Prince Harry made a hilarious blunder on live radio

And it has only made us love him more.

Prince Harry may be in hot water this week, for a very un-royal slip up live on the air. The famous redhead was a guest on Chris Evans' Radio 2 show, being interviewed about the upcoming Invictus Games and said something we don't think The Queen will be very amused with...

Talking excitedly about the sporting event, which will see wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel taking part in a whole host of activities, including wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball and indoor rowing, Harry said ‘It is epic amounts of fun, and it’s for everyone. And these guys are fantastic ambassadors for going out there and putting on a show.’

He went on to say, ‘They want to be able to serve their country again, put the Union Jack on their left breast and kick the arse out of life.’

Yep, you’ve read it right, the prince said ARSE. Live on air. It caused a bit of a social media storm, but most people were amused rather than offended. ‘Prince Harry just said arse on Radio 1… love the younger royals #princeharryisawesome’, one listener tweeted.

So while we hope the young prince won’t get into too much trouble with the royal family for the slip up, he’s still everybody’s favourite royal, because really he’s just like us.
