Prince Harry has revealed that his grandfather Prince Philip does know how to use Zoom, but he just slammed his laptop shut to end calls instead of hitting the Exit button.
The Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen have called the Sussexes “a few times” and have even seen Archie “running,” Harry said.
His comments came as part of an extensive chat that took place primarily during an open-top bus tour of Los Angeles with The Late Late Show host James Corden.
In an extraordinary moment, Harry raps the theme song The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air outside the mansion where it was filmed, before Corden video calls Meghan Markle, who calls her husband ‘Haz’.
The Duke of Sussex also opened up with James about his relationship with Meghan, his son Archie, and his decision to resign as front-line royalty, saying the pressure of being in London was ‘destroying his sanity’, calling on British media of ‘toxic’.
The rare television interview was recorded before Prince Philip, 99, was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London, where he is being treated for an infection and begins his 11th day today.

Responding to whether the Queen knows how to use Zoom, Prince Harry said: ‘Yes, both of my grandparents do.
‘They’ve zoomed in multiple times, seen Archie running.

‘I’m like “bye” as I press, and he just says [imitates closing laptop].
Harry also revealed that Prince Philip and the Queen sent Archie a waffle maker for Christmas.

Buckingham Palace’s last update on Prince Philip was on Tuesday and he said he was “comfortable” and “responding to treatment.”
Her son Prince Edward has also said this week that Philip was ‘much better’ but ‘eager to go out’ with the Royal Family who kept his ‘fingers crossed’.
The Earl of Wessex thanked supporters for their messages of support as it was announced Tuesday that Philip would spend “several days” more in hospital.
He was admitted to London’s King Edward VII Hospital last Tuesday night as a precautionary measure after feeling ill and entered the building without assistance.
This is the longest amount of time he has spent in the hospital since June 2013, when he had an exploratory operation on his abdomen.

Philip’s eleventh day in the hospital came when Harry’s interview was released, during which he described the couple’s decision regarding royal frontline duties, saying: “ He never left. It was taking a step back instead of going down.
“It was a really difficult environment, which I think a lot of people saw. So I did what any parent or husband would do and thought, “How can I get my family out of here?”
“But we never left.”
While the interview was conducted before the Queen stripped the Sussexes of their royal patronages last week, Harry says: ‘My life is a public service, so wherever I am in the world, it will be the same.
As far as I’m concerned, whatever decision is made on that side [in Britain], I’ll never leave ‘.
