London: Prince Harry has reportedly teased his elder brother Prince William for piling on the pounds as the second-in-line to the British throne settles into married life with wife Kate Middleton.
The 26-year-old has even dubbed William “Teletubby” because of his cuddly paunch, The Sun reported.
“William is very content as a married man and has been enjoying his food. He has put on a few pounds and looks very healthy. Unfortunately for him, Harry sees a bit of a spare tyre as ammunition — and immediately nicknamed ‘Wills the Teletubby’.
“He also asked his brother if he knows who has eaten all the pies. It’s typical banter from Harry,” a royal source was quoted by the British tabloid as saying.
Wills, 29, a search and rescue helicopter pilot based at RAF Valley in Anglesey, North Wales, has admitted to Harry, 26, that he may have to buy a new wetsuit for a planned surfing trip because his old one no longer fits.
His healthy appetite is said to have been encouraged by the Queen, who urges her grandson and new wife Kate to start the day with porridge.
The source added: “He may need a more forgiving fit but there is no suggestion he is really overweight. Kate loves it — she says it makes him cuddly.”
