“Having been lucky enough to perform for Prince Charles and Prince William in previous years I look forward to the opportunity of sailing a little too close to the wind in the presence of Prince Harry this time round,” said Whitehall.  It’s my third time on the show and I still am yet to perform in front of The Queen, she must be really desperate not to see my act.”
