Believe it or not, Prince Harry, the third-in-line to the British throne, even worked as a bouncer at a bar while he was in Africa helping build a school for Aids orphans with some of his colleagues in the Army.
The 23-year-old Prince pestered British-born landlord Brian Sables to let him be a bouncer at Hopinn Bar in Lesotho after he fell for a T-shirt which one of the serving security guards at the outlet was wearing.
"Harry took a fancy to the uniform straight away and asked me, 'How do I get one?'. I said, 'You only get one of these if you work in the bar.'
"He said, 'I can do any job going'. I said, 'We've got only one job going at the moment and that's as a bouncer on the door', and he said, 'That's fine'," the 'News of the World' quoted Sables as saying.
Added a Royal source: "Harry adores going to Lesotho. He can just go to a bar for a few beers with his army pals and relax. He was so determined to get a T-shirt and be a doorman for the evening Brian couldn't turn him down."
During the two-week trip, Harry also borrowed ten pounds from Sables to buy a round for his colleagues from the Blues and Royals Regiment.
"Harry was sitting there wondering who was paying for the next round. He came up to me and said, 'Eh, I've got no money, just lend me a tenner," Sables was quoted by the British tabloid as saying.
Harry has spent the past two weeks in Botswana on safari and was only joined last weekend by his 22-year-old girlfriend Chelsy Davy. He is expected to be back in Britain this week to resume duties at Blues and Royals HQ in Windsor.
