Prince Harry recently sat down with Stephen Colbert. And let's just say, the tea was piping hot. Here's everything you missed, from the reveal of the Duke's nicknames to a hilarious skit with another A-list star...

On Tuesday, January 10, Prince Harry hopped on The Late Show in the latest book tour stop to promote his memoir Spare, which was released on the same day. The 416-page book is an intimate look into Prince Harry’s life. He writes in the book many revealing private stories and parts of his life that usually were kept under lock and key for the first time. So, to calm his nerves, Colbert begins the interview by offering the Duke of Sussex a cocktail, which Prince Harry gladly accepts. Colbert takes out two glasses from his desk and a bottle of tequila. The royal tries offering the audience some drinks, too. Now that is an offer we would gladly accept! The two go on to reveal all the different nicknames that the Duke of Sussex has, from what his wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, calls him to what his brother Prince William uses to address him.

Then, Stephen Colbert asks about a hilarious and relatable story in the memoir involving Prince Harry's royal jewels. When the Duke of Sussex was at the North Pole to walk with a group of veterans, it was freezing. Colbert asked Prince Harry, "At what point did you realize there was a crisis at the South Pole?" to the audience's amusement, who burst out into laughter and applause. Prince Harry joked that it took him to get home to realize that his downstairs region had been frostbitten! He also told Colbert the entire background of the story, which caused the late-night host to burst into fits of laughter. Among other things, the royal admitted that he watched the Netflix show The Crown and that he loves living in California. But there was also a hilarious sketch that featured American actor Tom Hanks. That's right (keep scrolling!).

Lastly, Prince Harry talked about his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. He said that the thing he will remember the most about her is "her sharp wit. Her sense of humor. Her ability to respond to anybody with a completely straight face but totally joking." Prince Harry's memoir is now available - and there's lots more tea where that came from! Check it out here. And stay tuned for more updates.
