Prince Harry photobomb We're getting close to a point where you could imagine a five-year-old bounding into his parents' room and crying, "Mommy, Daddy, if I photobomb a selfie that some strangers are taking, will I become a prince, too?"

Just last week, the Queen made headlines for giddily angling her way into a selfie taken by two field-hockey players at the Commonwealth Games; and before that, Kate and William have both gotten their photobomb on, as well. (We know, we know, we're using a very loose definition of "photobomb" here, as none of these examples truly captures the "Surprise! You had no idea I was going to crash your photo!" nature of a standard photobomb; but, we're dealing with a group of people who shun Twitter and are still listening to Linkin Park-that they are even in the vicinity of a relatively new fad like photobombing deserves our support and slack-cutting.)
Anyway, we now have a new one to add the collection, as Harry pulled off an impressive photobomb of three New Zealand officials Monday at the Commonwealth Games (yes, the same games where Kate cemented her status as World's Best Sports Spectator). Harry went with the open-mouth, double-thumbs-up look, which is all the more delightful given the less-than-thrilled facial expressions evident on the woman directly in front of him and the man to his far right.
Harry will never be accused of not making the most of life. The photograph was posted on Facebook last night by former Olympic boxer Trevor Shailer, seated in the middle, who captioned the shot, "Photo of the day." (This one does seem to wholly deserve the "photobomb" distinction, by the way, as three gentlemen do not seem to have realized their shot was graced by the Cinnamon Prince himself.) Shailer, naturally, immediately made the photo his profile picture.
