Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Bent Down to Let Blind Children Touch Their Faces
A sweet moment for the royal parents-to-be
Members of the public gathered in Hamilton Square during the couple’s visit to Birkenhead on Monday, hoping to catch a glimpse of Meghan and Harry. But some children who couldn’t see the royals got a special treat, according to Local Member of Parliament Frank Field.
“In the square, there were some blind children who wanted to touch the royal faces because they couldn’t see them,” Field said. “Both of them went down on their haunches so the children could touch their faces.”
Twitter user TraceyMarie also shared that her niece, who is blind, gave Meghan a card in Braille.
“Harry held on to her ensuring she was safe. Meghan went down on the floor to take a card she had made for her in Braille,” she captioned two photos of the sweet encounter on the social media site. “They’ll make great parents.”
The royal parents-to-be met a number of young fans during their public meet and greet, including a 7-year-old girl named Megan Dudley who suggested a baby name.
Dudley told reporters, “I asked her whether she would call her baby Amy if she has a girl, and she said, ‘That’s a really pretty name, I like it. We’ll have to think about it.’ ”
“The great thing about being royal is they don’t have to say anything,” said Field. “They just have to be here, but both of them were so lovely.”
