Everyone loves the royal family.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are simply the most charming and adorable couple.

Ever since everyone’s obsession with their union in marriage, people have kept the royal family on their radar, gushing over everything from their visitations around the world to Markle’s latest outfit.

Recently, the family has continued to warm hearts with the sweet story of little 5-year-old Luke Vincent.

According to Australian News, the little boy with Down syndrome somehow snuck past the security guards and went right up to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!

The couple was in Dubbo, Australia, on the second day of their 16-day tour at the time.

Prince Harry immediately knelt down and gave the boy a warm embrace, to which the boy responded with a warm smile.

The young boy was then incredibly intrigued by Prince Harry’s beard, reaching up to run his hands through it as the royal laughed and smiled up at the fascinated crowd.

Young Luke also hugged Meghan Markle, getting one-on-one time with both royals that day.

Ms. Van Dartel, Luke’s school principal, told the host of the Today Show, “Luke’s favorite person is Santa Claus … and now it’s Prince Harry,” she said.

“Luke waited beautifully today and waited for Prince Harry and Princess Meghan to come to us. And he even brought her flowers.”

Which he did. In fact, he handed them straight to Meghan Markle before he gave her his warm hug.

Not only is the couple being praised for handling this situation so well at a public event — with warm smiles and laughs — but Luke himself is melting hearts across the world for his sweet and genuine soul.

Clearly, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will make for wonderful, loving parents, and little Luke will cherish this moment for the rest of his life.
