    Then he slyly added, "Maybe, like some people, you choose to keep it to yourself, and maybe one day you'll accidentally post it to your Instagram Story. Who knows!"

    Many fans are taking Harry's comments as confirmation that he secretly posts to a close friends list and accidentally posted the T-shirt photo to his public story when he meant to share it to close friends.

    While it's not likely that Harry will ever fully share his social media secrets, it's pretty funny to imagine what goes on in his private story!
