Best uncle ever!

It feels like only last week that Prince William and Kate added to their little family after welcoming Prince Louis in to the world. 

This week though, 2 months after his birth, Price Louis was the latest in the royal family to be christened but it was his uncle's gift to celebrate the day that has everyone talking.

Proving not only why he's the coolest person in the royal family, but also the coolest uncle, Prince Harry spent just over $15,000 NZD (£8,000) for a rare first-edition Winnie The Pooh book from 1926.

The book, written by A.A. Milne, was in prestine condition, despite being from 1926, and bought from Peter Harrington Rare Books.

While other first editions can be found online for prices ranging between $336 and $8,000, it was the rarely seen prestine condition of the book that pumped up the price for Prince Harry.  

While talking with The Sun, a source close to the royals spoke about Prince Harry's inspiration behind getting the first edition book for his Nephew:

One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother.

She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older.
