The Duke and Duchess had a packed schedule, making stops at Chichester, Brighton and Peacehaven, but Harry made the quip during a tour of the University of Chichester in Bognor Regis.
He seemed to be distracted by the holiday camp, with its famous white structure, and asked one of his hosts what it was.
Looking surprised when they told him it was one of Butlin’s resorts, Harry joked: “We’ll have to go!”
He added: “I love it, it looks like a circus.”

Butlin’s Bognor Regis opened in 1960 and today it caters for over 385,000 visitors per year. Frontline staff wear the iconic Redcoat uniform.
The holiday camp were quick to tweet their delight after Harry’s comments, saying “We’d love to welcome Harry and Meghan to resort. They’d be following in another famous Royal couple’s footsteps.”

They included a photo of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visiting Pwllheli in 1963.
It’s not known whether California-born Meghan has ever visited a typical British holiday park, but perhaps her British husband can rectify that.
During their first official visit to Sussex, the Duke and Duchess visited Edes House in Chichester, to see the rare Sussex copy of the American Declaration of Independence.
After a tour around the University, they travelled to Brighton to view the Royal Pavilion buildings, where they were met by a huge crowd of locals during a walkabout.
Their final stop of the day was Peacehaven, where they chatted with youngsters at a youth centre.
