Prince Harry and Meghan Markle handed out tons of hugs during their royal tour of Southern Africa, and honestly, I'm really mad I didn't book my flight. Even though hugging goes against royal protocol, Meghan and Harry really seemed to be fine with letting their emotions take over and genuinely enjoyed their time in the continent that meant so much to Harry's late mother, Princess Diana.
In fact, during Harry's visit to Botswana, the royal explained that the reason Africa is so important to him is because it gave him a "sense of escapism" and "a real sense of purpose" after Diana died. "I came here in 1997, 1998 straight after my mom died, so it was a nice place to get away from it all," he said. "But now I feel deeply connected to this place and to Africa." Harry and Meghan's 10-day tour has come to an end, but their warm embraces made so many people smile. See their sweet interactions ahead!
