    Who doesn’t love Prince Harry? Having just finished his Royal tour around the Caribbean, the Prince has recently paid visits to Antigua & Barbuda, St Kitt’s & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Barbados and Guyana.

    On the last day of his 15-day tour, he spoke to a group of children at the Joshua Children’s Home in Guyana about Royal life (spoiler alert: It’s seriously sweet). The children took the opportunity to ask him what it was really like to be a prince and rule the country.

    ‘Firstly, I definitely don’t rule the country’ he laughed. ‘What’s it like being a prince? Good and bad. ‘There’s lots of privileges of course that you get from when you’re born, but then with privilege comes a lot of responsibility.

    ‘You’ve got to take the good and the bad. Being a prince means you’ve got to enhance all the positivity, try and encourage people to see the good stuff about life.’ Be still our beating hearts.

    Once his royal tour was over, Prince Harry reportedly flew straight out to Toronto to see girlfriend Meghan Markle. The news that the Prince was dating the American actress broke a million hearts around the world, as it means he is well and truly off the market. Sob.

    The children at the Joshua Children’s Home also quizzed the Royal about the Queen’s most famous residence, Buckingham Palace.

    ‘I don’t spend a lot of time there, sadly. But the Queen spends quite a lot of time there, and the food is delicious – and there’s a couple of thrones in there, I think, from years and years ago. It’s one of our greatest landmarks.

    ‘Have you seen Windsor Castle? That place is awesome’ he added.
