Five-year-old Luke Vincent, who has Down's syndrome, was quite excited to meet both the Duke and Duchess. He gave Prince Harry a cheeky tug on his beard and Meghan found the whole thing hilarious.
Luke melted hearts, including Harry's, who gave the boy a hug as Meghan looked on adoringly.
It was reported that Luke is a kindergarten pupil at Buninyong Public School. According to the school's principal, Anne Van Dartel, Luke was absolutely transfixed by Harry's facial hair. So, as soon as the royal bent down to interact with the boy, the natural thing for Luke to do was to go straight for the beard.
She revealed that Luke considered Prince Harry his second favorite person, the first being Santa Claus, who also has a beard. She explained that it was such a thrill for Luke and the rest of the kids to meet the royals they normally only saw on TV.

"Good choice, Good man."
