The time a young, cheeky Prince Harry managed to trick his bodyguard and escape from Kensington Palace

It’s no secret that Prince Harry was a bit of a brat when he was younger. He delighted royal fans for many years with his antics, whether it was sticking his tongue out at the press or covering his cousin’s mouth on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Growing up between Kensington Palace and Highgrove House in Gloucestershire would have provided plenty of opportunities for cheeky young royals like Prince Harry to explore. And that’s exactly what happened, yielding some truly hilarious anecdotes.

But one story stands out above the rest: the time Harry escaped Kensington Palace and made his way to Kensington High Street before being apprehended.

Ken Wharfe, the family’s former protection officer, revealed the story of Prince Harry’s incredible escape from the secure palace.

Harry used to come to him dressed in military fatigues and ask for missions, according to Wharfe, a former member of SO14.

He described how he gave the young royal a two-way radio and assigned him a mission. But, like any young daredevil, Harry seemed to take Wharfe’s mission very seriously.

The prince decided to make his own way from Kensington Palace to Kensington High Street without informing anyone.

He then called Wharfe on the radio to tell him “mission accomplished.”

After realizing where the mischievous young royal was, Mr. Wharfe said his feet “didn’t touch the ground” as he rushed to find him.

While Prince Harry has always been known for being cheeky and rebellious, his brother Prince William previously revealed a brilliant trick his mother pulled on him when he returned home from school.

“Just outside this room where we are now, she organized for Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Naomi Campbell to be waiting at the top of the stairs when I came home from school,” William said in an interview to mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death.

“I was probably 12 or 13 years old at the time, and I had posters of them on my wall.”

“And I turned bright red, and I didn’t know what to say, and I fumbled, and I think I fell down the stairs on the way up.”

“I was completely and utterly astounded.”

“That was a very funny memory about her, loving and embarrassing and being the sort of joker, and it’s lived with me forever.”
