Harry Enters William and Kate into the London Marathon

Royal Joker Prince Harry, patron of the London Marathon, said yesterday that William and Kate were going to run the London Marathon in 2013.

The Prince, who attended yesterday’s marathon in his role as Patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, was being interviewed on the BBC when he said, "What's fantastic is that my brother and his wife will be doing it next year, I think.”

Interviewer Sue Barker said, ‘You’ve just said that live on air,’ to which Harry replied, “He’s going to have to do it now, isn’t he?’

A spoilsport at Clarence House later said the royal couple had no firm plans to enter the race, adding: "It was said in jest."

The Prince presented prizes to the winners of the men's and women's races –Kenyans Wilson Kipsang and Mary Keitany.
