Prince Harry Plays Prank on Usain Bolt in Resurfaced Viral Clip

Prince Harry shared a light-hearted moment with sprinter Usain Bolt in footage from Queen Elizabeth II's last jubilee that has resurfaced on TikTok.

The Duke of Sussex visited Jamaica during a tour of the Caribbean in celebration of his grandmother's Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years of her reign.

And during his stay he met the world's fastest man on an athletics track at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica, on March 6, 2012.

Harry was clearly in cheeky spirits because he was filmed squaring up to the 6ft 5ins Olympic champion, who won gold eight times.

The royal then played a prank on Bolt as he pointed to something over the sprinter's shoulder before running up the track to the finish line.

Bolt appeared to take the moment in good spirits, while Harry wasted no time celebrating in emphatic style.

The prince put both arms in the air as crowds on either side of the track watched on, while an amused Bolt jogged after him laughing.

Quoted by the BBC, Bolt later said he wanted to race Harry again at that year's Olympics: "He cheated, I said we would have a rematch in London 2012 and Harry said 'I'm busy.'"

He added: "He's cool, very down to earth. When you meet dignitaries you think it will be difficult but he just wanted to laugh—it was an honor and a pleasure to meet him.

"I'm still the fastest man in the world so he has a long way to go."

During the event, Harry asked Bolt to sign a photograph of a racehorse he had a stake in called Usain Colt, the BBC reported.

Prince Harry is due to visit London with Meghan Markle and their children Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor for the queen's Platinum Jubilee, marking her 70 years on the throne, in early June.

Harry and Meghan will reportedly be at St Paul's Cathedral, in London, for the Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen's Reign, on Friday, June 3.

A spokesperson said on May 6: "Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children."

The couple have been banned from the Buckingham Palace balcony at Trooping the Colour, the queen's birthday parade, on June 2, on the basis they aren't working royals.

It will also be Lilibet's birthday on Saturday, June 4, and they may either choose to spend it privately or it's possible they would be welcome to join the royals at the Epsom Derby for the horse racing.
