Well, that was unexpected...

In news that is particularly left-of-field for the Royal Family, an appearance for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has taken an awkward turn because of an accidental drop of the f-bomb. 

As The Sun has reported today, the drama went down during a visit to Bristol. A young boy was captured chatting with the royal pair about Bristol’s Old Vic theatre when he casually said:

"You can't just be f**king around on stage." 

It took a moment for the parents-to-be to register the awkward slip, but quickly let out a giggle in response. 

In the footage, which has obviously gone viral now, you can see Prince Harry bend down to attempt to calm the student's nerves - and potentially intercept any further cussing - while Markle stifles a laugh. 

Honestly, we're surprised this doesn't happen more often considering how excited people get to meet the Royals... 

Here's hoping the kid isn't too mortified/didn't get too much of a talking to afterwards. 

The eventful appearance was part of a larger exploration of the area where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited not only the Old Vic theatre, but One25 charity (which works with women impacted by addiction, sex work and the like) and Empire Fighting Chance (a program that works with troubled children through boxing).
