Prince Harry's reaction to events after the release of his memoir, Spare, and high-profile interviews has been revealed by artificial intelligence.
Using an AI facial recognition bot, TonerGiant was able to analyse the Duke of Sussex's different emotions in interviews given since the release of the bombshell book, released on January 10.
Twenty still images from the prince's recent interviews with ITV, Good Morning America and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert were analysed by the facial recognition bot Amazon Rekognition as part of the research.

The AI software scanned Harry's face for signs of different emotions, both positive and negative, including surprise, calm, fear, sadness, happiness, and disgust, before calculating the average across all images.
Looking at Harry's facial expressions, the bot found that the Duke mostly came across as calm 70% of the time, during even the most personal of interviews.
The Prince's giveaway countenance also showed he was confused 15% of the time, while he appeared happy 9% of the time and surprised 7% of the time.
Meanwhile, most negative emotions ranked much lower, with Harry coming across as scared just 6% of the time, sad in 3% of images, angry in 2% and disgusted in just 1% of the snaps.

The analysis comes as part of a wider study into members of the Firm's emotions, which has found that both Harry and Meghan Markle have appeared much happier since stepping down from royal duties in 2020.
In 2019, Meghan's happiness level was rated 79.9 out of a possible 100, which increased to 89.2 in 2020, while Harry's happiness level skyrocketed from 55.1 in 2019 to 96.2 after he left the royal family.
However, their joy took a hit between 2020 and 2021, after the pair gave their first controversial interview about their time in the Palace with Oprah Winfrey.
Anna Whitelock, Professor of the History of the Monarchy at City, University of London and Director of the Centre for the Study for Modern Monarchy, told TonerGiant: "Having made the decision to leave the royal family and what has been described as the 'gilded cage', Harry and Meghan have apparently felt more relaxed and happy and more able to control their image.
"There is also no doubt a sense, as they control and curate their public image, that they need to evidence that leaving the royal family was the right decision and a route to personal happiness!"
Although Harry may seem happy, his claims released in his memoir have left a sour taste in the mouths of current royals.
In the book, the Duke accused his father, King Charles, of lying to protect the royals at the expense of him and his wife and even accused his brother, Prince William, of physical violence.
But speaking in a promotional interview in the run-up to the book's release, Harry said: "I love my father. I love my brother. I love my family. I will always do.
"Nothing of what I’ve done in this book or otherwise has ever been to, uh, any intention to harm them or hurt them."
