Schoolboy meets Prince Harry after two failed attempts and gifts $250 replica of tiara worn by Princess Diana
Along with the tiara, the little boy also brought along with him a miniature photograph of Diana wearing the original
It took one royal fan two failed attempts to finally be able to meet Prince Harry. Jordan Ilencik finally got lucky enough to be able to meet the Duke of Sussex when he was plucked from the crowd under the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Friday afternoon, reports the Daily Mail.
He had been trying to make his acquaintance with the royal couple all week, even going to the extent of catching a train into the city from Campbelltown in Sydney's southwest on his own.
And when he was finally able to meet Prince Harry on Friday, the 13-year old presented the royal with a $250 tiara replica once worn by Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana, which he bought with his own money that he had saved up. Along with the tiara, the little boy also brought along with him a miniature photograph of Diana wearing the original.
Jordan got the golden opportunity of meeting his royal idol when Prince Harry was walking down the Sydney Harbour Bridge along with Prime Minister Scott Morrison. His wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wasn't present for the climb because of her pregnancy.
"I just met Prince Harry and I told him that I love him so much," the little boy said with excitement in his voice after he managed to give Harry the tiara replica and get a picture clicked with him. "I gave him a replica of his mother's crown. He gave me a hug and he said 'thank you so much'. I loved it so much, he was very nice to me. I wanted him to know how much I love him."
Speaking about how he got the chance to meet his royal idol, the schoolboy said, "They picked me out and said 'come over here'. I thought I was in trouble. I said 'what did I do wrong? They said 'you're going to meet Prince Harry'."
When asked what he said to the Prince during their conversation, Jordan replied, "I just said I love him so much." He later added that he told the Prince how he loved his 'beautiful' wife Meghan in the television show 'Suits'.
Jordan's meeting with Prince Harry came after he missed meeting the couple on the Opera House forecourt on Tuesday, as well as the famous Bondi Beach, since the kid, unfortunately, slept in and missed the alarm. "I didn't actually get to meet them but she was two people away from me," he said as he waited at the bridge for his third chance.
