As Prince Harry prepares for his Arctic trek, Good Morning America caught up with him to find out how William and Kate's wedding preparations were going.

Harry kicked off by answering questions on the best man's speech:

I am doing a speech along with a couple of his friends.

I will have a few stories but my grandmother will be there so I will have to, er, be selective.

The speech will be like any best man's speech, between the three of us we will make sure people know the good times and bad times since he was a nipper.

We'll make sure that we dig him in the ribs a bit and embarrass him - make him lose a bit of hair.

On William's decision to propose to Kate:

We all thought that it was never going to happen for him. But it has happened and everyone is really proud of him.

It's a big deal, its not just a normal wedding. It's a big decision for him to bring Kate into the family, what with pressure from the media, from the public perception.

He has done the right thing, waited and he has done what he feels right and it is a huge step.

On Kate:

To have a big sister is very, very nice. She's a fantastic girl. My brother is very lucky. She's very lucky to find my brother. The two of them are a classic match.

On his dad Prince Charles getting involves with the wedding preparations:

He has a lot to do with the wedding which is really nice. He is so unbelievable busy but managed to make time to help Kate out with the music, the processional music.

He is obsessed with the music... Kate is a girl and all girls are obsessed with their music on their wedding day... she must have a book on it.

Between them they have been slaving away getting everything right. It's fantastic really is.

And on the stag party that took place in Norfolk last weekend:

I'm not going to talk about that," he said. "Nice, try getting me to talk about the stag weekend. That was never going to happen.
