The secret fact you didn't know about Prince Harry and his relationship with the Queen

A new book has confirmed The Duke of Sussex is the "prankster" of the family.

Prince Harry has always had the reputation of being the fun-loving Prince, and now a new royal book has suggested he's the "prankster" of the royal fold.

According to royal author, Bryan Kozlowski, The Duke of Sussex once took advantage of his grandmother asking for help with technology and snuck off with her personal phone to re-record her outgoing voicemail message.

In his new book, Long Live the Queen! 13 Rules for Living from Britain's Longest Reigning Monarch, he claims, "Prankster Prince Harry reportedly used the opportunity to record the following voice mail message on his grandmother's cell: 'Hey, wassup? This is Liz! Sorry I'm away from the throne. For a hotline to Philip, press one; for Charles, press two; for the corgis, press three.'"

While it's easy to presume the royals may lack a sense of humour, Prince Harry previously revealed that's far from the case with his relatives.

He explained, "They are very funny together. My family is the same as any other family when it comes to humour behind closed doors.”

Sadly it seems things have been less harmonious of late following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to step down as senior royals earlier this year.

However, while it was thought to ruffle feathers, the Queen made it clear that the couple will always be part of her family.

In a touching statement she said, "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.

"I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life."

The 94-year-old Monarch went on to say, "I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.

"It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life."
