Harry has a great life, but he needs to work on the jokes

How great must it be to be Prince Harry? Not only does he get to go on cracking trips around the world, he’s expected to be the wild one so no worries about behaviour.

He also gets the perks of being in ‘the family’. What makes me laugh, though, is not his jokes but the way he spectacularly fails to pull them off.

Am I the only one who notices? Take, for example, the tour of the Caribbean where various radio stations insisted on playing clip after clip of his ‘quips’.

Maybe it was my ears, but I failed to detect any laughter coming back at him.

Is it that the royals aren’t meant to be funny, or that sarcasm doesn’t travel?

Or is that he’s just not grown into his funny bones yet?
