Question master Tom Gleisner asked the panel: ‘Prince Harry is in a new ad. What is he announcing?

Ed Kavalee was the first to ring the bell with a brutal pick on Harry using his royal connections to make money in America.

“I think it’s an eBay sale of Philip’s stuff.” he said he, referring to Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, who died in April 2021 aged 99.

Kitty Flanagan then made a cheeky joke about the long-standing and false rumors surrounding Harry’s paternity.

‘Is it the Ancestry.com DNA test?’ she asked.

But it was Anne Edmonds who provided the correct answer, saying that Harry was in fact promoting his environmental travel business.

The ad, also starring New Zealand actors Dave Fane and Rena Owen, promoted the first initiative launched in New Zealand by Harry’s non-profit organization Travalyst.

Travalyst, founded in 2019, is a green travel project where tourists, rather than vacationers, are rated for sustainability.

New Zealanders now have access to a rating tool on the Travalyst website as part of a pilot initiative encouraging travelers to consider sustainable options when planning their next trip.

Tom showed the panel a picture of Harry with a mystery partner whose face was blurred and asked, ‘Two famous redheads got together this week. Who is Prince Harry here with?

‘His real father?’ Ed responded, eliciting a disapproving look from the host.

Former cavalry officer Hewitt, 64, has long denied false rumors that he is the biological father of Prince Harry, with whom he shares similar physical traits, including red hair.
