Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis says Prince Harry managed to stay out until 4am at the popular festival.

Eavis, now knighted at Windsor Castle for his services to music and charity, revealed after his ceremony led by the Princess Royal that both the King and his younger son had previously visited the renowned festival at Worthy Farm.

Michael playfully jokedthat “Harry jumped the fence”, stating: “The King came once, Prince Charles. And Harry I think he jumped the fence I should think.

“I’ve got spies everywhere. No, I’ve got security all over the place actually. He enjoyed it. (The then) Prince Charles enjoyed it as well actually. He (Harry) only came once. That was the old Prince Harry, before he went to America.

Back in 2013, Harry was noticed backstage while The Rolling Stones were headlining the Pyramid Stage and he partied until dawn with Sir Michael, reports the Mirror.

Speaking at the festival that year, the dairy farmer stated: “Prince Harry was great actually.

“I recommended he should go on into the night, because the nightlife is what Glastonbury is all about. At three o’clock in the afternoon, you don’t get it.

“I told him to get his taxi driver to come back at five o’clock in the morning and do you know what? He lasted until four in the morning. His friends were all having a great time. He didn’t want to make a formal thing of being here.”

Sir Michael revealed that over three million people expressed interest in attending the festival this year, stating: “I’m so pleased it became a success after all the grafting it took to get there.”

As the world’s largest festival is just weeks away, fans have been strategising their schedules to catch performances from big names like Shania Twain and Coldplay on the iconic Pyramid Stage.

The final resale tickets for the 2024 festival were snapped up in a mere 22 minutes this week. Last November, fans were left fuming when all 200,000 tickets for the £355-per-head event sold out in less than an hour due to glitches on the ticket site.

Many were eager to secure tickets for this week’s event, despite being informed that availability was “very limited”. The general admission tickets were released at 9am, with See Tickets announcing they were all gone by 9.22am.
