Prince Harry took a break from being proper and royal on Friday to practice drills with the coaching apprentices at Coach Core, the program that, according to People (opens in new tab), he launched alongside Prince William and Kate Middleton on the eve of the London Olympics.

"That's quite hard work," he said after participating in a drill with a tennis ball. "I'm dizzy already!"

But don't let Harry's comments fool you; he had the time of his life. How do we know? Because the pictures from the event prove that Prince Harry freaking loves tennis balls. And soccer balls. Basically, Dug from Up is his spirit animal.
