Well, this is one story that’ll surely tug at your heartstrings! While visiting Hamilton Square in Birkenhead, England on Monday, Jan. 14, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took time to chat with some of their young royal fans. And while most people wanted to know about the Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy, things quickly became all about one special interaction the couple had with a group of kids that folks can’t stop talking about.
During the event, a woman named Tracee Marie took to Twitter to share the beautiful moment that Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, had with a young blind girl. Tracee posted two photos: in one, Harry holds on to the girl to keep her safe, and in the other, Meghan is seen touching a card written in Braille. “The little girl with the grey hat with a black bobble (My niece who is blind) Harry held on to her ensuring she was safe,” the woman described on Twitter. “Meghan went down on the floor to take a card she had made for her in braille. They’ll make great parents.”
The lovely interaction didn’t stop there, as according to People, some of the blind kids in the crowd were able to touch the Duke and Duchess’ face. “In the square, there were some blind children who wanted to touch the royal faces because they couldn’t see them,” Frank Field, a Member of the Parliament, said. “Both of them went down on their haunches so the children could touch their faces.”
While this moment deservedly stole the attention, Meghan and Harry also had the chance to meet with veterans as well as people from the local community center, Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, while on their outing. The latter is an organization that offers support groups for people suffering from domestic abuse, mental health issues and more. The pair’s visit to Birkenhead was their first public appearance of 2019 — we’re looking forward to many more throughout the year!
