Prince Harrys awkward moment with Boris Johnson resurfaces as PM quits No. 10

Back in 2020 when Boris Johnson and Prince Harry held a surprise meeting, their first since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their departure from the UK, a very awkward moment occured.

Johnson's many gaffes in his time in the hot seat are being pored over once more after he announced that he would step down as PM after a series of scandals.

The Prime Minister was spotted stretching and putting his hand on his head as he met the Duke in January that year, on the margins of a UK-Africa investment summit in London.

One photo shared by royal expert, Omid Scobie in the wake of the news of the PM's departure captured an unimpressed looking Harry staring at the Prime Minsiter, who had his arms outstretched.

It was featured in a list of BoJo's 100 "worst moments ever" and attracted scores of comments.

"Harry is not amused," one tweeted.

Another added: "Harry's face tells you all you need to know."

One said: "He saw it coming before anyone else."

The relaxed-looking chat was caught in a candid series of moments on camera. But the talks themselves were private and neither side has said what was discussed.

It's understood the pair chatted for 15 to 20 minutes with no aides present.

Their head-to-head came hours after Prince Harry gave a heartfelt speech saying he had "no other option" but to quit the country for North America.

Speaking at a charity event in the Ivy Chelsea Club, Prince Harry said: "Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding.

"Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible."

Prince Harry's attendance at the UK-Africa Investment Summit – which brought together 21 African countries in London's Docklands – was itself a surprise.

It was attended by African leaders such as President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt, President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, and President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria.

Johnson, as well as talking post-Brexit relations with African nations, used the opportunity to convert his footsteps into energy by jumping up and down at the stand for 'smart city' firm Pavegen.
