Student Who Hugged Meghan Markle During Her Visit Apologizes To Prince Harry For 'Cuddling' His Wife in a Letter

Student Aker Okoye has written a letter to Prince Harry after meeting, and hugging, his wife, Meghan Markle over the weekend.

The letter, published through The Sun paper, is written as an apology of sorts to Harry, after Aker got to hug Meghan following his speech during her visit to the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham in support of International Women’s Day.

“Dear Harry and Meghan; Harry, hope you don’t mind me writing this letter. I hope you didn’t mind me cuddling your wife. I was just overwhelmed and shocked to see her arrive at my school,” Aker wrote. “It was a pleasure to hear her speech and to speak in front of her as well. She truly is inspirational.”

Aker told the paper that meeting and “cuddling” the Duchess of Sussex was the “best day of my life so far.”

“I’ve written the letter to make sure Harry doesn’t have a problem with it and to say sorry really and that I hope he didn’t mind,” he shared with the paper. “Meghan didn’t – she found it funny and I’m sure Harry will as well. When she asked which brave young man wanted to do a talk I jumped at the chance.”

“I lept up there. I thought it would be proper protocol to give her a cuddle. It’s all a blur. The whole crowd erupted.”

You can read his full letter at The Sun.
