Meghan Markle proved she will be a princess for the people, as she comforted a shy schoolgirl during a royal engagement with fiancé Prince Harry, Thursday.
The bride-to-be stepped aside to have a quiet word with seven-year-old Eloise.
The little girl after was led away crying during a performance for the royal couple at a Cardiff community centre.
Kneeling down to hold the girl’s hand, Meghan, 36, reassured her: ‘I used to be shy too.’
Looking on, Harry, 35, soon joined them in the corner and shook the girl’s hand.
After checking Eloise was being cared for, the royal couple returned to watching the others perform their routine.
After they had finished their performance, the proud prince encouraged the group of dancers to ‘mob’ his bride to be, saying: ‘Let’s all give Meghan a group hug!’
Meghan beamed as the excited children crowded around, reaching out to wrap their arms around her.
They were more than happy to oblige, it led to Prince Harry jokingly telling the group: ‘Okay that’s enough she’s mine.’
Harry and Meghan were particularly keen to see the work of StreetGames, which the prince has worked with previously.
The organization works to make sport accessible to all young people, regardless of their social circumstances.
Meanwhile the couple were met by hoards of screaming crowds when they stepped out of their car in Cardiff.
The Prince shook his head in shock upon hearing the jovial crowd.
