‘I hope you didn’t mind me cuddling your wife’: Schoolboy, 16, writes letter to Prince Harry to say sorry for breaking Royal protocol by hugging Meghan Markle but insists he was just ‘overwhelmed and shocked’ to see the Duchess at his school

The schoolboy who hugged Meghan Markle and told her she was ‘really beautiful’ has apologised to Prince Harry for the protocol-breaking cuddle.

Head boy Aker Okoye received a rapturous applause when he bounded on stage to embrace the Duchess of Sussex during her visit to his east London school on Friday.

The cheeky 16-year-old has now penned a light-hearted apology to Prince Harry after admitting he was ‘overwhelmed and shocked’ to see the Duchess.

Meghan was visiting Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham to give a talk for International Women’s Day in what was her final solo engagement as a working member of the Royal Family.

But it was the star-struck Aker who stole the spotlight when he leaned in to give the Duchess a kiss – much to the amusement of his classmates.

He then excitedly boomed into the microphone: ‘She really is beautiful innit?’

The teenager has now revealed that it was ‘the best day of my life so far’ and insisted Meghan found his overzealous approach ‘funny’.

However he did feel compelled to apologise to Prince Harry in a hand-written letter, reported by mogonews
