He may be the best royal photobomber, but don't expect to see Prince Harry with a selfie stick.

The 30-year-old royal was asked for a selfie from a young fan on Monday outside the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, and he shockingly turned down her request.

"No, I hate selfies. Seriously, you need to get out of it (the habit), I know you're young, selfies are bad." The crowd laughed as he added, "Just take a normal photograph!"

However, one thing is OK: Bonding with fellow red heads. The prince was greeted by a 12-year-old boy who has the same hair color who made an adorable banner with the message, "Red Heads RULE!"

Harry is also in headlines as his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas, 26, spoke out about the "noise" that comes with dating a prince. "I'm a strong, independent woman," she told The Sunday Times

She told the publication about her life post-Harry, "But if I ever feel like, 'Oh, my life!' or get upset by silly things like a photographer, or if someone has written something nasty that's upset me, I just think, 'Worse things happen at sea.'"
