Prince Harry takes part in pub quiz – but loses to his team of bodyguards

Prince Harry delighted locals on New Zealand's tiny Stewart Island this week, as he took part in their local pub quiz. Harry spent a "hilarious" night at the South Sea Hotel – the only pub on the island – joining a team called The Ginger Ninjas, named in his honour.

Despite being given an advantage with some royal-themed trivia questions – answers included Eton Mess and corgis - Harry and his team came second in the quiz. They were beaten by a group made up of Harry's personal protection officers, who excelled in the first round, answering questions about bodyguards.

Harry spent the night on Steward Island – population 381 people - on what was the second day of his official one-week tour of New Zealand. The pub had made some adjustments in honour of their VIP – their revised menu included Windsor Wedges, Harry's Hotpot, Sandringham Salmon and Cambridge Calamari.

Quizmaster Vicki Coats said Harry was "just a really nice, down-to-earth guy".

"He can some back again – he'd fit right in," she told The Southland Times. "Just normal. No pretension."

Despite his visit to the pub, Harry was up bright and early the next morning. "A photo of the stunning sunrise over Stewart Island taken by Prince Harry this morning – he wanted to share it with you! #NoFilter #RoyalVisitNZ," read a message posted on the official Kensington Palace Instagram account.

Harry is the first member of the royal family to make an official visit to Stewart Island, and shortly after arriving stopped and spoke to a group of local women who were there to welcome him. "You're such a small community. Is this all of you?" he joked. As he shook hands with one of the ladies, the kind-hearted Prince then commented: "You're freezing cold, aren't you? Sorry we were delayed, we got held up."
