Prince Harry is the guest of Stephen Colbert on January 12, 2023.
The sketch of Prince Harry’s arrival involved two heralds, Trumpets and Tom Hanks.
The fanfare was not intended for the Duke of Sussex, but for the American actor.
When Prince Harry and Tom Hanks make fun of the monarchy together. For the promotion of his autobiographical book Spare, the Duke Sussex conducted numerous interviews. On January 12, 2023, the son of King Charles III of England appeared in a teaser for CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The Duke of Sussex, 38, as reported by the Daily Mail, has mocked the royal pageantry. In the sketch, two heralds each with a trumpet and Stephen Colbert were impatiently saying, “Where is he?”.
Next, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, enters the camera frame after turning the corner of the hallway with the gait of a man more or less in a hurry. As Meghan Markle’s husband walks the red carpet, the heralds – dressed up for the occasion – start the fanfare. “Woah, woah, woah, stop, stop. Stephen, it’s not necessary, but thank you, I appreciate it,” the 38-year-old Duke told Stephen Colbert. To which the host replied: “What are you talking about? It’s not for you!”. Colbert then invites Prince William’s brother to step aside, specifying: “Push yourself, he’s coming!”.

This is where Hollywood star Tom Hanks comes into the picture. His arrival in the corner of the corridor is filmed. With a big smile on his face, the ’66 actor jokingly exclaims, “I’m back! Where’s my marching band?” While Tom Hanks is being funny, Prince Harry throws red rose petals at his head. According to the Daily Mail, the trumpeters featured on the Late Show wore uniforms that appeared to be replicas of the official dress worn by state trumpeters of the Household Cavalry.
