When you meet your prince, hang onto him, right? One woman in England took that piece of advice a little too literally.
During Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s inaugural visit to Sussex on Wednesday morning, the couple shook hands and kissed babies, per usual. They also indulged a group of school kids in a quick chat sesh.
Harry asked the kids if they were on a school trip, and high-fived them when he learned they had instead skipped class in order to meet him, even saying, “I think that’s fantastic.” (Something tells us Harry was the kind of kid who used “royal obligation” to get out of a few studies in his day.) But when he asked the kids who their teacher was, a hand extended from the crowd with a woman exclaiming, “I’m not letting go!” With a smile, because charm always makes rejection a little easier to swallow, Harry responded, “Please let go.”
