Prince Harry joined The Late Late Show’s James Corden on a double decker bus in Hollywood earlier this month and now their special episode has aired on U.S television.
And yes, it’s as wholesome and hilarious (and at times serious) as you can possibly imagine.
The Duke of Sussex is seen enjoying a cup of tea while he engages in some socially distanced, friendly chit chat about everything from Archie’s first word, to Zooming with the Queen, rapping the Fresh Prince of Belair theme song and, of course, Meghan:
“The second date, I was starting to think, wow this is pretty special…we were just so comfortable in each other’s company,” he says.
“Dating with me, or any member of the royal family, I guess, is kind of flipped upside down. All the dates become dinners or watching the TV or chatting at home. And then eventually, once you become a couple, then you venture out to dinners, to the cinemas and everything else. So everything was done back to front with us. So we actually got to spend an enormous amount of time, just the two of us.”
At one point, they actually FaceTime Meghan who calls the Duke ” Haz” and it’s pretty darn cute.
Corden asks Haz (are we allowed to call him that too?) what a regular night in looks like for the couple and he explains that it involves getting Archie to bed and watching a bit of Netflix.
They discuss the fictional series The Crown and then things start getting serious.
Prince Harry opens up about his discomfort with the way much of the media reports on his life. He also clarifies that he never “walked away” from the royal family:
“It was never walking away. It was stepping back rather than stepping down.”
He says that the situation was destroying his mental health:
“So I did what any husband and what any father would do and I was like, I need to get my family out of here. But we never walked away and as far as I’m concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing. My life is public service so wherever I am in the world, it’s always going to be the same thing.”
He explains that he and Meghan both know their purpose:
“My life is always gonna be about public service and Meghan signed up to that. And the two of us enjoy doing that, trying to bring some compassion, trying to make people happy and trying to change the world in the small way that we can.”
The segment ends with Prince Harry and James Corden attempting a military obstacle course – which is the really hilarious bit. (Sorry James)
