Looking more confused than intimidating, Harry was videoed doing the haka alongside some seriously frightening looking kiwis, with Warrant Officer Brett Pene saying it was ‘humbling’ to have the royal take part in the routine.

‘Given the time restraints in trying to teach him, it was a bit difficult trying to learn the actions and the words, so I think he did really well,’ said Brett.

‘He was sweating, we were sweating, a bit of frustration set in. He was keen, that was the main thing.’

Traditionally performed by Maori warriors, the most famous Haka - Ka Mate - is famously performed by New Zealand’s All Blacks - and is meant to psyche out the opposing team ahead of rugby matches.
