Prince Harry is the most popular member of the royal family, and it’s easy to see why.
But even he makes demands when staying at hotels, apparently. According to his good friend, Nacho Figueras, after a trip to a polo match he told hotel staff to stop doing one thing.
Talking to CBS This Morning, Figueras said: ‘He was there and we were at the hotel where we spent the night before the game.
‘He talked to a person and said, “This morning I got my coffee and I saw that you have a plastic thing on the coffee. And then I also sent my shirt and I got my shirt in a big plastic bag.”
The prince then went on to ask hotel staff: ‘Can we please not use the plastic?’
Figueras continued: ‘So that’s this guy, okay. I don’t like to talk about that at all, that’s who he is. That’s who they are. No plastic.’
Prince Charles has always been vocal about protecting the environment, regularly giving passionate speeches about plastic pollution and the effects of climate change, so it’s hardly surprising that this would have had an impact on his son. Harry and his brother, Prince William, have previously spoken about how their father’s work influenced them as children.
In a recent interview, Harry revealed: ‘I used to get taken the mickey out of at school for picking up rubbish. I didn’t go out consciously looking for it but when you go for walks anywhere and you see something and it stands out, you pick it up.’
William added: ‘He took us litter picking when we were younger. We thought this is perfectly normal, everyone must do it. We were there with our spikes stabbing the rubbish into black plastic bags.’
Harry continued: ‘I’ve literally done this because I’m programmed to do it because my father did it. We should all be doing it.’
