Prince Harry has undoubtedly earnt himself a reputation as one of the most cheeky and fun members of the royal family. So it's no surprise that the royal gets along swimmingly with the other younger and cheekier members of his family, namely his nephew and niece Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

While the royal normally stays coy on subjects concerning his young relatives, he has recently publically commented about George and Charlotte, and it's quite adorable as quotes go.

The Prince spoke to US publication Newsweek, revealing just how much they mean to him and the family.

Because Prince Harry now trails behind his newphew and niece in the line of ascension to the throne he was asked about his feelings on the matter.

He said, "The reason I am now fifth is because of my nephew and niece and I could never wish them away. They are the most amazing things ever." Awwww.

Harry has previously chatted about the times he's spent so far with three-year-old George and two-year-old Charlotte, and discussed about how he hopes they'll see him positively as they get older.

Speaking to US magazine People, he said, "George and Charlotte will grow up and hopefully find me to be the fun uncle. I always want to be the fun uncle,"

Reportedly, their mother the Duchess of Cambridge shares Harry's thoughts, as she apparently loves the relationship he has with hers and William's children.

"Kate [also] adores the way Harry plays with her children - he is very good with them, a charming big kid and silly uncle."

Despite his fun side, it seems Uncle Harry is also partial to offering this niece and nephew a bit more serious advice every now and then. Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, he shared his hopes for their future, saying, "I would definitely encourage George, and Charlotte if she wants to, to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces, guaranteed,"

"And I know that William and Catherine would probably echo that as well, depending on the situation for them in those years to come.

"It's done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it's the same for William. It's hard to say anything else on that because, as a parent, it's your choice."

He also offered the young children the experienced advice to simply enjoy the responsibility and challenges of their unusual role in the monarchy.

"As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the role, because at first it's just pressure, pressure, pressure.

"Just enjoy it and make the most of it. If you're going to be doing it and you're having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they're smiling - and what's the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?"

Prince Harry is now fifth-in-line to the top job behind his father, Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and then Princess Charlotte. But it's clear the 32-year-old is perfectly happy to be behind his newphew in niece in the pecking order.
