  • The Duke of Sussex recently made a royal visit to St Vincent's Catholic Primary School, where he met young fans - some of which didn't believe he was a real prince.
  • A little boy reportedly asked the royal, "When is the real Prince Harry coming?"
  • A learning mentor at the school said the children didn't believe he was a real prince because he wasn't wearing a crown.

Prince Harry made a special visit to a school in London on Wednesday - but not all the pupils were impressed by the royal. In fact, one boy at St Vincent's Catholic Primary School thought he was just pretending to be a prince.

The Duke of Sussex, who was there to take part in a tree planting project at the school, had to convince the children that he was "the real Prince Harry."

According to People magazine, teaching assistant Philomena Frattura said: "One of them tapped him and said, 'When is the real Prince Harry coming?'" 

"He said, 'But I'm Prince Harry.' 

"The student then said, 'When is the real Prince Harry coming?'

"Harry replied, 'I'm the real Harry. I've just had my hair cut for the occasion.'" 

Learning mentor Diane Redmond added: "They think the prince should have a crown."

This isn't the first time children have doubted the prince. 

He told People back in 2016: "Every time I get to meet kids and they have been told a real-life prince is coming, the disappointment on their faces when they see me without a crown or a cape."
