Prince Harry once recorded a funny voicemail that made the Queen laugh: "Hey, wassup? This is Liz"

"Sorry I’m away from the throne. Press one for Philip, two for Charles and three for the corgis!" said Prince Harry in the hilarious voicemail.

The Duke of Sussex Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II have always shared a special bond. They have always shared inside jokes, and Prince Harry has referred to the Queen's humor many times in his interviews. Royal author Phil Dampier shared in a piece he wrote for the Express that the Prince once decided to record a hilarious voicemail for the Queen. "When the Queen first got a mobile phone she asked him to record a voicemail message," he wrote. The voice message had him impersonating the Queen, saying, “Hey, wassup? This is Liz. Sorry I’m away from the throne. Press one for Philip, two for Charles and three for the corgis!”

Dampier said the Queen loved it and laughed a lot. "The Queen’s private secretary Robin Janvrin got the shock of his life when he heard it, but the Queen just laughed," he wrote. 



 

 

Previously, Harry spoke about the Queen about 5 months before her death in an interview with NBC. He spoke of his affection toward his grandmother and her sense of humor during his interview. "She's always got a great sense of humor with me," he said of Queen Elizabeth II. "It was just so nice to see her, she's on great form."



 

 

Harry issued a statement on September 12, 2022, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth on September 8, 2022, at the age of 96. In the statement, he praised his grandmother's "sound advice" and "infectious smile" and referred to her as a "guiding compass" due to her dedication to duty and service. Harry continued by expressing his gratitude for the Queen hugging her "beloved great-grandchildren." He said that he "cherished" his interactions with the Queen.

"In celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen - and in mourning her loss - we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty. She was globally admired and respected. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy," it read. "Let us echo the words she spoke after the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, words which can bring comfort to all of us now: 'Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings," he continued.



 

 

Harry expressed that the "final parting brings him and everyone else "great sadness," but he is grateful for all the memories with his beloved "Granny", right from his "earliest childhood memories with you" to the moment when she "met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren".

"I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over. And as it comes to first meetings, we now honor my father in his new role as King Charles III. Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your infectious smile. We, too, smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace," he concluded his heartfelt tribute to the departed soul.
