Aww!Prince Harry Breaks Royal Protocol at His Invictus Games to Visit With a 97-Year-Old Fan
This is so sweet!
Earlier this week, 97-year-old royal fan Daphne Dunne stole our hearts when she received a kiss from Prince Harry (her second one, to be precise).

The 32-year-old royal is currently promoting his Invictus Games in Sydney, Australia and made sure to take time out — and broke royal protocol! — to greet fans outside the Sydney Opera House. And, due to a storm, well-wishers ended up drenched while waiting to see Harry at the venue.

But for Daphne, it was worth it. Prince Harry spotted her from a distance and went straight in for a peck on the cheek. The pair first met back in 2015, when Prince William’s younger brother was working with the Australian Defense Force.
“He kissed me on the other cheek this time,” Daphne gushed to The Telegraph. “He really is a lovely young man and he’s warm and genuine and really cares about the injured servicemen and women, he’s doing a fantastic job supporting them.”

This isn’t the first time Harry has sweetly taken extra time to visit with a fan during a royal engagement. Back in October 2016, Meghan Markle’s famous boyfriend met his adorable redheaded mini-me during a Metropolitan Police Service of Remembrance ceremony in London — and the photos of the two together were too cute for words!
