Prince Harry's Final Insult

Prince Harry's potential last job as a senior royal before he emigrates to Canada has been marked with an official Instagram video set to a Stone Roses hit which famously features the words: 'I'd like to leave the country'. 

The prince raced through today's launch of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup - dodging any questions about his future at a highly-orchestrated Buckingham Palace event, his first since he and Meghan quit last Wednesday.

Harry and Meghan's Instagram account, one of the key parts of their brand going forward, marked the occasion by releasing an Instagram story showing the grinning prince larking around behind the scenes. 

And in what could be interpreted as nod to his imminent exit to North America, the soundtrack was the Stone Roses' indie hit This Is the One, which contains the lyrics: 'I'd like to leave the country for a month of Sundays'. These words are not heard in the video but it seems inconceivable the royal couple's advisers were unaware of the lyrics when the well-known song was chosen.
