Prince Harry is going to be a guest editor on Radio 4's Today programme this festive season – becoming the second royal to ever do so and following in the footsteps of numerous celebrities.
The 33-year-old's stint for a Christmas special of the early morning news and current affairs show will highlight issues close to Harry's heart, such as conservation and mental health.
'Prince Harry is grateful to have Today's considerable reach to shine a spotlight on a number of issues that are close to his heart,' a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said.
'He is working closely with Today's team to produce segments on a range of topics, including youth violence, conservation, and mental health.'
Also announced for guest stints editing the show over the Christmas period are Conservative peer Baroness Trumpington, poet Benjamin Okri and English National Ballet artistic director Tamara Rojo.
Topics will range from the debate over the legalisation of brothels to arts funding. There will also be an AI edition, which will feature technology interviewing guests. Sounds intriguing.
The only other royal to have a guest editing stint on the Today programme is Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, who did so back in 2004.
In the past, celebrity guest editors have also included the likes of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, double Olympic champion boxer Nicola Adams and film and TV star Carey Mulligan.
As well as work on radio, it looks like Prince Harry is also set to make a crack at Hollywood, with Star Wars' John Boyega recently confirming that he will feature as a Stormtrooper alongside Prince William in The Last Jedi.
