A surprising bear hug

The couple attended an event in Syndey Harbor on Sunday and an American sailor was obviously very excited to meet the royals. He jumped off his boat and gave Harry a hug so big and tight that the Prince was lifted off the ground.

Meghan found the whole thing hilarious and could be heard laughing.

Now, that's a hug,

she said as she watched the whole thing from her sitting position. 

Then the sailor turned to greet Meghan and this was when Harry stepped in, very protective of his pregnant wife. He warned the sailor to be more gentle when hugging his wife and man replied that he was very aware. 

Of course, he knew it was not a good idea to give a pregnant woman that kind of exuberant bear hug. She received a gentler one from the sailor and it was just so precious to see how Prince Harry obviously had the safety of his wife in mind.

A short clip of this moment was shared on the Kensington Palace Twitter account. 

Fans are touched

The specialness of this interaction between the sailor and the couple was not lost on the royal fans. They posted comments underneath the video, sharing how touched they are about Harry's reaction. 

Is Meghan Markle taking a break?

It has been reported that the Duchess of Sussex may be cutting back on touring activities in the next couple of days. She has certainly been a trooper since their tour started on October 15 and for a pregnant woman, she sure deserves to get some rest from all the activities. 

We hope Meghan continues to have a healthy pregnancy.
