This little boy clearly wasn’t bothered by the royal couple he was about to meet

Not everyone is excited by the royal tour Down Under, if this little lad is anything to go by.

Just before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived at a function in Tonga, the boy was seen sprawled out and apparently asleep on the floor.

The hilarious pictures suggest he wasn’t quite as keen to see the couple as his peers, who were patiently lined up anticipating their appearance.

The children were lined up at the Fa’onelua Centre, where the Duke and Duchess met Princess Angelika and Prince Ata, King’s Tupou VI’s son and daughter.

On the third leg of their four country Commonwealth tour, Meghan and Harry were shown local products, including traditional mats and ‘tapa’ cloth, carvings, bracelets made from whale bone and wood.

They sat on two throne-like chairs in the centre of the room, while Princess Angelika, delivered her short address after prayer was read.

The princess said the royal couple were “an inspiration to the youth of the Commonwealth” for “shining a light on youth empowerment”.


And the princess added that their historic visit to the South Pacific to what Captain James Cook called “Friendly Islands” had inspired the youth in Tongan to be “the best they can be.”

She said the “historical highlight” in relations between Britain and Tonga had been the Queen’s visit to the island in 1953.

She went on, “Your visit today draws attention to the fundamentals of today’s youth, youth leadership, youth empowerment and addressing the social, economic and environmental challenges of our region.

“Your visits inspires and has been an inspiration for the youth of Tonga to be the best they can be.

“You are a beacon of hope to us all. Shining a light and being an inspiration to youth across the Commonwealth,” she said.
