Prince Harry gets in on photobombing action

The Queen smiled sweetly over the shoulders of some unsuspecting Australian athletes taking a selfie last week – now her grandson has gotten in on the photobombing action.

We have to admit, though, Prince Harry is much more enthusiastic about his photobomb.

Prince Harry was attending a swimming event at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games with his brother Prince William and sister-in-law, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, when he gave the photographer two thumbs up between the heads of rugby sevens coach Sir Gordon Tietjens (left) and New Zealand Sport Manawatu charity CEO Trevir Shailer (right).

Shailer cropped the photo for his Facebook profile shot, but in the larger version, Prince William is seen in the background watching the swimming.

The Queen’s photobomb last week was a surprise – the athletes were likely trying to capture the Queen in their selfie but I doubt they were expecting her to look at the camera and smile.

But there is something to be said for a photobomb done with such enthusiasm.

Now, who will be the next royal to partake in a photobomb?

UPDATE: Prince William has also joined the photobombing action at the Commonwealth Games. 

U.S. cyclist Scott Savory posted a photo of himself and Sir Chris Hoy with a laughing Prince William ducking into the shot behind them. Wills is a tad blurry in the shot, but you can tell it’s him.

“Pure awesomeness,” Savory said in the Instagram post.

    Odd.
    when I see people take pictures, particularly of family/friends, polite people purposely wait by the side, to ensure that they are not in picture.

    Dear Old Phil has been a photobomb all his career.

    I have no problem when this hereditary celebrity acts this way, but please don’t involve him in sombre events like Great War anniversary observances. It cheapens things.
