With all of the hullabaloo surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Merkle's wedding, it makes sense people all over the world are flocking to England to show their love. Some fans bring flowers, others bring chocolates, but one 19-year-old decided to do something a little different.
After weeks of putting pencil to paper, Chloe Mullins was ready to deliver her present. Chloe planned the hand-off for days - and she finally found the perfect time and place to give the handsome royal couple their gift.
She had no idea that Meghan and Harry would have such a strong reaction...
On their first official tour outside of the United Kingdom, Harry and Meghan took a quick jaunt over to Ireland to walk the streets and meet their admirers. That's when Harry spotted Chloe hanging off the guard rails waving something strange at him.
Harry beelined to Chloe with Meghan in tow. What in the world was she trying to give them?
As the royal couple got closer, the image Chloe drew on the paper became clearer. It was a stunningly accurate drawing of one of their official engagement photos! Their genuine shock and delight was hard to keep tamped down.
Harry looked at Chloe with excitement twinkling in his eyes and exclaimed:
"That's very, very good. Did you draw that? It's lovely...
And you've given me more hair!"
Upon hearing this, Meghan let out a loud giggle of her own! She was equally impressed with Chloe's work and wanted to show it.
Meghan leaned over to Chloe and told her the image looked just like the original photo. This was one of the biggest compliments Meghan could ever pay an artist like Chloe - but the surprises didn't stop there!
Harry took another look at Chloe's work and asked her politely if he could bring it home.
Chloe's breath pulled from her lungs. Could this be real life?! Of course, Chloe would allow the royal couple to take her drawing home.
With her heart pounding, Chloe took to Instagram to share the thrilling news.
"Ya girl's artwork going to Kensington Palace! Delighted to have gotten to talk to them and have them keep my drawing! They're genuinely so nice...
Still not over meeting them... couldn't ask for a better compliment than Meghan saying my drawing 'looked like a photo' and was 'so special.' Great day!"
Meghan and Harry didn't have to stop and engage with Chloe, but doing so left a lasting impact on the young artist. She'll never forget the time one of her drawings was plucked from her hands by royalty and placed in their home!
