A historic clip of Prince Harry running is doing the rounds again, becoming the internet's go-to meme. But what was the original interview, and why did he leg it?

Back in 2013, Prince Harry was giving an interview at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, when it was cut short by what appeared to be an urgent mission.

Scrambling to remove his mic, the young royal (then 28 years old) made a dash for it to join his crew, who were rushing to the Apache helicopter.

After completing his training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Prince Harry was commissioned as a cornet, serving with his brother William for a while, before serving in Helmand, Afghanistan for ten weeks between 2007-2008.

In 2012-2013, Prince Harry was deployed in Afghanistan again, before finally leaving the army in June 2015.
