Prince Harry doesn’t live in a castle, likes flying helicopters because no-one can bother him and calls the Queen “Granny”.
They’re some of his answers to questions posed by students at a remote New Zealand school, during a visit there.
Delighted students at Halfmoon Bay School on Stewart Island, 30km south of NZ’s South Island, grilled Prince Harry, one pupil asking what the prince liked most about flying helicopters.
“You have a moving office … there’s only two of you in the office and no one else can bother you,” the prince said.
Another asked whether he lives in a castle.
Prince Harry disappointed the students, saying he doesn’t live in a castle and doesn’t even have a crown.
Another wanted to know what he calls the Queen.
“I call her Granny, but I refer to her as the Queen because I’m in the army and she’s my boss.”
He suggested the students write to Prime Minister John Key to ask if they could go for a helicopter ride around the island.
The prince had visited the small school, which has only 24 students and two teachers, to see how it uses video and online technology for learning.
