When Prince Harry announced his engagement to Meghan Markle on Monday, his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton were quick to announce their happiness at the news.

‘We are very excited for Harry and Meghan. It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together,’ the couple said in a statement through Kensington Palace.

The pair later made their first public appearance as an engaged couple together, announcing their wedding date and venue the following day.

But when Prince William was interviewed during a two-day trip to Finland on Wednesday, he expressed a more personal reason that he’s happy his brother is settling down.

‘Personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years!’ he joked to reporters, according to People.

Considering Markle is the editor of former lifestyle site The Tig and a self-proclaimed foodie, we (and William) can assume that Harry will likely have no lack of delicious food stocked in his own fridge once his fiancée moves in.

Who knows, maybe it will even be William doing the ‘scrounging’ for food this time around?
