Move over, George Clooney: Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne appear to have their eyes on the title of Hollywood’s premier pranksters. So devoted are the friends and former Suicide Squad co-stars to the art of practical jokes that they’ve taken their tricks to a new level — by actually prank calling Prince Harry.
"Cara knows Harry and while we were filming Suicide Squad she was like, 'Let’s prank call him,'" the Oscar-nominated actress told The Sun over the weekend. While the I, Tonya star initially took a little persuading from Cara, she eventually decided to give it a go — and luckily, the fifth in line to the throne saw the funny side. Royals, they’re just like us, hey?
"I said, 'We can’t prank call royalty,' but anyway we did — and he was so cool with it. Prince Harry is so nice — England literally has the coolest royalty in the world," she told the newspaper.
Margot and the Prince first met at a party for Suki Waterhouse back in 2015, though their friendship didn’t exactly have the most auspicious of beginnings, with the actress initially confusing Harry for another famous redhead. "When I saw him in those glasses [at the party], I was like, 'Oh my God, I didn’t know Ed Sheeran was at the party!'" she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. "And he got really offended. He wasn’t wearing a crown though! Like, I don’t know it’s a prince!" She’s since revealed that Harry is "pretty quick on text actually" (whereas Margot herself is a little more laid-back, writing back "four days later, weeks later sometimes").
Naturally, all this gives rise to one major question: Will Margot and her husband Tom Ackerley add a touch of Hollywood glamour to the already star-studded guest list for Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May? She certainly doesn’t think so.
"We see each other every so often at a party here or there, but [we’re] not close friends," she told the hosts of The Kyle & Jackie Show back in January, before specifying that they are "definitely" not close enough to merit a wedding invitation.
