Los Angeles - Prince Harry snubbed Jack Whitehall after the comedian mocked him during the Royal Variety Show.

The 31-year-old royal decided to give the funnyman a taste of his own medicine backstage after the show by pretending to walk away rather than shake his hand following the Bad Education star's awkward jibes throughout the performance.

However, proving he's a good sport and had taken the digs in his stride, the flame-haired hunk burst into a fit of laughter, shook Jack's hand and began nattering away to him.

Throughout the show, Harry was in the firing line for the comedian's hilarious jokes as he poked fun at the Prince's ginger hair, his love for partying and his single status.

Speaking to the audience at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Jack - who hosted the performance - joked: "He may only be a prince, but when it comes to banter, all hail the king."

Clearly impressed with the 27-year-old presenter's gags, Harry threw his head back and let out a roaring laugh.

But the mocking didn't stop there as Jack added: "I don't think there is anybody who wouldn't want Prince Harry to be put in charge of the country for a week.

"Can you imagine? It would be like when parents leave their kids at home to go on holiday!"

Seemingly unamused by the roasting, Harry shook his head and wiggled his finger before Jack commented on his hair.

He said: "I think you're the first person to get a Victoria Cross for bravery just for stepping out of the shade in Afghanistan... I mean a ginger in that heat!"
