It seems like Prince Harry made a new friend at the Invictus Volleyball Game. However, it appeared that young Emily was more interested in the Prince’s popcorn than his company. On Thursday night Prince Harry was seated next to former Invictus athlete David Henson, his wife, Haley Henson and their two-year-old toddler Emily Henson for the UK-Denmark volleyball match in Toronto.
Toddler, Emily continuously stole the Royal Prince’s snack while he was engaged in a conversation with the man sitting next to him.
Without even the slightest respect for the Prince’s appearance, Emily presumptuously nibbled on to the Prince’s popcorn. Stealing bits and pieces here and there before Prince Harry caught her in the act.
However, Harry’s response to the young girl stealing his popcorn was unlike anything and made our hearts melt. The Royal Prince hilariously played along with the toddler, making faces, joking around and sharing his snack. The Prince previously stated how he wishes to be a dad and hopefully will be a great dad.
In response to the Prince’s goofy faces, Emily kindly responded by sticking out her tongue before leaning on his knee to watch the volleyball match.
Emily’s dad, David Henson is a former royal engineer who got both of his legs blown away by an IED in Afghanistan in 2011.
