Shaggy has revealed that Prince Harry is an unlikely fan of his.
The singer, 54, made the revelation on Friday morning during an appearance on Lorraine, to enthralled stand-in host Christine Lampard.
Shaggy also recalled the joke The Duke of Sussex made during their first meeting, which took place when Prince Harry visited a children’s hospital in Jamaica which the Reggae star supports.
He said: ‘There’s a hospital I support called The Bustamante Hospital and his mum was supposed to have started it. He supported it like Di did before. He came to visit. Me being the patron of the hospital I was one of the guys to meet him.
‘My daughter wanted to see a prince at the time. He just walked up met her, looked at me and shook my hand and said ”it wasn’t me.” That was one of those situations.

Shaggy’s most successful song, It Wasn’t Me, tells the tale of one man’s dilemma after he is caught cheating on his girlfriend, and although it was a controversial hit at the time, it became the best selling UK single of 2001.
The star, who has two sons from a previous relationship and three daughters with wife Rebecca, is famed for his sexually charged lyrics, with many of his songs detailing his appreciation for beautiful women.
Elsewhere on Lorraine, Shaggy spoke of his upcoming performance at the Notting Hill Carnival.
He said: ‘I’ve done this carnival quite a few times. The weather was bad but everybody came out in the streets having a good time. Every race colour creed is embracing the Caribbean culture.
Of his latest single, he explained: ‘The single was written in the middle of the pandemic. The album is called In The Mood. You put it on and your feel like its one big party.’
Asked how he manages to do so much, and how he’s had such a long career, Shaggy admitted: ‘I’m allergic to boredom. I’m not scared.
‘I don’t think you can achieve greatness without being uncomfortable. If I feel like I’m getting too comfortable, I go for that challenge.
‘I keep my finger on that pulse. Whenever culture shifts you wanna be a part of it. It drives me it makes me wanna get up. I’m full of gratitude for the 30 year career I’ve had. If I don’t play Gratitude at a show I have people in my DMs cussing me out.
