Prince Harry Shares Cute Moment with This Little Boy & There's a Heartwarming Story Behind Their Meeting

During their royal visit, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle landed in Dubbo, Australia on Wednesday (October 17), where they got to meet many fans and spectators in the area.

One little boy with special needs, Luke Vincent, 5, shared an adorable moment with the royal couple where he was seen hugging them and touching Prince Harry‘s beard.

“Luke’s thing is Santa Claus,” Anne van Dartel, principal of Buninyong Public School in the area, told People about the encounter. “And so as soon as he saw [Harry’s beard], we went into the panic mode because he’s touching a member of the royal family! And he continued to do it. And he hugged him. So what you and I can’t get away with, my beautiful friend can.”

“He said ‘Hello young man.’ And Luke just said, ‘Hello Harry.’ And Prince Harry graciously realized that his language is limited. And he introduced him to his wife and said, ‘She would love a cuddle too.’ And he said, ‘Luke will you please give my wife a hug as well?’” she continued.

Anne continued, “So young Luke handed flowers to the duchess and then she said, ‘I would love a cuddle’ so in he went. And then he went back to Harry and then gave him another big cuddle. The man with a beard. And that is him. That is the beauty of Luke.”

“I was explaining to Prince Harry about Luke’s infatuation with beards and Santa Claus and he just laughed and said, ‘How wonderful.’ So he introduced him to his wife. She said something along the lines of ‘Oh, what a beautiful little boy,’“ she recounted.
