He joked that his least favorite smell is the show's host, Stephen Colbert, and also talked about his explosive memoir, 'Spare' on the show.
Keeping in line with his recent stream of way-too-personal revelations, Prince Harry has revealed that his wife, Megan Markle, is his favorite smell. This got royal fans gushing about the couple's relationship yet again while others found the answer repulsive. The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex shared this little tidbit during a February 28, 2023, appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, while answering Colbert's 15 burning questions.
Harry was promoting his explosive memoir, Spare, when the host asked Harry a plethora of random questions. While some of his responses were unexpected, Prince Harry had one response that made us want to send the royal a little note about oversharing. When Colbert asked what his favorite smell is, the father of two paused for a moment to consider the question. "Favourite smell..." he said under his breath, before letting out a whiff. "My wife," he stated confidently while joking that Colbert was his least favorite smell.
If you don’t know his favorite sandwich, or whether he prefers the window or the aisle on an airplane, do you really know Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex?

The host also asked Harry about his favorite sandwich. It's a "cheese and ham toastie with Dijon mustard on top," Harry responded. "Like a panini press?" Colbert wondered. "I have to be sort of careful with these questions because the Americanisms to the British-isms, it's very different," Harry said. "Got me and my wife into a little trouble at the beginning of our relationship."

Prince Harry: My wife
Me: I can either interpret this as romantic & sweet or straight up on some freaky shit.
Knowing Prince Harry….it might be both. I’m trying to keep my head out the gutter. I’m not doing a good job. pic.twitter.com/09xK1ccUtb

He was then asked what is the one thing he needs to get rid of and he replied, "ripped boxer shorts." He explained that he didn't feel like getting rid of them just yet because of the happy memories attached to them. When asked which animal scares him the most, the prince claimed, "I don't like sharks but at least they're contained to the ocean. Snakes can get anywhere."
Harry said he prefers "Oranges, duh," when asked to choose between apples and oranges. "There's something cannibalistic about that," Colbert joked, referring to Harry's ginger-hued hair. "If we bite you, you get gingivitis," Harry shot back. Not much to our surprise the interview simply got even more hilariously absurd from that point.
Colbert then curiously enquired if Harry had ever requested a celebrity for their autograph. The royal replied: "The England rugby team at the 2003 World Cup Rugby Final." When asked what he thinks happens when we die, Harry shared that he believes "we become animals." He added that he'd like to be reincarnated as an elephant in his next life.
If this wasn't enough of a too-much-information session, he also shared that if he had to listen to one song for the rest of his life he'd jam up to Your Love Gets Sweeter Every Day by Finley Quaye. He also got a chance to display his psychic abilities when he rightly guessed "one" to be the number Colbert was thinking of.
And finally, Harry's go-to words to describe his life would be, "freedom (from the royals), happiness (after sniffing Megan), clarity (to reincarnate as an elephant), space (from the media), and love (for oranges)." Phew! Those sure were some hellishly hilarious reveals!
