Prince Harry said "I dont think Im allowed" after darts crowds chant at him
Prince Harry didn't think he was allowed to wave back at the crowd during a night out at the darts.
The fun-loving Prince has never been one to do things by the book, and in 2011 he swapped Buckingham Palace for Alexandra Palace and a night on the beer watching the arrows. The Duke of Sussex watched on in awe as darting royalty Phil Taylor booked his place in the final with a 6-0 win over Darren Webster.
TV cameras captured Harry having a good time – and Barry Hearn has now claimed in his autobiography that the 37-year-old was involved in a right royal knees up that involved an incredible 60 pints. Prince Barry (that's the Matchroom chief) also revealed one thing the real Prince didn't think he was allowed to do on his visit to the darts – wave to the crowd.
In his autobiography, extracts of which have been published by The Sun, Hearn said: "At one stage a chant went up: 'Harry, Harry, give us a wave!'
"I looked at him and said: 'If you stand up and wave back, your street credibility will be cemented for a lifetime.' Harry smiled. 'I do not think I am allowed to,' he said."
Hearn also claimed that the Prince suggested they all go to a nightclub together, an invitation the former darts boss had to turn down.
"At the end, Harry said they were off to a nightclub and would we like to come? 'Not us,' I said. 'You guys are too dangerous,' he wrote.

Harry clearly enjoyed his visit to Ally Pally, because he returned to the people's place in 2014 to watch Stephen Bunting defeat James Wade 4-1. The Prince was seen laughing with his pals as he watched the second round clash.
Bunting joked afterwards: "I didn't know Harry was here. I'm going to have a pint with him now! But it is great that darts is getting this type of coverage."
The Prince's appearance went down a storm with darts fans at the time, including one who tweeted: "Prince Harry at the darts, just make the man king." Er, about that.
