Prince Harry declares he is 'anti-selfie' as he refuses photograph with young woman in South Africa

By Claire Cromie

Prince Harry has declared he is "anti-selfie", refusing to have a photograph taken with a member of Desmond Tutu’s entourage in South Africa.

He was presenting the retired Archbishop with the Order of the Companion of Honour when the young woman asked him to have a picture with her.

The Prince replied: "I'm afraid I'm anti-selfie."

It's not the first time he's taken a tough line against the social media craze.

During his tour to Australia in April he urged an admirer not to take a selfie with him, saying "Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you’re young, but selfies are bad.

"Just take a normal photograph."

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge poses for selfies with in Sydney, Australia.

Prince Harry has set himself apart from his brother William, who this year broke with royal protocol to pose for pictures with the Australian public, establishing himself as the selfie king.

And who can forget the moment when the Queen became the subject of a selfie in Belfast, when a young boy took a cheeky snap of both of them during her trip to St George's Market.
