Prince Harry Reportedly Gets Apology from High School Student after Hugging Meghan Markle When She Visited His School

16-year-old Aker Okoye is apologetic to Harry for excitedly greeting his wife, Meghan Markle with a hug during her visit.

The Duchess of Sussex proceeded to Robert Clack Upper School, East London, to mark the International Women's Day.

After her speech to the students of the school, she asked for the contributions of any male student. The school's head boy, Aker leapt to the invitation as he hurried to the stage.

His first gesture to the former senior royal member was to cuddle with her after she flung her arms open for a hug.

The teenager has, however, come out to apologize to Prince Harry over his actions via a letter. He wrote :

"Dear Harry and Meghan, Harry, hope you don't mind me writing this letter. I hope you didn't mind me cuddling your wife. I was just overjoyed and shocked to see her [..]."

The letter further shared the experience he had with the guest whom he detailed as "truly inspirational."

Aker mentioned that he was starstruck, and told Harry he was aware of his visit to his hometown, East London, a few weeks ago.

The Duchess of Sussex interacted with some school teachers and visited some of the school's facilities. 

Although Aker missed the 35-year-old royal's visit, his contact with Meghan made him experience the "best day of his life" which he holds dear to his heart.

Okoye concluded by wishing the family well in all their future endeavors and admitted that he would love to meet him. He added,

"I hope to meet you one day. Good luck for the future, with kind regards. Aker."

50 years ago, women in Britain won the right to equal pay. That monumental moment began with one courageous and inspiring group of women in a factory in Dagenham, England. In 1968, facing a pay settlement that declared them less skilled than men, the sewing machinists of the Ford Motor Company walked out on strike. In the face of great pressure, they stood firm, and two years later the UK Parliament was forced to pass the Equal Pay Act, protecting and supporting working women ever since. To mark International Women’s Day, The Duchess of Sussex visited Dagenham to meet with Geraldine Dear, one of the strikers, and spend time with students at the Robert Clack Upper School to meet the town’s next generation of female role models, and talk to young women and men about the women who inspire them. • “Being in Dagenham is incredibly profound. Because as you can see with Geraldine and the other women who had the strength to really stand up for something that they knew needed to be done. This is the best example of no matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what colour you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice, and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.” - The Duchess of Sussex A lifetime advocate and campaigner for gender equity, The Duchess joined a special assembly to celebrate this remarkable local story, as well as recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of all women around the world. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2020 #EachForEqual Photo © The Duke and Duchess of Sussex / Chris Allerton

Apart from addressing the couple in his letter, he also shared with a news outlet his experience back at home with his family.

He opined that he kept the news a secret from his father until his face appeared on the screen with Meghan. His younger brother and friends are more than happy that Aker shared the stage with the "Suit" alum.

Upon her visit, the mother of one told the young listeners to speak up for a change when necessary no matter the hindrances, be it race or gender.

She also urged the young men to play the role of guardians and protectors of their women. The women surrounding them should be valued and appreciated, according to Meghan.

Both Meghan and Harry seem to be living their best days shuffling between the UK and Canada following their exit from the royal family. However, the pair are an inspiration to many, in deeds and words.
