Prince Harry isn’t afraid to get candid! On Sunday, the final day of his Royal Tour of the Caribbean, Harry was interviewed by a young local girl in Guyana about his life in England.
In a video shared on the Kensington Palace Twitter account, she can be seen first asking him about Buckingham Palace, and he noted that though he’s not there often, “The queen spends quite a lot of time there and the food is delicious.”
His interviewer also asked how many maids were there, and he replied, “I don’t know, probably not as many as you think.”
When she asked him what it was like to rule England, he laughed and said, “Firstly, I definitely don’t rule the country. What’s it like being a prince? Good and bad. There’s lots of privilege of course, but with privilege comes a lot of responsibility. Being a prince means you’ve got to harness all the positivity, try and encourage people to see good stuff about life.”
And that’s certainly what Prince Harry did during his two-week trip. On Saturday, he was gifted with a giant feather headdress from dancers in Surama, Guyana, which he happily put on along with a beaded necklace.
Harry also spent a lot of time with local children and Sunday was no exception. The royal visited the Joshua House Children’s Centre where he shook hands with and talked to excited youngsters, including the girl who interviewed him.
Harry traveled to seven different countries in 15 days for the tour and is now heading back to London.
