One of the drawbacks of taking a child to meet a royal is that they won’t care about protocol. And, indeed, one little mite named Walter Cullen made headlines when he grabbed Meghan Markle’s hair during an official visit to Ireland’s Croke Park. Here’s how the Duchess of Sussex and new husband Prince Harry responded to the inadvertent invasion of privacy.
Born in London in 1984 to Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Prince Harry trained as an officer at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst before serving as a Blues and Royals cornet and touring in Afghanistan with the Army Air Corps. In 2014 he founded the Invictus Games, and as of 2018 he is sixth in line to the British throne.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle was born in Los Angeles in 1981 and first began to make her name as an actress while a student at Northwestern University. Her big break came in 2011, however, when she began starring as Rachel Zane in the popular legal series Suits. The self-professed feminist has also campaigned for various social issues and charities, and she even launched her own apparel line in 2016.
