Britain's King Charles visits Scotland


  • King Charles visited the University of East London Wednesday
  • One person asked the King to "bring back" Prince Harry to the U.K. following his royal exit
  • His Majesty reportedly laughed off the question and kept walking

King Charles III just laughed when asked about bringing his youngest son, Prince Harry, back to the U.K. during a recent royal outing.

On Wednesday, the monarch, 74, visited the University of East London for the college's 125th anniversary and to open a new primary care training hub.

King Charles was greeting the onlookers waiting outside the university when one person from the crowd suddenly yelled out a request involving Prince Harry, who stepped down as a senior working royal in January 2020.

"Bring back Harry, please," a man said while His Majesty shook hands with some of the people gathered around him, Us Weekly reported. "Can you bring him back, sir?"

The King seemingly didn't hear the first part of the request and asked, "Who?"

"Harry, your son," the unidentified man replied.

King Charles responded with a laugh and kept walking without saying anything.

Daily Mail obtained a video of the interaction, which took place nearly a month after Prince Harry dropped his memoir "Spare." The book contained a number of bombshell claims and allegations about his family, including his father allegedly leaking stories to the press.

A social media user shared the footage of the King's interaction with the fan via Twitter, where it received mixed reactions.

Some suggested that King Charles' response was a dig at his son, while others defended the monarch, saying he just didn't hear the name as he was busy greeting other well-wishers.

"The shade," one Twitter user commented along with a laughing emoji.

"And he laughed. We all feel that way," another wrote.

"It was such a good laugh," a third user wrote, adding laughing and raised hand emojis.

"He definitely didn't! He didn't hear the question [that had] been put to him!" another suggested amid speculations that the King asking "Who?" was a jab at his son.

Another agreed, writing: "I think he didn't hear what was being said at first so no confusion on the King's part."

Some slammed the royal fan for asking King Charles about Prince Harry amid the drama between the Sussexes and the royal family.

"Very inappropriate of the guy to say that to him," one wrote.

"Bet the guy was looking for a viral moment plus camera filming. These days there's always one person trying too hard," another opined.

The royal family hasn't publicly commented on Prince Harry since he released his bombshell memoir last month.

The Duke of Sussex claimed in a recent interview with ITV's Tom Bradby that he wanted his father King Charles and older brother Prince William back in his life but that they have "shown no willingness to reconcile."

But royal biographer Angela Levin claimed in an interview with Us Weekly Tuesday that King Charles isn't giving up on his younger son despite the drama brought by the Sussexes' Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan" and his book "Spare."

"King Charles is a monarch, but he's also a father," Levin explained. "He loves Harry. He might not like what he's doing, but he loves him and there's a weakness there for him. He doesn't want to lose him as a son."

After months of anticipation and a sustained publicity blitz, Prince Harry's autobiography 'Spare' has finally gone on sale
