Video: Prince Harry Races World’s Fastest Man Usain Bolt

Publish date:

What exactly British royalty does is a question that’s often lingered in the minds of non-British folks.

They wave a lot, obviously. They count their obscene stacks of family money, of course. But beyond that, what’s their purpose besides more or less owning Canada and playing a prominent role in the Illuminati’s (Jay-Z and Beyonce’s) plan for world domination?

This past week, Prince Harry tried to answer that question. As part of a special tour to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the throne, the 27-year-old met with Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt, in Kingston, Jamaica.

In an effort to show why the people of Jamaica need to maintain their relationship with the monarchy, Prince Harry challenged Bolt to a race for national pride. How did it go? Well, he went on to win the showdown handily and, in doing so, probably cemented the fact that Jamaica will break away. Mind you, just a few weeks ago, Jamaica's Prime Minister Portia Simpson said this about the situation (via CBS): "We will initiate the process of our detachment from the monarchy,"

Prince Harry going full speed on Bolt when the racing superstar was going easy on him will only reinforce that mindset.

Check out the full race below:

No word yet on whether or not Prince Harry shook Bolt's hand before the race.
