Irish star reveals what he said to leave Prince Harry in stitches
Irish actor Barry Keoghan had Prince Harry in stitches during his visit to Ireland last week by revealing that the pair now share a common trait.
Prince Harry and new wife Meghan Markle were in Ireland for their first trip as a married couple.
While in Ireland, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent time learning about Ireland’s history and modern culture. They visited the Famine memorial, the EPIC museum, which tells the story of Irish emigration and the diaspora.
They also visited Croke Park and the DogPatch Labs – the home of Ireland’s thriving technology industry.
They met Keoghan at a summer garden party at Glencairn House – home of the British ambassador. Photos have been posted on social media which show Harry having a good laugh with the Dunkirk and The Killing of a Sacred Deer star.
Keoghan appeared on the Ryan Tubridy Show on Friday and revealed what he had said that had Harry in hysterics.
Keoghan said: “You know that moment where we’re laughing? Everyone’s like, ‘What was it?'”
“He [Prince Harry] said to me, ‘We met at Dunkirk. You were a little different – your hair was different.’
Keoghan then said: “Yeah, I know, I’m ginger now!”
Keoghan played a dark-haired teenager who joined in the civillian rescue mission in last year’s Dunkirk but is now proudly sporting ginger locks ahead of his latest movie ‘Black 47’.
He posted the photo of his meeting with the Prince with the caption: “When Harry met the King of Ireland.”

He told Tubridy about the party.
He said: “There was a DJ there [2fm’s Louise McSharry], a few glasses of wine. Then they came along there, shook hands and had a chat with everyone. And away they went!
“Harry really is cool; he’s a nice lad. He’s easy to talk to.”
"I have the greatest confidence that the friendship, collaboration and mutual understanding that our two countries have built up over the years will endure and it will grow." — The Duke of Sussex #RoyalVisitIreland 🇮🇪: https://t.co/YnfzAFW5Ea pic.twitter.com/cuNIlxvKQF
