Prince Harryfeels a sense of relief following the birth of his nephew Prince George of Cambridge, especially since his father Prince Charles isn't pushing him to settle down soon and start a family of his own.

The 28-year-old royal spoke to Royal Marines and their families Friday during the unveiling ceremony of a new center at the HM Naval Base in Devonport, England.

According to People, while chatting with the Marines and their families, Harry was asked if he felt pressure from his father to start having children.

"My father is over the moon to be a grandfather," Harry said. "He's got one [grandchild] now. It will be fine. The pressure's off now."

While attending the opening of an exhibition last week in London, Harry told reporters he's made it his mission to make sure Prince George has fun as a child.

Also at the opening last week, Harry jokingly warned his brother William that he charges a rather high baby-sitter's fee.
