Prince Harry Talks About His Family’s ‘Humor Behind Closed Doors’

He may be a prince, but Harry prides himself as a royal jester.

During his four-country tour, which just wrapped up in Brazil this weekend, Harry says he was overwhelmed with emotion at seeing the love for his grandmother. But what people may not realize, he says, is what a good sense of humor the Queen has, something she picked up from husband Prince Philip.

“They are very funny together. My family is the same as any other family when it comes to humor behind closed doors,” he says, then adds, “though I’d like think I was funnier than my grandmother.”

One landmark light-hearted moment on his trip came when he outwitted lightening-fast Usain Bolt, distracting the Olympic phenom and dashing off before the starting gun sounded. Later, while in Brazil, Harry poked fun at his older brother, donning a Prince William mask while taking part in a fun run.


Talking of the upcoming Olympics, he said, “The three of us, my brother and my sister, will be as involved as we can be. I still love my sport, maybe not quite so much in this heat.” Harry was representing the Queen on the tour of Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica as part of her Diamond Jubilee commemorations.

Harry, William and Kate Take Part in Olympics

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have once again joined forces – this time, to inspire young people in their official new roles as ambassadors to the British Olympic and Paralympic teams. The Royals are part of a group of 27 other ambassadors named from among Britain’s most inspirational and accomplished Olympians from previous games.

Their office at St. James’s Palace said the Royals will “use their roles to promote the importance of participation in Olympic and Paralympic sport and encourage greater awareness of the Olympic and Paralympic values.” For Kate, the appointment positions her in another major national role after her being a patron for the Princess Foundation.

Among themselves, all three are athletic: William, an avid swimmer, has high hopes to run a marathon, takes part in soccer and rugby, and plays tennis with Kate, 29. She played hockey at school, and still loves the game, as well as tennis. Harry, 27, is a rugby and polo enthusiast.

Andy Hunt, CEO of the British Olympic Association and Team GB Chef de Mission for London 2012 said, “We are delighted… for Team GB that The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry are supporting their efforts next year, and we hope together we can ensure that the whole of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is behind our athletes in their quest for Olympic success.”
