Many of us Aussies like to feel as though we know the British Royal Family pretty well.
We get excited when they’re in the country (like Prince Harry is now), and we follow their births, deaths and marriages with the fervour of any Briton.
So how can it be that so many of us got one of our favourite royal’s name wrong his entire life?
Several social media users were shocked to learn Prince Harry’s real name is actually Henry.
Listen: If Meghan Markle marries Prince Harry, will she rescue us from the ivory anti-feminist princess tower?
The name Henry is normally only used when referring to the 32-year-old by his proper title: His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales, but a quick Google search will show you his birth name is Henry Charles Albert David.
Our knowledge gap was exposed when Channel Seven tweeted a live stream of the prince speaking at an event in Sydney on Wednesday, also sharing the video feed on their Facebook page.
The caption beneath the video read: “Invictus Games Countdown Launch: His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales at Admiralty House, Kirribilli.”
Commenters were quick to point out Channel Seven’s supposed “mistake”.
