Despite agreeing to the photo together, the Duke of Sussex asked Ricky Wilson to not post the image online. Mr Wilson told the Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio: “I don’t know whether he was joking or not, but I have never put it up anywhere.

Mr Wilson explained: “I did a gig once. I was stood in my portable cabin with the band. We shared because we were not at that stage yet.

“Harry comes in and chats to us for a minute in the portacabin.

“I said, ‘Can I have a picture?’ And we had a picture taken with Harry and that was brilliant.”

“Just as he was walking away, [Harry] said, ‘Don’t put that up anywhere.’”

The Kaiser Chiefs singer and former Voice judge added that he didn’t know if the Prince was joking, but complied with the request.

Ms Roslin commented: “I don’t think he was joking.”

Representatives of Prince Harry were contacted for comment.

The Duke has been a lot more open since departing as a full-time member of the Royal Family.

Earlier this year, he and wife Meghan Markle took part in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, which laid bare some of their grievances with other royals and royal life.

Prince Harry is also set to release a tell-all memoir next year about his life as a member of the Royal Family.

It promises to be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account.

In a statement, the Duke wrote: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.

“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

It is not known when the picture was taken. However, the paths of the prince and the Leeds band have crossed before.

In 2014, the Kaiser Chiefs and the Foo Fighters played to around 26,000 at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games.

Also to take to the stage for the grand finale of the event was the Duke, who organised the games.

He read out a statement from the Queen at the concert, who said she sent her “heartfelt congratulations to the organisers and supporters of this competition.”

Prince Harry stated himself ahead of the ceremony: “I am hugely grateful to all the artists and organisers for coming together in September to put on what will be a truly awesome concert.”
