Royal photobombs are seemingly all the rage at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

First, the Queen popped up behind an Australian hockey selfie. Now, Prince Harry has dramatically improved a photo of three New Zealand Commonwealth Games officials. 

Per Tom Decent of The Sydney Morning Herald, "The Prince gave a sneaky thumbs up behind New Zealand rugby sevens coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and Massey University Professor Emeritus Gary Hermansson."

Tietjens, Shailer and Hermansson were taking in the 800m women's swimming freestyle Monday night when Prince Harry popped up with his two thumbs. 

Shailer understandably took the opportunity to share his royal "encounter" on Facebook (above), while Massey University tweeted it out.
