It seemed as if he had toiletries in one hand – suggesting he was on his way to the shower – and the father of two paused as he stared at the ongoing discussion.
Realizing that the show had to go on, the sportsman quickly opened the door and shot into the room while making little fuss during the hilarious moment.
As a professional, Harry smoothly continued to discuss the recently announced football league, although he also seemed oblivious to what had happened.

It comes as Boris Johnson on Tuesday threatened to drop a ‘legislative bomb’ to prevent England’s ‘Big 6’ football clubs from joining the European Super League, even though they have already signed up for the £ 4.3 billion league until 2046.
The Prime Minister has met with the FA, Premier League, PFA and fans and told them the government will not stand by as a handful of owners create a ‘closed shop’ and destroy England’s 132-year-old football pyramid.
Obviously, Johnson said that although he was an avid free marketer, he believed the escape competition was “ anti-competitive, ” that a “ legislative bomb ” like a new law had to be scrapped to stop it and that it “ should be ” ‘. ready now’.
Johnson’s spokesman threatened to force a new bill through parliament, saying, “ He was clear that there is no action off the table and the government is examining every possibility, including legislative options, to ensure that these proposals are halted.
Unannounced cameo: Jamie, the 47-year-old former Liverpool player, however, seemed completely oblivious to the interview as he casually came in shot without his top on.
The prime minister confirmed that the government will not stand by as a handful of owners set up a closed shop.
Downing Street has not ruled out that players from clubs involved in the escaping European Super League obtain a work visa or revoke police funding for match days.
No. 10 added the prime minister. Expressed solidarity with football fans and agreed that they should always be at the center of decisions about the future of the game.
He reiterated his unwavering support for the football authorities, confirming that they have the full backing of the government to take all necessary steps to put an end to these plans. ”
While the government would prefer the breakout to be stopped through existing football rules, it may be revealed that it has told the Premier League it will ‘do everything’, including possible competition law intervention and the introduction of ‘sport-specific legislation’.

In addition to government intervention, numerous measures are discussed. Sportsmail understands there are ‘immediate disciplinary proceedings’ among them against the six, both of which are Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool.
The ‘Dirty Dozen’ of Europe’s top clubs that have signed up have already agreed to participate in the midweek competition for at least 23 seasons with the sweetener of up to £ 300 million each when it starts as early as August.
An insider close to the deal said today that with JP Morgan’s financial backing, the new competition is “underway.”
“There are signed agreements – 23-year contracts. This is by no means a bargaining chip. I can see why people come to the conclusion, but I like to correct it. This is right, it happens, ‘the source told The Times.
Prominent lawyers have also said that competition law is likely on their side.

But there are growing rumors that at least two English clubs – claimed to be Chelsea and Manchester City – are already getting ‘cold feet’ about how the announcement was handled.
A chief executive told Sky: ‘This is not what we signed up for’, claiming leaders Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid are bullying them about it.
Another source told Politico that Man United and Liverpool had ‘lied’ to get them to join and have been ‘f *** eded’ ever since.
‘Big 6’ players, who were threatened with a ban from this summer’s European championships, are also said to be upset that they were not consulted with messages reportedly flying on the team’s WhatsApp groups about how to get the proposals sink.
Prince William, president of the FA, has warned that the proposals could “hurt the game we love.”
Even Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has spoken out against it, telling clubs like Liverpool, founded by the church, to think about the communities they serve.
