Prince Harry was filmed scolding a royal reporter this week, just hours after he slammed the British press in an explosive statement.
Earlier this week, the Duke of Sussex visited the Mauwa Health Centre in Malawi when well-known Sky News journalist Rhiannon Mills started asking him unscheduled questions.
During his visit, Harry spoke to officials about the care the centre provides, and told a group of young people to “hold on” to their dreams.

A quick recap of The Duke’s visit to Malawi, where yesterday he got to see the scale of the work that goes on to protect wildlife and the natural environment, this morning visit a health centre providing community care. The Duke started the day yesterday by paying tribute to Guardsman Matthew Talbot who sadly passed away whilst conducting joint counter-poaching operations in with local park rangers. The Duke then joined a live demonstration of how the British Army, the government of Malawi, local rangers and @AfricanParksNetwork work on a day-to-day basis; conducting a live tracking scenario and the interception of poachers within the National Park. Finally, The Duke was able to unveil a plaque to welcome the Park as the latest member of the Queens Commonwealth Canopy (@queenscanopy). And this morning, The Duke visited the Mauwa Health Centre which is bring life-saving and essential care to this remote community. By making even basic medical supplies available, used and stored correctly in remote areas like this is life-saving. The work done by organisations around Africa to protect the natural environment is invaluable and The Duke passionately believes we need to recognise and support the local communities dedicating their lives, sometimes risking their lives, to protect the world’s most incredible animals and habitats. #RoyalVisitMalawi Video ©️ SussexRoyal
As he was about to leave the centre in a waiting vehicle, Harry was approached by Rhiannon, who asked him: “That short conversation, what do you hope to achieve through it?”
The Prince looked confused as he said, “What? Ask them,” and pointed back towards the centre.
The reporter then proceeded to ask Harry, “Is that why it’s important for you to come and talk to them?”
As he went to get into his car, a visibly upset Harry snapped, “Rhiannon, don’t behave like this.”

The video, published by the MailOnline, was filmed just hours after Harry slammed the British press for bullying his wife, Meghan Markle, in a personal statement.
The statement also confirmed Meghan’s plans to take legal action against the Mail on Sunday, over a private letter they published earlier this year.
