Meghan Markle ignores royal protocol and hugs charity worker

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently toured Cardiff Castle in Wales. The couple was greeted by the massive crowd that waited for them despite their late arrival.

Prince Harry apologized to the fans and said that their train arrived an hour late. During their visit, Markle and the prince received a special gift from two kids who are also named Meghan and Harry. The youngsters gave the couple a love spoon that had a unique carving.

On their way inside the Cardiff Castle, Markle and Prince Harry were welcomed by a group of Welsh singers. The prince couldn't help but gush over them, and he told Markle that they are so in tune. Upon entering the castle, Markle praised the structure and called it a "beautiful space."

Couple's Official Visits

Markle and Prince Harry's recent Cardiff tour is part of their official visits before their wedding. They are expected to visit other parts of the United Kingdom before May 19. They have also visited Prince Harry's hometown, Nottingham, days after they announced their engagement. The couple also went to Brixton earlier this month.

The royal couple also made an impact on the kids at the community center. Upon their arrival, a group of adorable kids performed in front of the two but the Suits alum noticed that one of the girls was crying. The kids' teacher led the crying girl away from the group so she will not disrupt the performance.

Meghan Markle's Sweet Gesture

Markle immediately ran toward the 7-year-old girl named Eloise and told her that she used to be shy, too. When Prince Harry saw his fiancée, he went to Eloise and shook her hand. After their brief encounter, Eloise was already smiling in front of the cameras.

Following the kids' performance, Prince Harry urged everyone to give Markle a tight hug. The kids rushed to Markle and did not want to let her go. Prince Harry hilariously told them that Markle is his fiancée so that the kids would stop hugging her.

Dean Maynard, the center assistant dean, revealed that the kids were mesmerized the minute they saw the couple.

"As soon as they walked in the door, the kids were mesmerized. A lot of the kids, it takes them quite a bit to actually get involved and interact with other people, so to see them all really smiling and happy and involved, that was nice feeling for me, personally," said Maynard.
