Prince Harry: I’m Funnier Than Queen Elizabeth!

Prince Harry

Most people don't think of Queen Elizabeth as being very humorous, but Prince Harry wholeheartedly disagrees.

"She is very funny, but I think she gets it from my grandfather. They are very funny together," Harry, 27, told The Telegraph during the Diamond Jubilee tour. "My family is the same as any other family when it comes to humor behind closed doors, though I'd like to think I was funnier than my grandmother."

No kidding! On Saturday, Harry donned a mask featuring his older brother Prince William's likeness during a charity run in Brazil. "He thought it would be a bit of fun and give his brother a laugh," a source told The Daily Mail. "He hadn't planned to wear the mask but had spotted it on another runner and borrowed it."

Harry told The Telegraph he had been "humbled" during his 10-day visit to the Caribbean and Brazil. "I tell you what, it's been an emotional trip. I'm absolutely exhausted but the warmth of the reception that we've received from every single country that we've been to has been amazing."

Expected to serve in Afghanistan sometime this year, Harry said his royal duties will never take precedence over his civic responsibilities. (Brother William, 29, began a six-week tour of duty in The Falklands on February 1.)

"I'll do what's asked of me. You can't sit there with a stiff upper lip and not get involved," Harry said. "I'm in a very privileged position, so I'll use my title to help out where I can, but at the same time, we've both got our military careers, and that’s what we'll continue to do."

"I will help out with my grandmother whenever [The Queen] needs me, but I have this job that does suck up a lot of my time, and that's the number one for me."
