After being mistaken for Ed Sheeran, Prince Harry was “offended” and exclaimed, “Shut up!”
In a throwback interview, Margot Robbie said that Prince Harry was furious and urged her to “shut up” after she confused him for Ed Sheeran.
Harry and Meghan Markle recently made news after being mocked by HBO’s satirical cartoon The Prince, which follows the supposed inner workings of the Royal Family through the eyes of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s eldest child, Prince George.
While critics have criticized the show for mocking the 8-year-old prince, who is third in line to the throne, Harry and Meghan have appeared prominently in the episodes.
Harry, played by Orlando Bloom, says in one episode that he aspired to be a massage therapist when he was younger.
“Ah… I wanted to be a princess,” his wife responds.
“Oh, yeah, you kind of f***ed that up,” Harry responds quickly.
The show isn’t the first time Prince Harry has been embarrassed in public, having grown up in the spotlight.
A famous photo booth photo from model Suki Waterhouse’s housewarming party went viral in December 2015, featuring the prince alongside Ms Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Sienna Miller, and Harry’s cousin Princess Eugenie.
The image, which has since been removed, depicted the group making funny faces, with Ms Miller donning an elf hat and the Prince sporting novelty glasses.
Months later, on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, the Australian actress said that she posed for the shot without knowing who Harry was, even claiming that she mistook him for red-headed musician Mr Sheeran.
“He wasn’t wearing a crown – I had no idea he was a prince,” Mrs Robbie explained.
“Actually, when I saw him in those glasses, I was like ‘oh my gosh, I didn’t know Ed Sheeran was at the party,’ and he was like ‘shut up.’”
“Everyone now thinks if they come on a night out with me in London, they’ll run across Prince Harry,” the actress, who rose to stardom opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, later told the Sun.
“However, I had no idea who it was.
I’d had one or more drinks.
“I mistook myself for hanging out with Ed Sheeran, thinking to myself, ‘Ed’s a pretty cool guy.’
“I’m.” says the narrator of Brinkwire Summary News.
