry said he'd "love to see him try and cope with that." On a more serious note, Harry said Kate was doing "pretty poorly" but was coping "the best she can." (She's said to be very sick with hyperemesis gravidarum.)

Harry also hoped the couple could "go through the process again with a little bit of peace and quiet." Asked whether he could offer his upcoming nephew or niece advice on being the younger sibling (to Prince George, in this case), he told reporters that "there’s never a strategy. I think George will be over the moon. I think he will be thrilled having another small younger brother or sister." The new baby will be sort of like Prince Harry in not being earmarked for a position in the monarchy, the BBC notes. Mom Diana used to say Harry was "the backup." (See why Prince William says it's been "a tricky few days.")
