Is Prince Harry rocking a ponytail now that he's rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty?

Though they're expected to return in the UK in June, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been settling into their new home in Montecito California, where their neighbours include Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Rob Lowe.

In a recent interview with James Corden, the 9-1-1: Lone Star actor said: "I just ran into your countryman, the English treasure, Prince Harry, at the stoplight 10 minutes ago."

He explained Harry lives relatively close by with Meghan and Archie, but added: "He's been very reclusive. Seeing him in the neighbourhood is like seeing the Loch Ness Monster, and I finally saw him. I finally saw him driving his car."

The 56-year-old continued, adding he may have a royal "scoop".

"It was very, very quick — don't totally quote me on it — but it looked like he's wearing a ponytail," he said. "I'm just saying. It looked to me as a casual observer that his hair had grown very long and was pulled back very tightly by what I can only assume was a ponytail."
