Prince William shared what he is looking forward to when little brother gets married

Prince William is so, so happy Prince Harry will be staying out of his fridge once he marries Meghan Markle.

On Wednesday, William joked with reporters in Helsinki, Finland about his little brother’s upcoming spring wedding and the one hope he has for Harry after the “I do’s.”

“We are very excited and delighted for them both. And, we are wishing them all of the happiness at this exciting time,” William said. “And, for me, personally, I hope this means he stays out of my fridge. He’s often been found scrounging off of my food over the last few years.”

Report: Hawaii to test nuclear sirens for 1st time since Cold War

For the first time since the Cold War, Hawaii will be conducting monthly tests of a nuclear warning siren system aimed at alerting residents to an impending nuclear missile strike, according to a report from CNN.

Starting Friday, the state will begin the monthly tests, which will be part of the overall test of the statewide warning siren system, the report said, citing the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.

At 11:45 a.m. on the first business day of each month, a steady alert signal will sound from speakers for 50 seconds, which will then be followed by a 10-second pause and then an “attack warning” signal for 50 seconds, CNN reported.

Hawaii sits about 4,600 miles from North Korea and CNN reported the state would have about a 20-minute heads up before a missile launched by Kim Jong Un’s regime would strike the U.S. islands.

The tests will follow the latest missile launch by North Korea, which was reported to have happened Tuesday, according to multiple media reports.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Will wedding make American a princess?

Actress Meghan Markle is set to wed Britain’s Prince Harry in Spring, but the royal protocols mean the nuptials won’t officially make the American “Princess Meghan.”

After the couple weds, Markle will take on her husband’s title and become Her Royal Highness Princess Henry of Wales; however, she won’t be “Princess Meghan” because she’s not of royal blood, the Evening Standard reported. According to protocol, a person cannot become royal through marriage.

“The privilege of having princess before your first name is strictly reserved for women born into the royal family,” the Evening Standard reported.

Markle is likely, however, to be dubbed “Princess Meghan” by the media.

Lady Diana Spencer was never officially "Princess Diana," despite her 1981 marriage to Prince Charles of Wales. BBC News reported that she held the title of Princess of Wales while wed to Charles. After their divorce, she became Diana, Princess of Wales.

Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is expected to bestow a title on Harry on the morning of his nuptials, following royal tradition. The Guardian reported that he will likely become the Duke of Sussex, making Markle a duchess.

Harry’s older brother, Prince William, was made the Duke of Cambridge in 2011, when he wed Catherine “Kate” Middleton, making his wife the Duchess of Cambridge. Middleton is not officially called “Princess Kate.”

British royal family officials announced Monday that Prince Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, became engaged in London in November. The couple will wed next spring and plan to live at Kensington Palace's Nottingham Cottage.

Markle, who has portrayed Rachel Zane on the USA series "Suits" since 2011, started dating Harry in July 2016.

Prince Harry's engagement ring for Meghan Markle will honor Princess Diana, report says

Prince Harry may have come up with a touching way to honor his late mother, Princess Diana, with his engagement ring for his fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle.

Us Weekly reported Friday that Prince Harry will not choose a family heirloom for Markle’s engagement ring as his brother Prince William did for Duchess Kate. Instead, he’s reportedly commissioned a new, very special ring for her, according to royal sources. The ring, however, won’t completely lack family history, as it will reportedly feature diamonds from a brooch that once belonged to Princess Diana.

The news comes after several jewelry experts made predictions about what kind of ring Prince Harry will choose.

Dolphins mimic humans, gather gifts for girlfriends

The animal world is taking a page from the human one. 

Scientists studied the mating habits of humpback male dolphins for 10 years, and they found out that they give their female counterparts gifts of marine sponges to impress them, CNN reported.

Bottlenose dolphins have been found to use sponges and shells as tools for foraging, but this behavior, using them as gifts, was not expected, CNN reported.

Researchers observed the males presenting, even tossing the sponges, to the female. Some also got into a position called the “banana pose,” where they go to the surface, and lie on their back, with their heads and tails arched up like a stomach crunch. 

They also have “wingmen” who help the courting males keep the females interested in the primary male, or protected from other males.

“This formation of alliances between adult males for the purposes of coercing females is uncommon, since mating success cannot be shared,” Stephanie King told CNN. King is the co-author in the study and a research fellow at the Centre for Evolutionary Biology, University of Western Australia.
