Prince Harry is one of the most photographed men in the world.

But the British royal, who is set to tie the knot to Meghan Markle next weekend, is not a fan of selfies as one Aussie celeb found out when he refused to have one taken with him.

Sydney Rabbitohs player Sam Burgess has revealed that when met the sixth in line to the throne recently, Harry wouldn’t let him take a quick snap.

Talking about a time the prince visited the ‘sheds’ at a game he played in Twickenham, UK, Sam told Nova breakfast hosts Fitzy & Wippa he described Harry as a “good fella”.

“I tried to take a picture,” Sam said, describing how he whipped his phone out to take the classic selfie shot.

But Harry had other ideas.

“He stopped me, ‘No, no, no selfies’,” the 29-year-old said, explaining that instead he asked someone else to take their photo.

Despite being snubbed for a selfie, Sam said he “appreciated” the fact Harry didn’t like those type of photos and explained it’s a “rule that he sticks to”.

Sam isn’t the only person Harry has refused to take a selfie with, as in 2015 he refused to have one of the self-taken photos with a fan in Canberra.

“No, I hate selfies,” he told her, according The Telegraph. “Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you’re young, but selfies are bad.”

But just like he did with Sam, he happily posed for a traditional photo with her.

Guess we won’t be seeing any wedding day selfies then. #Devo
