Prince Harry and Queen photobomb at Commonwealth Games
Tuesday, 29 July 2014 - 15:28
Prince Harry has photobombed New Zealand Commonwealth Games officials in Glasgow – and they were so chuffed one of them made it their profile picture on Facebook.
The Prince gave a cheeky thumbs up in the background of a selfie taken by New Zealand rugby sevens coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and Massey University Professor Emeritus Gary Hermansson
The three men in the their black and white New Zealand team kits leaned in with their arms around each other as the Royal popped up in the background in a white shirt.
They were watching the 800m women’s swimming freestyle in Glasgow on Monday night, which saw Welsh swimmer Jazz Carlin win gold.
A chuffed Trevor Shailer quickly changed the photo to his Facebook profile picture.
He wrote: ‘Photo of the day…. A Royal photo bomb by Prince Harry with Titch (Sir Gordon) and Gary Hermansson at the Swimming venue tonight. Thanks to Bev Hari for taking the pic…fun times supporting our athletes at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games!’
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also at the event with Harry at the Tollcross Swimming Centre in the Scottish city’s east.
Harry’s move comes after Queen Elizabeth inadvertently photobombed a selfie between Hockeyroo players Jayde Taylor and teammate Brooke Peris on Thursday.
They took the picture, which showed the Queen peering into the photo in the background, before their opening match of the Commonwealth Games against Malaysia, at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.
