Prince Harry Hilariously Revealed He Heard Prince William Coo At Kate Middleton
In the book Harry: Life, Love, and Loss, royal author Katie Nicholl described the moment between Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton as affectionate, warm, and funny. And it also reportedly touched Prince William deeply.
During the Duke of Sussex's best man speech, he told the guests when he realized that Prince William was serious about his sister-in-law. He also revealed Prince William's nickname for his wife.
"The speech was peppered with Harry's classic sense of humor, and he ribbed his brother: 'William didn't have a romantic bone in his body before he met Kate, so I knew it was serious when William suddenly started cooing down the phone at Kate.' Famous for his mimicry, Harry then impersonated his brother calling Kate' Babykins', to much laughter from the guests. When he said the couple's decade-long romance was his inspiration, there was a shy smile from Chelsy, while Kate shed a tear," Nicholl wrote (via Mirror UK).

"Harry said William was the perfect brother. It was exactly how you would expect a best man's speech to be. He cracked loads of jokes about William. He called him a 'dude' several times. He kept coming back to it, saying 'What a dude,'" the source said.
King Charles III also made fun of Prince William during his own speech at the reception.
"The thing about growing older is that your children get taller than you so they can see your bald spots. Now in my case, I can see his," King Charles said (via Town & Country).
"You got there before Harry!" Prince William fired back.
