99-year-old Prince Philip hasn’t quite got the hang of Zoom, Prince Harry said during a wide-ranging talk with James Corden on “The Late Late Show.”

Appearing on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Harry revealed that his grandmother, the Queen, bought Harry’s son Archie a waffle-maker for Christmas. The host then asked Harry if the Queen knows how to use Zoom.

“Yes, both my grandparents do,” Harry replied, much to Corden’s surprise as the host said, “this is crazy!”

He added, “we’ve Zoomed them a few times. They’ve seen Archie running around.”


The Prince laughed as he recalled their Zoom calls and said that instead of his grandfather pressing the Leave Meeting button, he slams his laptop shut instead: "He just goes 'doof!' [mimics slamming a laptop shut]"

Last week, the 99-year-old was admitted to hospital due to an infection and is expected to remain there for several days. Buckingham Palace said in a statement to Insider that the Prince was "comfortable and responding to treatment."

Corden and Harry also spoke about what life is like now that Harry and his family have settled in America and what they're excited for once life returns to normal after the pandemic.

Harry replied, "I have no idea." However, Harry made it clear that for him and Meghan Markle, their humanitarian causes are still a priority, saying that his life is always going to be about public service.

"Trying to bring some compassion, and, you know, trying to make people happy and trying to change the world in any small way that we can," he said.
