Just when we thought Prince Harry had enough talents on his CV (erm, stand-up comedy, anyone?), he's only gone and surprised us by appearing on Strictly Come Dancing.

Yep, that's right, Harry made an appearance on the dance competition show over the weekend - though sadly not on the dance floor itself.

Appearing on the show via video call, Harry was there to wish his close friend and one of the show's contestants, JJ Chalmers, good luck in the competition.

Speaking to JJ in a heartwarming chat, Harry said, "When I first met JJ, he was a shell of himself. But then to see you shine through [The] Invictus [Games] and to become like yourself again—that was the start of an amazing journey."

The Invictus Games were created by Prince Harry in 2014, where injured armed service members take part in different sporting events. JJ has competed in the games, and told Strictly viewers, "The simple fact is, if Prince Harry had not created the Invictus Games I would not have had that catalyst moment that changed my life forever. I wouldn't be here without him."

JJ told Prince Harry on the call, "You know that your vision going into the [Invictus] Games was to take this cohort of individuals and send them off so that they could have an impact on society."

Harry responded with a light-hearted joke, saying, "You're definitely having an impact on society now, especially when you're wearing those tight blue shorts and the socks pulled up. It doesn't get better than that!"

Harry added, "I’m so genuinely proud. You’re not a dancer, proving that you can do anything you put your mind to, which is amazing."

Viewers were excited to see Harry's surprise appearance on Strictly, with some even suggesting that he should take part in the show himself. We can't lie, we'd love to see Harry give ballroom dancing a try. Time to get learning the Cha Cha?
