Cape Town – We all need to kick back and relax now and then – treat ourselves like the kings and queens that we truly are – or at least like royal princes in The Duke of Sussex’s case. So when The Sun reported His Royal Highness indulged in a guilty pleasure – a £50 (R900) pedicure – the royal hypemen and women in us were all for it.

But as it turns out, while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoy regular treatments at the luxury Coworth Park hotel, The Duke of Sussex got his pedi for one particular reason: the ever-elusive 2019 Google Camp.

The three-day, top-secret Google Summit took place over the weekend in Sicily where guests, Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry and Bradley Cooper, to name a few, discussed the environment, among other things. Also in attendance was Prince Harry, who reportedly gave a speech himself... barefoot. Page Six says Harry gave an impassioned speech about climate change – something along the same lines as his talk with Dr Jane Goodall earlier in the week – but that’s as far as speculation went. Everything else – much like the jets that ironically flew the A-list celebs to the Summit on climate change – is up in the air.

So what exactly went down at this mysterious Google Summit anyway? Pics or it didn’t happen.
