Have you ever imagined what you would do if you were within arms length of Prince Harry? Would you keep your cool? Say something charming like, “It’s lovely to meet you” with a smile on your face, like a totally normal individual? Or would you lose your ever-loving mind, declare your undying love for His Royal Highness, and attempt to bury your face in his glorious ginger beard?
If it were me, I’d aim to do the first option but totally end up doing the second – and promptly be escorted away in shame.
But if I were 6-year-old Lottie, I would manage the perfect mixture of both. Because upon meeting Prince Harry yesterday at a sports event in Stockport, UK, the little girl very cooly and matter-of-factly proposed to the 31-year-old bachelor with a simple, “I want to marry you. I want to be a princess.”
Man, girl gets right to the point!
Prince Harry, ever the gentleman, managed to deflect her attentions and let her down gently saying, “You don’t want that — there’s too big an age gap. You’ve been reading a lot of books,” according to PEOPLE magazine.
And while that worked, Prince Harry proved he needs to beat the ladies off with a stick in Stockport because shortly thereafter little Maisie Stokes made her own move saying, “You’re nice, very pretty. Are you having fun?”
I mean, does it get any cuter?
The prince was in town to spread awareness about how sports can help kids tackle social issues and even participated in a quick game of touch rugby with the kids.
And the females weren’t the only ones Harry won over that day — the entire crowd seemed to be enchanted by everyone’s favorite royal.
Freestyle soccer champion Andrew Henderson was on-hand that day and said, “Prince Harry’s such a great guy. The fact that he can come here and interact with the kids and have fun — it’s so great to see the smile on the kids’ faces.”
I couldn’t agree more.
