So it was no surprise that Prince Harry attended the UK vs Denmark volleyball match during the latest Games. It’s no surprise either that he sat in the stands with the regular folk. That’s because, like his late mother Diana, Harry’s a modern and down-to-earth kind of royal. He sat next to a little blonde girl and her mother.
But the little girl didn’t care one bit about who she was sitting next to. She was only interested in the popcorn that the man had brought with him. As Prince Harry concentrated on the volleyball game, then, the toddler reached out a hand and stole some of his snacks. And then she did so again… and again after that.
She helped herself to his popcorn for almost a whole minute, in fact. Harry was deep in conversation with the person on his other side and didn’t notice. But eventually, the little girl’s mother did. For a second her face looked a bit concerned, as if she was trying to work out if it was still technically treason to steal something from a member of the royal family.
