A new royal baby means Prince Harry is even less likely to be king – and the flame-haired prince couldn't be happier.

Prince George is third in line to the throne and his new sibling will be fourth in line, pushing William's younger brother Prince Harry down to fifth place.

Harry joked that it was "great" that he would have less of a chance of becoming king. "I can't wait to see my brother suffer more," Harry said, adding that he would love to see William "try and cope" with a girl. "I think George will be over the moon. I think he will be thrilled having another small younger brother or sister," Prince Harry said.

The pregnancy was announced earlier Monday in an official statement from the palace, which said that Queen Elizabeth II, William’s grandmother, was “delighted” at the news.

“Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child,” the palace said.

William and Kate made no secret of wanting another child, and it is the convention in aristocratic and royal families to have at least two -- an heir and a "spare" who can inherit the family title and estate in case the heir dies.

"I hope it's a girl," one woman wellwisher told AFP outside Kensington Palace. "An heir and a spare! So he's sorted, isn't he?"
