Prince Harry has revealed that he wants to be an elephant when he’s reincarnated in unseen footage from his Stephen Colbert interview to plug his book.
The Duke of Sussex took part in a quickfire question-and-answer session with the chat show host, in a segment that wasn’t originally aired with the rest of his discussion about ‘Spare’.
Harry revealed in the eight-and-a-half-minute clip that he thinks humans are reincarnated as animals when they die, and that if he got to choose what to become, he would pick an elephant.
He also nodded to his departure from the Royal Family when asked to describe the rest of his life in five words, to which he replied: ‘Freedom, happiness, clarity, space, love’.
Other answers included him declaring ‘cockpit’ when asked if he prefers a window or aisle seat, Gladiator was revealed as his favourite action movie, while he also told the story of asking England’s World Cup-winning rugby team for autographs while they were ‘naked, with their willies hanging out’.

The Q&A begins with the question of ‘best sandwich’, to which Harry replied: ‘A cheese and ham toastie with Dijon mustard on top’.
He and Colbert then discuss the nuances between Americanisms and Britishisms, such as the differing use of the word ‘fanny’ and different pronunciations of ‘basil’, ‘oregano’ and ‘vitamin’.
Harry says: ‘Horse riding or horse back riding – where else are you going to ride the horse?’ before gesturing as if he was clinging on and adding: ‘That instantly becomes a meme.’
The next question sees him reveal that ‘ripped boxer shorts’ are the item he owns but should throw out, and chuckles when the host asks him if they represent ‘fond memories’.
He describes snakes as the scariest animal, adding: ‘I don’t like sharks but at least they’re contained to the ocean, snakes can get everywhere.’
Asked if he prefers apples or oranges, Harry points to his hair and answers: ‘Oranges, duh.’
When Colbert jokes that ‘there’s something weirdly cannibalistic about that’, the Duke replies: ‘You know if we bite you, we get gingivitis. You secretly want to be bitten, don’t you?’
Quizzed on whether he’s ever asked for an autograph, Harry says that he asked England’s World Cup-winning team of 2003 to sign his rugby top ‘after a few drinks’ following their triumph in Australia.
‘I was walking around going: ‘Jonny, Jonny, Mike, Mike, Laurence, sign my shirt!’
‘They were all standing there naked with their willies hanging out. I got all 15 signatures and I was very happy with that.’

When declaring that he’d prefer to sit in the cockpit of a plane, rather than a window or aisle seat, the crowd cheers and applauds and he clinks his glass with the host.
He then describes ‘my wife’ as his favourite smell and jokingly points towards Colbert when asked for his least favourite smell.
BetterUp is revealed as the most used app on Harry’s phone, as he adds: ‘It’s a coaching platform. It’s the quickest access to mental health coaching.’
The audience cheers and applauds again when he says he ‘obviously’ prefers dogs to cats, before performing another cringeworthy gesture.
Finley Quaye’s Love Gets Sweeter Every Day is revealed as the song he would pick if he could only listen to one for the rest of his life, before he tells Colbert: ‘You need more love in your life’.
A painstaking exchange then emerges when Harry incorrectly guesses the number the presenter is thinking of.
He says: ‘Whoa hang on a second, are these the same questions you ask everybody else? Has anyone ever got it right? Have you ever told anybody? Is there even a number you’re thinking about? Is it between one and ten? What do I win?’
Colbert replies: ‘You get to be known by people. What do we most want to be, Harry? Not alone. You want to be known. You’re welcome.’
Harry then rolls his eyes, exhales and jokingly acts as if he’s speaking into a microphone in his jacket, saying: ‘Security, can you guys come and get me out of here, this is seriously awkward.’
The final question of the segment asks him to describe the rest of his life in five words, to which the Duke replies: ‘Freedom, happiness, clarity, space, love’.
