Royals, they're just like us, eh?

Prince Harry has opened up about missing his niece Princess Charlotte's christening, joking that he is a "bad uncle" for missing the occasion.

At the time of her birth, he was in New Zealand and Australia for British army commitments and during her christening, the 30-year-old royal was in South Africa on official duties, where he is working on saving endangered rhinos and elephants.

He reportedly told a Save the Rhino ranger Simson Uri-Khob that he regretted missing the occasion, saying: "What a bad uncle I am! I should really be there. But today I am here, this is where I want to be."
