Prince Harry attempted a fake accent while on his Canadian holiday — and failed miserably, according to a store owner who had a laugh with the royal when she mistook him for his disgraced uncle.
“I’m looking in these lovely blue eyes with the ginger eyebrows. That’s when I said ‘has anyone ever told you, you look like . . .’ and I was thinking of him, but it came out as Prince Andrew,” Stephen, 60, told the DailyMail.
Prince Harry’s security team then asked for some privacy, and they took the meeting to a back room, where he teased her about the mix-up.
“I can’t believe you said I look like Prince Andrew,” the royal responded.
“I said to him, ‘I’m so sorry, I just had a moment’ And then he said to me, ‘I was trying to disguise my accent and sound Canadian’ And [I] said, ‘Yeah, you didn’t do a very good job,’” Stephen explained.
“His mom would be so proud of him,” Stephen said of Princess Diana. “He wasn’t pushy. He wasn’t offended. He was cheerfully allowing me to do the mom thing.”

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
