Prince Harry shared a sweet moment with a young fan named Emma during his visit to Edinburgh with Meghan Markle last week.

Photos of Harry holding the hand the 4-year-old went viral on social media. But it is only now that the prince’s conversation with Emma is being shared by her grandmother, Rachel Hayes.

Hayes and her husband, Jim, of Kingston, were visiting their son Elijah Hixson’s family in Edinburgh. Hixson lives in Scotland with his wife Katie, and their two children, Emma and Haddon. While they were in Edinburgh, the family learned that Prince Harry and Markle will be meeting their fans at the Edinburgh Castle.

They decided to wait for the couple because they wanted Emma to see a real life prince. The young girl is obsessed with Disney princesses, particularly, Anna and Elsa from “Frozen.”

In the email that Hayes wrote for WBIR 10 News, she said that she told her granddaughter to extend her hand because Prince Harry might shake it. And that’s not the only thing that he did.

“He asked her if she had been to the castle before. She was a little star struck and didn’t answer, just smiled. He asked her name, to which she did reply, ‘Emma.’ He also chatted a bit about how long we had been waiting,” Hayes wrote.

Hayes’ photo smiling from ear to ear while looking at Prince Harry was also posted online via the Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account. Unfortunately, Emma and her family weren’t able to meet Markle during their trip to Edinburgh. But they had the chance to see up close.

Following their trip to Scotland, Prince Harry and Markle released a joint statement and said that they had a blast during their trip there. “This was Ms. Markle’s first visit to Scotland, and she is very much looking forward to returning many times again in the future,” the statement read.
