Prince Harry lived up to his playful reputation when he attempted to prank a student on a royal visit to a school in England.

The 32-year-old tried out the classic shoulder tap prank on a pupil at the Nottingham Academy, but failed miserably with his attempt.

"I knew it was you," the pupil tells the Prince, before repeating the same trick himself.

He was visiting the Nottingham Academy, to see the work of Full Effect, a project aiming to improve opportunities for young people.

The programme, supported by The Royal Foundation, supports children and teenagers in St Ann's area of the city to deter them from becoming involved in youth violence and gangs.

In a speech, he said: "The effect that you can have within your communities now by taking the decision you've taken and now by bringing your skills back to that community and being able to engage other people is something seriously lacking in many cities across the UK.

"I genuinely believe that you guys, putting yourselves forward for this - you are unique individuals and now you've got a unique toolbox you can take forward to change the lives of not just yourselves and people around you, but also the kids that you interact with."

He added: "This is the first group of individuals that have made it through Nottingham and people up and down the country are talking about it.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for everybody involved, so please spread the word."
