Prince George has a knack for turning down high fives, but no one’s holding it against the lad because he does it adorably so.
Just days after turning down Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s royal high five offer, Prince George is at it again. This time, the person he left hanging is the 9-year-old Daniel Brachman, who represents the organization Power to Be.
As shown in the GIF below, Brachman approached George to offer him a high five. When Prince George refused, Daniel offered a handshake instead, as previously reported by Mirror. The little prince, however, turned his back on him to avoid any other incoming courtesy gestures.
Brachman appeared to take the royal snub graciously as he continued smiling, and then proceeding to shake Prince William and Kate Middleton’s hands.

“I was really excited to meet them, I wish that I asked them something but it was still really exciting,” Brachman said afterwards.

Daniel doesn’t seem disappointed that George turned down his greeting. After all, the Prince is only 3-years-old.
“I tried to high five him but he didn’t want to,” he said.
Prince William and Kate Middleston just wrapped up their week-long trip of Canada with the royal couple praising the country for the “happy memories” they created during their stay.

The royal couple and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, arrived at the airport to head back to their home in England, as reported by E! News.
George and Charlotte were adorably dressed for the occasion. George held his father’s hand while wearing red shorts and a blue sweater over a collared shirt. Charlotte was carried by mom Kate while wearing red shoes and a red jacket over a black and white polka-dot dress.
While it’s true that George has a particular distaste for high fives, he didn’t have any qualms in waving to the crowd as he and the royal family said their goodbyes.
The 17-month-old princess gave a wave for the crowd as well as she stood on a jetty with Prince William and Kate and turned to wave at British Columbia premiere Christy Clark.
“Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week,” Prince William said in a statement. “We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person.”
“We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit,” William added.
“Canada is a country of optimism, generosity and unrivaled natural beauty. I hope we have helped all Canadians celebrate what makes this country great. We will see you again soon.”
Thousands of Canadians went to the harbor of Victoria to see Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children off.
The family’s tour of eastern Canada had them taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of the Hadai Gwaii archipelago and the Yukon gold rush town of Whitehorse.
As always, George and Charlotte captured everyone’s hearts yet again as an outdoor children’s party was staged by Prince William and Kate in Victoria in their honor. The highlight of the tour, at least as far as the children are concerned, was when they participated in a petting zoo set up for kids. A lot of fun was had by all, especially George and Charlotte, as balloons and lots of bubbles were thrown into the mix.
Before saying their goodbyes, William and Kate were gifted with customized Vancouver Canucks jerseys for their children while attending a charity event.
