This toddler stole the show during Meghan and Harry's visit to Croke Park today

A sweet moment during today's visit to Croker.

Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, have been making the most of their 24 hours in Ireland and taking in Áras an Uachtaráin, Trinity College and Croke Park today.

However, while all day they’d been the centre of attention, during their visit to Croke Park, the pair had the limelight stolen momentarily by three-year-old Walter Cullen.

The toddler was in attendance with his dad, wearing his local team’s colours with pride to meet the royal couple.

However, the cheeky youngster was obviously very curious about the new Duchess and went against royal etiquette when he reached out to touch her hair.

The adorable photos show Meghan taking the encounter in her stride grabbing the toddler’s hand and laughing with him.

However, Prince Harry wasn’t best pleased, jokingly telling the little lad off by wagging his finger.

The innocent moment was captured by Irish media and the pictures make for some seriously adorable viewing.

Harry and Meghan are finishing up their short-lived visit to Ireland this evening.
