Like any good uncle, Prince Harry says he wants to keep his new nephew, Prince George of Cambridge, out of harm's way -- but also make sure the little one has some fun, too.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday at the opening of "The Sentebale: Stories of Hope" exhibition in London, the 28-year-old said that when he met George Alexander Louis, the little one was "crying his eyes out, like all babies."

"It's fantastic to have an addition to the family," he added, joking, "I only hope my brother knows how expensive my babysitting charges are!"

Asked what his mission will be as an uncle, Harry replied, "To make sure he has a good upbringing, and keep him out of harm's way and to make sure he has fun. The rest I'll leave to his parents."

Those parents -- Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge -- welcomed the baby boy on Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The couplebrought him home from the hospital the next day, staying overnight at Kensington Palace. The little prince met great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II for the first time on Wednesday, before the new family left the palace and traveled to the home of Kate's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, in the English village of Bucklebury.
