One youngster was heard asking him: "When is Prince Harry coming?"
He replied: "But I'm Prince Harry"
Prince Harry may be one of the most photographed men on the planet, but that doesn't mean everyone recognises him.
Take the schoolchildren at St. Vincent’s Catholic Primary School in Acton, for example.
During the sixth-in-line's visit to their school, a group of them questioned his royal status. Not because they were being cheeky, but because a group of them seemed to have no idea who he was.
One youngster was heard asking him: "When is Prince Harry coming?" RSVP Live reports.
Given the fact the Sussexes have seldom been out of the news for the last two years or so, Harry's probably not that used to having to prove he's a fully-fledged prince.
He replied: "But I'm Prince Harry."
However, the kid still took some convincing, and asked: "When is the real Prince Harry coming?"
Luckily, Harry took it on the chin and joked: "I'm the real Harry. I’ve just had my hair cut for the occasion."
There was an explanation for the kids' confusion.
The school mentor then explained that the pupils had expected him to be wearing a crown.
Maybe he should consider taking a leaf out of his gran's book. The Queen is said to wear bright colours so she stands out more.
Or he could just start wafting about wearing a crown whenever out in public.
