Being a royal means that you'll have to follow certain sets of rules, and the Duke of Sussex broke a big one very recently.
A University student named India Brown was part of the large crowd of royal fans who were at the Royal Botanic Gardens, desperate to catch a glimpse of both Prince Harry and his pregnant wife.
Even though she was just like anyone else, she was the envy of all when the Duke accepted her request for a hug. The excited 19-year-old happily wrapped her arms around Prince Harry, who then reportedly whispered something super cute in her ear.
India, who was struggling to hold back tears, later told reporters what Harry had said to her:
He just said ‘you are going to get me into trouble’.
Speaking to Yahoo 7 News, India revealed that she has always been a big fan of Prince Harry, and had looked forward to meeting him for many years.
Everything he stands for is amazing. I’ve loved that family since I was eight and I’ve followed them around the world.
It's pretty amazing that the Duke took the time to make a young girl's wish come true.
Did Harry break protocol?
Well, according to the Royal Family's official website, the general public are advised to "observe the traditional forms" of greeting when meeting a member of the royal family.
For men, this is a neck bow (from the head only) whilst women do a small curtsy. Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way.
The website, however, made it clear that this is not obligatory. So, we now understand why royals like Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry have often been spotted hugging fans in public.
