Web Desk: Prince Harry made an embarrassing mistake when he first met Malala Yousafzai in 2014. While introducing Malala Prince Harry placed his arm around her for a photo, reported Dailymail.
Harry was speaking at the We Day assembly at the Wembley Arena when Craig Kielburger, the co-founder of the event, introduced the pair back stage.
While introducing Malala, Prince Harry placed his arm around her for a photo. But her mother shouted at him from the corner of the room to warn him that he could only touch the Nobel peace prize laureate if he married her.
Craig told the magazine: ‘Prince Harry put his arm around Malala for a photo and very loudly in the corner Malala’s mother in Urdu shouts “No, no no”, which translated to “Not unless you marry her can you touch her”.
‘The Prince was so red in his face at that moment and he was clasping his hands in the front, Malala was so embarrassed.’
They then successfully posed for a photo together – with Prince Harry firmly ensuring they weren’t touching.
Craig added: ‘Every young woman’s dream, and I don’t think the Prince had ever been told that he can’t put his arm around someone.’
