While appearing on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” on Monday night, the Hollywood star Rob Lowe shocked his fans by claiming that he had just seen his neighbor Prince Harry rocking a ponytail.

“I just ran into your countryman, the English treasure, Prince Harry, at the stoplight 10 minutes ago,” Lowe said. “He lives about a mile from me. He’s been very reclusive. Seeing him in the neighborhood is like seeing the Loch Ness Monster, and I finally saw him. I finally saw him driving his car.”

“I may have a scoop. It was very, very quick, don’t totally quote me on it, but it looked like he’s wearing a ponytail,” he added. “I’m just saying. It looked to me as a casual observer that his hair had grown very long and was pulled back very tightly by what I can only assume was a ponytail.”

Corden could not help but be skeptical of this, saying, “I’m certain that isn’t true. Do you know what I think’s happened? I think you didn’t see Prince Harry.”

“Oh no, it was him because I have to say I followed him to the house to see if the car went in,” Lowe replied.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle shocked the world a year ago when they announced that they were stepping down as senior members of the British royal family. They have since moved across the world to the ritzy area of Montecito, California, where they have the opportunity to rub shoulders with Hollywood stars like Lowe.

Harry and Meghan seem intent on taking an active role in the entertainment world that is prevalent in Southern California, as they have signed lucrative deals to create content for both Netflix and Spotify.

Yesterday, the The Sunday Times reported that Meghan and Harry are planning to reunite with the royal family for the first time since “Megxit” by attending the Trooping of the Colour, the Queen’s annual birthday parade, on June 12 in London. The military parade will be held in celebration of the Queen’s 95th birthday, and it will be the first national celebration in the United Kingdom since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

“The current plan is for the Queen’s birthday parade to go ahead in London as normal, with the acceptance that it may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time,” a royal aide said. “But the aspiration and the ultimate desire is to make it happen.”
