“No I can’t, I can’t accept this,” Harry told Ennis, 24, when she presented him with the gift, according to Us Weekly. “Please, you know what this means to me, I want you to,” Ennis replied.

The dog tags belonged to Corporal Baune, Ennis' colleague who was sadly killed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in 2012 after their unit was hit by a bomb. Ennis was also hurt during battle in a 2012 helicopter crash that left her with severe injuries to her leg.
Ennis met with Harry at Buckingham Palace over the weekend following her 1,000 mile marathon trek through Britain for charity.
