Prince Harry and his scruffy beard are wrapping up a tour of the Caribbean (opens in new tab), where Harry was interviewed by a young girl who wasted zero time getting to the real talk. Not only did she ask Harry how many maids work in Buckingham Palace (answer: "I don't know, probably not as many as you think"), she inquired about what it's like to rule England.

"Firstly, I definitely don't rule the country," Harry said. "What's it like being a prince? Good and bad. There's lots of privilege of course, but with privilege comes a lot of responsibility...Being a prince means you've got to harness all the positivity, try and encourage people to see good stuff about life."

Wait, did Prince Harry just paraphrase Spider Man? Just when we thought he couldn't be more of an (inter)national treasure.
