Prince Harry inherited ‘obsessive’ habit from Charles that baffles Meghan Markle

Prince Harry inherited a trait from Prince Charles that left his wife Meghan Markle baffled, the prince revealed.

Speaking candidly in a 2018 BBC documentary, the royal stated that he was "obsessed" with turning off the lights – a habit he picked up from his environmentally conscious father, The Express reports.

"He's a stickler for turning lights off," Harry said, speaking about Prince Charles in the BBC documentary called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.

"And that's now something that I'm obsessed with as well, which is insane because actually, my wife goes 'Well, why turn the lights off? You know it's dark'," the royal continued.

"I go 'we only need one light, we don't need like six', and all of a sudden, it becomes a habit and those small habit changes he's making, every single person can do.

"And I think that's one of the key lessons certainly that I felt that he taught us."

Prince William is also reportedly "obsessed" with turning lights out around the house.

"I know I've got serious OCD on light switches now which is terrible," the Duke of Cambridge said.

The two brothers gained another habit from Prince Charles too, and Prince Harry revealed he was even mocked for it in school.

Harry said he would "get taken the mickey out of" at school as a result of his love for picking up litter.

"I used to get taken the mickey out of at school for just picking up rubbish," the Duke said.

He added: "I don't go consciously looking for it. When you go for walks anywhere, if you see something, it stands out, you pick it up.

"It's like I've literally done this because I'm programmed to do it because my father did it.

"Actually, we should all be doing it."
