Good God in Heaven, some little girl had a Cinderella moment with an actual prince and didn’t bat an eyelash.
Years from now, she’ll gather new friends in her freshman dorm room and trade cans of beer for tales from “Harry and My Wellie: (Almost) A Love Story.”
The Fug Girls found this friggin’ delightful video of Prince Harry in Lancashire, England, where he thanked soldiers for their efforts in aiding villagers affected by major flooding.

Reporters who covered the visit dubbed Harry “Prince Charming” for making the locals smile despite the damage done to their homes and businesses.
Before heading into the army barracks, Harry chatted with children from local nursery schools who had come out to welcome him.
Harry bent down and spoke to as many kids as he could, engaging in lively conversation and shaking hands with enamored fans.
The Daily Mirror‘s royal correspondent Victoria Murphy covered the visit, tweeting that the kids asked Harry pressing questions like, “How much money do you earn?” and “Why aren’t you wearing your crown?”
A mom brought her children in the hopes that Harry would take one (had my mother only done that 30-some odd years ago…)

Soldiers gave up spending Christmas with their families in order to make sure those who were affected were safe.
500 from the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment were deployed to the area in December to help residents battle terrible flooding.
This spring, Harry will visit Nepal “at the request of” Her Majesty’s government. This will be the prince’s first trip to the country.
