Prince Harry wants to be reggae DJ

London - Britain's Prince Harry wants to become a reggae music DJ, according to his friends.

The 27-year-old royal has been inspired to get behind the decks and play music from the genre ever since he visited Jamaica in March and met Rita Marley, the widow of music legend Bob Marley, who died in May 1981.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Harry has always been interested in music, but Jamaica was a real eye opener. He started looking into reggae as soon as he got back to the UK.

'Unlikely to DJ in public'

"Meeting Rita Marley was a great inspiration too. She seems to have had a big impact on him."

Harry has been increasing his music collection by purchasing reggae on vinyl from specialist online stores and he is thought to be hoping to get good enough at mixing records at parties, although he is "unlikely" to ever be able to show off his newfound skills in public.

The source added: "He's unlikely to ever DJ in public - but if he did it'd be the party of the year."

The flame-haired royal visited Jamaica as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour of the Caribbean, where he was representing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, in her 60th year on the throne.

During the trip, Harry met Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt and the country's Prime Minister Portia Simpson.
