Prince Harry Gets a Marriage Proposal and a Big Kiss as he Leaves Australia

1 minute read

An Australian girl sought to make herself the newest member of the royal family by proposing to Prince Harry before he left Australia.

Victoria McRae even dressed the part: she wore a plastic crown, and made a big sign to get the Prince’s attention at the event at the Sydney Opera House, the BBC reports.

Harry didn’t accept the proposal outright, however. He told McRae he’d have to think about it. But she did manage to kiss him fully on the lips.

Later, Harry said, “I never expected that many people to turn out [at the Opera House] … I got more than one kiss.”
