Prince Harry's young fan asks him a bold questionChris Jackson/Getty Images

While shooting for the special edition of Sky Sports show Game Changers, Prince Harry was asked the question that is probably on everyone's mind, "Are you ever going to be the king?" Theoretically it's very unlikely, as the red-haired prince is fifth-in-line to the throne, yet the very thought of him ruling as the king delights the old and the young alike.

Harry was at the Lambs Lane Primary School in Berkshire as a surprise guest on the show, when bold nine-year-old Tristan popped the intriguing query about Harry's possibilities as the monarch.

A visibly embarrassed Harry laughed saying, "That's the question everybody wanted, let's be honest! You will be glad to know, probably not!"

Realising that Tristan wasn't really happy with the truth, Harry dashed across the hallway to cheer his young fan up. "Oh, look at the disappointment! I love that! I'm going to give you a high-five," he said. The royal high-five worked wonders as later on Tristan piped in support of his favourite Prince Harry, "I just want Prince Harry to do what he wants, what he really, really wants. And yeah I think it'd be a fun experience for him to be king," the school-goer added.

Harry was happy to present some of the competitors in his Paralympic-style Invictus Games scheduled to begin in Orlando on 8 May. Having served the army in Afghanistan twice, the younger prince said he could relate with the psychologically injured people competing at Invictus.

He said: "There are images I've been lucky enough not to see, but there have been images that I've been unfortunate to see, nothing like some of these guys, but yes there is a percentage of me being able to relate to exactly what they go through."

The show aims to promote sports among children through games, challenges and sessions with inspirational sportspeople. While there were some hiccups during the filming, Harry was a clear hit among the children.
