Prince Harry had the most adorable response to a fan who called him handsome after the royal was seen in a photo alongside a group of local Japanese schoolchildren before Saturday's Rugby World Cup final. The prince traveled to Japan to cheer on England in the sports event, as People Magazine reported.
Harry nonverbally replied to the fan by pointing to his wedding ring, subtly reminding the admirer that he is married.
The prince's wife, Meghan Markle, did not make the journey to Japan with him. She remained home at the couple's Frogmore Cottage home with their 6-month-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.
Harry also joked with a group of Japanese Paralympic hopefuls, after one of the athletes revealed that he wanted South Africa to win against England, Prince Harry's home country. Harry quipped, "I'll have a word later. You might not be getting selected."
The athletes to whom the prince was speaking had participated in training sessions in several athletic competitions.
Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games just five years ago as a way to use the power of sports to help wounded veterans with physical or mental injuries achieve their greatest personal goals.The Sussex's official Instagram account posted the photo of the prince alongside the schoolchildren right after the comment about the royal's looks has been made.

"Well done Prince Harry for how far the Invictus games have come and all the achievements... couldn't be more proud of you and Meghan," said another admirer of the royal couple.
Yet another follower remarked, "Hellooo Invictus games! Proud of you Prince Harry for this huge accomplishment."

It was during this trip that the couple were captured on film peeling back the curtain on the secrecy of royal life in the documentary, Harry and Meghan: An African Journey. The Inquisitr reported that both Prince Harry and Meghan were quite frank regarding their depiction of royal life as the cameras rolled and the couple was questioned by reporter Tom Bradby.
