Someone forgot to brush up on their royal protocol. During Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s visit to snowy Bristol on Friday, February 1st, they met with several local kids who attend a workshop as part of Bristol Old Vic’s outreach program. As the kids spoke to them about their experience at the historic theater, one bold boy seamlessly dropped the F-bomb in front of the royal couple. “When you’re on the stage, you can’t be like, you know, f— around on the stage,” the boy explained to the expectant parents, who took the off-the-cuff moment totally in stride.
In a video posted by the Instagram fan blog harry_meghan_updates, Meghan slightly raises her eyebrows and lets out a laugh as Harry sports a goofy grin and jokingly balances himself.
The couple, who are expecting their first child in late April, were pros with every kid they came into contact with during their day-long visit. Earlier in the day, they met with local children who were all bundled up in the snow waiting for the couple’s arrival. “Are you nice and warm in here?” Harry asked one of the kids as he admired their snowsuit.
Later in the visit, Harry cleared a room so he could have some one-on-one time with a boy who lost a parent, telling him, “The same thing happened to me.”
Earlier this week, Harry opened up about becoming a first-time dad in a moving speech as he met with young leaders from across the Commonwealth. “As someone who is about to become a father, I am acutely aware of our shared responsibility to make this world more resilient and its inhabitants more accountable for the next generation,” Harry said.
