Prince Harry joins photobomb craze

Welington - Britain's Prince Harry has followed his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II into the photobomb craze, giving the thumbs up in an image of acclaimed New Zealand Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens at the Commonwealth Games.

Just days after the queen was snapped beaming in the background as Australian hockey players Jayde Taylor and Brooke Peris took a selfie, the 29-year-old prince popped up as Tietjens was being photographed at the swimming pool.

Tietjens, New Zealand deputy chef de mission Trevor Shailer and sports psychologist Gary Hermansson were photographed as they sat a few rows in front of the prince, his brother Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge.

In the photo, taken by former New Zealand hockey player Bevan Hari and posted on the Sport Manawatu Facebook page, Harry is seen laughing and giving a double thumbs up.

"Photo of the day," Shailer wrote on the Facebook page. "A Royal photo bomb by Prince Harry with Titch (Tietjens) and Gary Hermansson at the swimming venue tonight."
