On Thursday morning, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made an appearance at the Field of Remembrance service at Westminster Abbey, and took time to greet some well-wishers who had come out for the chance to see their favorite royals.
One fan in particular, 99-year-old D-Day veteran William Allen, was awarded a sweet interaction. Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English tweeted that Allen met the Duchess of Sussex, who hugged and kissed him, and even left a small make-up smudge on his jacket.
"I'm never washing that!" he told English.

Thursday's event was the first time Meghan joined Harry at the Field of Remembrance; he has attended the services on a solo basis in the past two years.
