Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to be the best parents. The royal couple got a chance to show off their nurturing side during a stop at Dubbo City Regional Airport in Australia on Wednesday (Oct. 17) when they met a sweet five-year-old boy named Luke Vincent. The Dubbo schoolboy had been lined up for hours waiting for the Duke of Duchess to arrive. When they finally reached him, little Luke was so excited he couldn't help but give the royals his biggest, warmest hugs.
Oprah Magazine shared a video of the sweet moment on Instagram, saying what we all feel in their caption. "We are all the announcers shrieking and awwing in the background...Who else thinks this is the best Royal’s tour ever?" Definitely plug your headphones in to watch this video because Oprah Magazine is right - the announcers hooting and hollering over how adorable this video is a must listen.
Luke, who has Down syndrome, was mesmerized by Prince Harry's bright red beard and hair, as well. Before going in for a cuddle, Luke made sure to give Harry's beard an adorable little tug. “I was very concerned once he started rubbing Prince Harry’s face and his hair, but Prince Harry was completely gracious,” Luke's Mom said. “And was so polite and realized what was happening and his infatuation with his beard."
Luke is turning into a mini-celebrity himself in Australia after the moment was broadcast live on TV. “I know that the school was watching it back here and there wasn’t a dry eye in the school while they were watching,” his mom said of the viral moment. “So he’s often the star of the show at school and is now a star of the show all round the world.”
This is definitely a memory Luke and his mom will cherish for a long time. By the smiles on Prince Harry and Meghan's faces, it was a special moment for them, too.
