Prince Harry Hands Out Hugs and High Fives to a Group of Excited Students

It's always a delight when Prince Harry steps out for a royal engagement, but his latest visit to Luton's Lealands High School on Thursday was genuinely adorable. While Meghan Markle was busy launching her first-ever fashion collection with Smart Works, the Duke of Sussex visited students from the Rugby Football Union All Schools program. The initiative encourages kids to stay active by playing rugby, and the 34-year-old royal looked so happy to be there as he handed out hugs and high fives to a group of excited students.

Even though hugging technically goes against royal protocol, Harry previously told journalist Angela Levin that he's an excellent hugger. "Everyone needs a hug now and again, and it just so happens that I'm very good with hugs," he said.

Both Harry and Meghan were glowing during their Thursday outings, and I'm wondering if it may have something to do with their upcoming tour of South Africa. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will kick off their trip with baby Archie in Cape Town on Sept. 23, and it'll include stops in Johannesburg, Botswana, Angola, and Malawi. Who else is excited?
