Prince Harry is now back from Jamaica, after a trip to a friend’s wedding with girlfriend Meghan Markle that you may have read a thing or two about. The prince has returned to “regularly scheduled programming,” if you will, and he made an appearance Monday with his grandmother, the Queen, after the Commonwealth Day service outside Westminster Abbey. (The Daily Mail—in very Daily Mail fashion—notes that he still looks to be “in good spirits despite . . . Markle [being] currently on the other side of the world,” filming her television show, Suits.)
The Queen—who was wearing yellow for the occasion, after wearing fuchsia earlier in the day (yes, glamorous outfit change!)—was also joined by her sons Edward and Charles. (Neither Kate nor William were on hand, after both attended the service last year, which was part of the celebrations for the Queen’s 90th birthday.)
The Daily Mail notes that Harry greeted a fan outside the service, a woman who looked “delighted to meet the smiling Prince.” (Has anyone not looked delighted to meet Prince Harry? That seems like it would be more newsworthy, no?) Anyway, the outlet reports that Harry was also “later left in stitches” by . . . a group of schoolchildren who “told him that he looked like pop star Ed Sheeran.”
Can you imagine meeting Prince Harry—being in that moment with him, gazing into his glistening beard—and telling him he . . . looks like someone else? That’s how you want to use that time, schoolchildren!??!
Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran lookalike stories are really having their moment!
