Old Lady didnt Think Prince Harry Would Recognize Her, But His Face When He Sees Her Says It All
When people learn that the prince is coming to town, some of them go to great extremes to see him in person. The lucky ones may get to shake his hand or receive a kiss on the cheek.
One woman spent seven hours waiting in the rain so she could meet one of her favorite members of the royalty. She first met him two years earlier and hoped he would remember her.
The prince slowly maneuvered himself through the crowd to greet people when he spotted Daphne. She had nothing to fear because he recognized her right away. He immediately reached out to her.
Daphne Dunne, a 97-year-old widow, first met the prince when he was working with the Australian Defense Force and stopped at the Sydney Opera House. He picked Daphne out of the crowd because she was wearing numerous military medals. One in particular, the Victoria Cross, stood out.
Daphne is a veteran of the Australian Women’s Army service. She explained to the prince how her first husband, who died at the age of 24 during World War II, was awarded the Victoria Cross posthumously. They had only been married for one year when he passed away.
The prince spent a few moments chatting with Daphne and giving her a big hug.
