Prince Harry maybe without his wife Meghan Markle in his first official visit to Japan, but there is no doubt she is always in his mind!
The Duke of Sussex arrived in Japan for the England-versus-Africa Rugby World Cup Final 2019, per reports from Buckingham Palace. However, what started as one of Harry's ordinary social calls, turned out a bit fun and different when a Japanese student called him "handsome".
The Royal Family Channel on Twitter luckily recorded the cute scene and shared it on the site. Prince Harry posed for a group photo with the students when suddenly, one schoolchild called him "handsome."
Sure enough, in a playful response, Prince Harry showed his ring finger with his wedding ring and said "I'm married." The Duke of Sussex then smiled warmly at the children before leaving the scene

Cheering On England for the Rugby World Cup
Later that day, Prince Harry met 2020 Paralympic hopefuls in Tokyo before the final game for the Rugby World Cup. He made his stay worthwhile by visiting the training facility of the paralympians.
Despite England's defeat against South Africa with the score of 32-12, Prince Harry enjoyed watching the game with Japan's Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Akishino who sat beside him.
The Duke of Sussex also grabbed the opportunity to see the Prince of Monaco, Albert II, and even spared his time to greet the players off-screen.
Moreover, Prince Harry shared a video of him hugging South African President Cyril Ramaphosa alongside the congratulatory message he dedicated for both teams from England and South Africa. He also added snaps from the game.
