Meghan Markle wasn’t more than an hour into her second day of events in Ireland before she completely changed her look — but that didn’t matter to one small fan.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had some sweet interactions with youngsters, with one little boy, three-year-old Walter Cullen, reaching for Meghan’s hair and even her face.

Prince Harry then turned to the boy and playfully began to play along, pointing his finger at the adorable tot as if to tell him off.
