Adorable moments of kids freaking out when they meet the royal family

Anyone meeting Meghan Markle for the first time might easily be star-struck — a well-known actress turned duchess isn’t someone you come across very often.

But a special little boy not only got to stand next to the Duchess of Sussex, he was also able to touch her face and hair. When Walter Cullen, three, met Meghan and Prince Harry during their visit to Dublin last week, the little boy reached out to touch the Duchess of Sussex’s brunette locks before clasping his palm to his mouth in disbelief.

The precious images of his stunned reaction have gone viral.

And he’s not the only child who had a cute reaction to meeting a member of the royal family. Here are some choice shots, including adorable little girls meeting Kate Middleton, a little boy in a corgi suit meeting Prince Charles, and Princess Diana letting a toddler play with her necklace.

We hope these photos light up your day!
