Prince Harry was recently mistaken for singer Ed Sheeran during a royal outing — and his reaction to the mix-up was perfect!
Harry, 32, left a lucky group of schoolgirls giggling after he stopped to chat briefly with a handful of the 70 flag-waving students at the Commonwealth Service at London’s Westminster Abbey on Monday, March 13.
But, there was one particular young lady who left an impression on the much-loved royal.

It’s reported that Tiya Thornton, 12, enquired of the royal, “Are you the real Prince Harry?” to which Harry replied, “Yes, the other one is Ed Sheeran.”
Harry roared with laughter before sharing the exchange with the Dean of Westminster, John Hall, who was walking alongside him. “Did you hear what they just said?” he said, pointing toward the children. Hilarious!
Earlier in the day, Prince Harry accompanied his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II for the annual Commonwealth Day service of thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.
The 90-year-old monarch’s husband Prince Phillip, sons Prince Edward and Prince Charles — and Charles’ wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall — were also in attendance.

Prince William and Kate Middleton — who last year attended the service to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday — were notably absent from the day’s events. William was with friends, indulging in a Swiss ski holiday.
It’s believed Kate, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stayed at home, while the 34-year-old enjoyed a boys’ weekend with his mates including nightclub boss Guy Pelly.
Kensington Palace commented on William and Kate, 35, not attending the royal engagement, saying, “The Duke and Duchess have attended the event for the last two years and look forward to doing so often in the future.”
Before briefly touching on the father-of-two’s trip to Switzerland, remarking, “His schedule was private and we would not comment on it.”
