    Prince Harry’s naughty gift from Princess Diana and his plan to trick the Queen with it

    Prince Harry’s naughty gift from Princess Diana and his plan to trick the Queen with it

    Prince Harry celebrates his 37th birthday today – and there's no doubt wife Meghan Markle will have some amazing presents lined up for him.

    It's unknown exactly how he will be celebrating but it's likely he will enjoy his special day alongside his young children Archie and Lilibet in California.

    When his late mum Princess Diana was alive, her former butler Paul Burrell, says she would spend ages trying to find the perfect presents for her sons for special occasions such as birthdays.

    And according to Paul, one year at Christmas she bought Harry a very naughty stocking filler – and he absolutely loved it.

    Speaking to the Mirror, he said: "She'd spend hours looking for jokey things for their stockings. One year, Harry got fake dog poo."

    And not only did Harry love the gift, but he also had a very cheeky plan on how he was going to use it – he wanted to trick his grandmother the Queen with it.

    Princess Diana was known for her wicked sense of humour and trying to give her sons Harry and Prince William a normal as possible upbringing.

    And Mr Burrell says the trio's Saturday night routine was one that sounds unbelievably normal.

    He said: "The three of them would nip to McDonald’s for a Big Mac and fries before coming back to watch Blind Date. All three of them would squat on this massive, stuffed hippopotamus Diana had in her sitting room.

    "They loved Blind Date and I’d hear them all screaming things like “Oh don’t pick him!” and “Lorra, lorra fun”.

    Prince Harry's birthday today comes as he begins to return to work following parental leave after the birth of Lilibet in June.

    Earlier this week, he spoke at a virtual event honouring those taking part in the Warrior Games alongside US First Lady Dr Jill Biden.

    And during the chat, he talked about how the Covid pandemic had "flipped life upside down for so many".

    He said: "I am so sorry that we're not all together at the Warrior Games where we should be. The pandemic has certainly changed or flipped life upside down for so many people.

    Harry was expected to attend the 2021 Warrior Games in person and it was due to take this week in Orlando, Florida.

    However, it was cancelled due to coronavirus-related concerns.
