An optimistic Prince Harry has given clear and concise advice to Lionel Messi after watching him play for Inter Miami on Sunday, telling him to ‘put him in the net’ after failing to score against LAFC.
The former royal was among a host of stars in Los Angeles watching the world’s greatest football player help his side to a 3-1 win – but there was some disappointment the man himself didn’t no longer appear on the score sheet.
Despite his two assists, it seems Harry wasn’t too impressed with the lack of goals, responding quickly to a fan who asked him for ‘a message to Messi’.
Turning to the camera as he is flanked by his security, the Briton can be heard shouting “a message for Messi? Net it before you laugh and walk away.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, was without Meghan Markle for his trip to the LAFC stadium on Sunday night, where he sat in the $9,000 VIP suite for the game.

Harry (pictured) sat in a luxury VIP box in Los Angeles for the match, which Inter Miami won 3-1.
In the box, he sat alongside team board member Larry Berg, as well as actress and LAFC superfan Connie Britton, the 56-year-old star of Spin City’s Friday Night Lights. and more recently White Lotus.
It is understood the clip of Harry talking to a fan in the bowels of the stadium came just seconds before he was invited into the dressing room to meet Messi – where he may even have passed on his advice to the man himself.
Harry was joined at the game by Hollywood icons such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Ferrell, as well as sports legends including basketball’s Magic Johnson and LeBron James.
Messi provided two assists but failed to find the back of the net for the second game in a row.
Harry sat down with LAFC executives and an array of stars last night at BMO Stadium in a box costing up to $9,000.
There was a remarkable list of VIP attendees for the game in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Messi fever has well and truly hit the United States, with the legendary player impressing from his first months in MLS.
He scored nine goals in seven League Cup games to help Inter Miami win their first-ever trophy last month, before scoring on his MLS debut against the New York Red Bulls a few days later.
Messi is goalless in his last two games – much to the dismay of those in Los Angeles on Sunday night – but he remains unbeaten throughout his 11 games since joining Miami.
Next up will be a visit to Sporting Kansas City in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday night, before Messi travels to Atlanta to play in the biggest stadium since arriving on American soil.
