Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in Dublin, Ireland for their royal visit and it seems like their trip got a little bit exciting when they visited Croke Park on Wednesday (July 11). Wearing a chic suit, the Duchess of Sussex let her hair down and one excited toddler seemed to be quite taken by her hair. While interacting with the crowd at the park, 3-year-old Walter Kieran could not resist touching Meghan's hair and playfully started pulling them. He also started touching Meghan's face and the Duchess of Sussex seemed only too happy to go along with the child's playfulness.

The two smiled as Meghan held his hand. However, it looked like the Duke of Sussex was up for some fun of his own as he gave the toddler a mock scolding by wagging his finger at him. This wasn't the only time when Harry and Meghan shared a cute moment with the kids. As reported by People, during their meeting,  Harry let a 4-year-old, Dylan Mahon tug at his red beard. 

The young lad reached for the royal’s facial hair and Harry let him have a go at it. Meanwhile, Meghan stood behind and stifled a laugh. Harry then told him, “You might have a beard soon — you never know!” The royal couple is sending us so many hints about how good they are with children. Remember when they sat down for their wedding portrait with the children of the royal family?

“They wanted to see their family and see the kids and be together,” Meghan’s longtime friend and makeup artist Daniel Martin told the magazine. “So when it was time to take a photo, it was really easy and harmonious and joyful, and Harry was playing with the kids.” While Meghan and Harry have not spoken a lot about when they would want to have kids, they have confessed that they would love to have a family of their own one day. 

"Of course,” Harry said during a BBC interview just after getting engaged. “You know, one step at a time. Hopefully,  we’ll start a family in the near future.” Meghan has also echoed a similar thought when the couple had a visit to Northern Ireland in March. The former 'Suits' actress opened up about their baby plans when speaking to the couple who own Shnuggle, a company which makes baby products. 

“I am sure at one point we will need the whole thing,” Meghan said while looking at some of the products. “It’s very sweet.” While having a child may not be on their mind now, Meghan and Harry are busy traveling the world for their official visits. As of now, the two have a long list of tasks ahead of them while they complete their tour in Ireland.
