Prince Harry’s Favorite Action Movie Makes A Lot Of Sense

In a pre-recorded “Colbert Questionert,” the king revealed his favourite sandwich and more on “The Late Show.”

Prince Harry enjoys dogs, Russell Crowe, and reincarnation.

The Duke of Sussex admitted as much during the “Colbert Questionert,” which “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert aired Tuesday after capturing the clip during the royal’s visit to the show in January.

Harry joined other visitors such as Michelle Obama and Robert De Niro in answering 15 questions. The jokes started right away when Colbert claimed the quiz, which was “scientifically calibrated to delve the depths of someone in order to reveal their soul to the public,” was made in a lab.

“Do you have a laboratory here?” Harry inquired. “That clarifies a lot.”

Harry then went on to provide answers to some of life’s most urgent questions. Which is better, cats or dogs? “Obviously, dogs.” Which is better, apples or oranges? “Oranges, of course.”

“There’s something very cannibalistic about that,” Colbert remarked, alluding to Harry’s red hair.

“You get ginger-vitis if we bite you,” Harry joked.

When the author of “Spare” stated that his favourite sandwich is “a cheese and ham toastie with dijon mustard,” Colbert inquired whether a “toastie” was the same as a panini. When Harry and his wife first started dating, these regional language discrepancies “put us in a lot of problems,” according to Harry.

Colbert claimed that “fanny” was the worst of all Britishisms — it refers to a completely different portion of anatomy on the other side of the pond — only for Harry to claim that “horseback riding” was the worst of all Americanisms: “Where else are you going to ride the horse?”

Harry went on to say that at the 2003 World Cup, he requested the entire England rugby team for autographs, only to find the players “standing there with their willies hanging out.” He proudly stated that he had “all 15 signatures” on his jersey.

“Did they sign it with pens?” Colbert was curious.

Harry joked that his favourite smell was his wife, Meghan Markle, before conceding that snakes were the most terrifying animal. When asked what happens when we die, Harry revealed that he believes in reincarnation and hopes to return as an elephant.

Probably most significantly, the Duke of Sussex stated that his favourite action film is Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” (2000), about one individual defying an empire.

Harry, whose exit from the royal family and subsequent memoir likely did exactly that, closed by characterising the rest of his life in five words: “Freedom. Happiness. Clarity. Space. Love.
