Despite receiving positive coverage from their ten-day tour of Africa, it has been a difficult week for Prince Harry, who appears to have finally had enough of dealing with media.
Just hours before announcing he was launching legal action against Mail on Sunday while hitting out at the "ruthless" British media in a powerful statement, the Duke of Sussex was caught on camera snapping at a royal reporter in Malawi.
As the new dad was filmed getting into a car after a visit to the Mauwa Health Centre, which was part of his royal tour of Africa, Sky News reporter Rhiannon Mills could be heard trying to ask an unscheduled question.
Mills asks of his speech to a group of young people: "That short conversation, what did you hope to achieve through it?"
The 35-year-old royal, caught off guard, is heard retorting: "What? Ask them."

But Mills persists: "Is that why it's important for you to come and talk to them?"
It's here that Harry clearly becomes frustrated with Mills and gestured for her to move away from him.
As he got in the car, he can be heard snapping: "Rhiannon, don't behave like this."
The confrontation took place hours before the prince released a statement accused the media of waging a "relentless propaganda" campaign against his wife, saying he fears her treatment could mean she suffers the same fate as his late mother.
