If you dream to one day meet a member of the royal family and give them a hug, sorry to disappoint, but it's forbidden to touch the monarchy. The rule even extends to high-profile public figures. For example, Michelle Obama was severely criticized for putting her hand around the Queen for a photo once. Sometimes, however, royals are the ones that break this rule, and this time, it was Prince Harry.

Breaking the rules for a good reason

Prince Harry went against the royal protocol to hug his long-time fan India Brown during one of his last days of Australia tour. India shared the experience with Metro.co.uk., and it was one she will remember for the rest of her life.

The 19-year-old explained that she's been a fan of Prince Harry since she was a little girl:

He is someone I have looked up to for many many years. ‘Everything he stands for is amazing. I’ve loved that family since I was eight and I’ve followed them around the world.

India camped outside the Royal Botanical Gardens since 4 am hoping to at least catch a glimpse of the handsome Prince. In an effort to get noticed, she made a sign telling how long she's been waiting for him, and it worked.

Harry approached India, who was barely holding in her emotions and gave her a wonderful hug. The teenager revealed that the royal was aware he was breaking the rules, and jokingly whispered to her:

You are going to get me into trouble.

India was actually the one who initiated the hug, but kind-hearted Harry couldn't refuse, even though it wasn't exactly allowed:

It was just such an opportunity and I just went for it. I didn’t expect it to happen because it’s actually against protocol. He reciprocated the hug too. It was awesome.

This isn't the first time the Duke of Sussex breaks rules in Australia. Earlier this week, Harry reunited with his "favorite Aussie" Daphne Dunne, whom he always hugs. Our favorite royal just can't help making others happy with warm hugs!

He's not the only rule-breaker in the family

Members of the royal family sometimes have to go against royal protocol. Sometimes, situations just call for hugs or touching. Most of the young generation of royals are guilty of it, including Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Even though they're breaking the rules, they're also making someone's day a lot brighter.
