The elders of the British royal family are thought of as a bit stoic and old-fashioned. So can you imagine the queen of the U.K. with a mobile phone? Well, it turns out that the monarch does actually have one, although she doesn’t know how to use it very well. For help with it, then, she turned to her grandsons William and Harry. But alas, that turned out to be a mistake, as they apparently used it to pull an epic prank.

Harry and William present a certain face in professional situations. At diplomatic events the pair, along with their wives and the rest of the royals, represent the entire United Kingdom. But although the royal family are permitted to have a little fun while visiting schools and the like, they all take their jobs very seriously indeed.

However, in private, matters are different. The royals enjoy a good joke as much as anyone. And this is perhaps most obvious at Christmas, when the whole family get together and exchange gifts. But the clan already have most material possessions that a person could ever want, so instead they exchange joke presents – and they’re unexpectedly hilarious.
