Will Arnett reveals he’s friends with Prince Harry

By Hayley Bradbrook

Who knew that Will Arnett and Prince Harry are friends? The Canadian actor revealed during Wednesday’s (June 20) episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden that he has struck up a friendship with the redheaded royal and that the two of them keep in touch via text.

The Toronto native’s last correspondence with Harry happened when he was in London walking past Buckingham Palace. “I took my phone out and I texted him and I said ‘Hey man. I’m just in London for a few days and—I thought of you—I’m walking in front of your gran’s house,'" he told a shocked James Corden. The Flaked actor added that Harry really "appreciated" the messages and responded back from "Afghanistan or something."

The Hollywood star further explained that he first met the British royal during a function "a while ago" and thinks he’s “the real deal.”
