A three-year-old boy couldn’t help himself and just had to touch the Duchess of Sussex’s hair during a public appearance on the second day of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal tour of Ireland.


While in the middle of the field at Croke Park, Markle and Prince Harry were interacting with the athletes surrounding them. Another athlete standing beside the Duchess was holding a toddler named Walter Cullen.

He seemed to have been entranced by Markle’s beauty since the little boy remained his gaze at her the entire time.

Later on, he reached over and held Markle’s hair without warning, as shown in the short clip below.

The newlyweds went to the Park as part of their second event, which was a meet-and-greet with the athletes under the Gaelic Athletic Association.

Before that, Prince Harry and Markle went to visit the president of Ireland, Michael Higgins at his official residence.


During the official meeting with Ireland’s leader, Markle had on a Roland Mouret dress and a bun.

Before they rushed to Croke Park, the Duchess changed into a more casual look with a black pantsuit, a white shirt underneath, and the same black heels by Sarah Flint. She also pulled her hair down into loose curls.

Prince Harry also wore two outfits that day. He first wore his original navy suit paired with a light blue tie and changed into a casual gray suit with a white button-down shirt.

Following their visit to Croke Park, they proceeded to the Trinity College in Dublin and had the chance to get a glimpse of the historic Book of Kells.
