Prince William brands brother Prince Harry the ‘official Royal gooseberry’
(news.sawf.org) - British royal Prince Harry has been branded 'the official Royal gooseberry' by none other than older brother Prince William.
Harry earned his nickname when he attended the birthday bash for his cousin Peter Phillips solo, the only without a date.
Wills, 25, was joined by Kate Middleton, Peter by fiancee Autumn Kelly, Zara Phillips by rugby hunk Mike Tindall, and Princess Beatrice by Virgin hotshot Dave Clark at the party on Saturday.
But Harry, 23, couldn't get ladylove Chelsy to attend.
This, a source revealed, was what prompted William to brand his brother with the title.
"Halfway through the evening William turned to Harry and said, 'You're now the official Royal gooseberry,'" The Sun quoted the source, as saying.
"'The whole group fell about laughing, except Harry who gave his brother a dirty look before smiling."
After dinner at the trendy Cocoon restaurant in Regent Street, London, the gang, except for Beatrice and Dave, partied at posh Volstead club in Mayfair.
"They looked happy. Everyone was with their partner, except Harry," said another source.
