PRINCE HARRY told off a reporter for asking him an unscheduled question on his last engagement in Malawi, a video shows.

The Duke of Sussex scolded Sky News royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills for asking him a question while he was leaving a health clinic in a remote village in Malawi. Footage shows Prince Harry being approached by the royal correspondent as he is walking away from the hospital. Ms Mills hands her microphone to the prince and asks: “That short conversation, what do you hope to achieve through it?” 

Prince Harry initially looks at her smiling and, while pointing behind him towards the hospital, he says: “What? Ask them.”

The reporter tries once again to get an answer from the Duke, adding: “Is that why it’s important for you to come and talk to them?”

At this point Prince Harry, who is waiting to enter his car surrounded by palace aides, turns around and, appearing frustrated by the follow-up question, tells Ms Mills: “Rhiannon, don’t behave like this.”

The Prince can then be seen entering his car, before the video cuts off.

The video was shot on October 1, right after Prince Harry told a group of young people to “hold on to your dreams” as he visited the Mauwa Health Centre in Blantyre.

The Duke sat outside and, surrounded by youngsters, touched upon a range of topics he deeply cares about, including sexual health, climate change and conservation.

A health official said: “They asked him what challenges he faced when growing up and he did have challenges but he said they were not similar as the context was different.

“He told the young people to ‘hold on to your dreams’ and he urged them to show kindness, empathy and work together.”

Prince Harry headed to the health clinic on his last day in Malawi, at approximately 12pm BST.

Before speaking to the children, Prince Harry met health workers at the clinic to learn their work and see an innovative project funded by the US and UK Governments called pharmacy-in-a-box.

The prefabricated, solar-powered and air-conditioned storage facility for medicines makes sure drugs and vaccines are more readily available and are better stored, safe from the scorching weather and thieves.

Prince Harry’s surprising reaction came just a few hours before the Duke released his bombshell statement announcing he and his wife Meghan Markle had launched a legal cause against the Mail on Sunday.

The statement, published on a website which was registered in March at approximately 7.30pm BST on October 1, sees Prince Harry attacking the tabloid media in the UK, accused of “bullying” and “scaring” people.

Prince Harry said in his announcement: “There comes a point when the only thing to do is to stand up to this behaviour, because it destroys people and destroys lives.

“Put simply, it is bullying, which scares and silences people.

“We all know this isn’t acceptable, at any level.

“We won’t and can’t believe in a world where there is no accountability for this.”

The legal action focuses on the publication of parts of a private handwritten letter sent from Meghan to her estranged father, Thomas Markle Snr.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex travelled to South Africa for a 10-day tour, finished yesterday, on September 23.
