Glasgow - Four-year-old Shona Ritchie dressed up in a princess costume to meet her prince, but when she finally did, she mistook him for a frog and rejected his kiss.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were visiting Glasgow, Scotland on April 4. While interacting with the crowd at the Emirates Arena, Prince William met Shona dressed as a princess.
The little girl was wearing a green and gold princess outfit with a gold crown. She and her mother Karen Ritchie, 34, of Croftfoot, Glasgow had waited all morning to see the prince and ask for a royal kiss.
But when Prince William leaned forward and tried to plant a kiss on the little princess's forehead, she turned away and rejected the kiss.
Prince William looked embarrassed when the girl turned away to avoid his kiss. He said awkwardly, "Oh, no! You see! Aw. Next time, Shona. Next time."
Shona also refused to give the prince the flower she was holding. Prince William asked: "Is that for me? Is that for Kate? Yeah, you're going to give it for her."
UK's Express reports Shona's mother Karen Ritchie said: "She's been dressed up like that since 6am today and we've been here waiting since nine. But when she finally plucked up the courage to ask him, she got really shy and pulled away. As he leaned in to kiss her on the forehead she pulled away and got really shy. This is the quietest she's been all day."
The video captures the moment the little girl rejects Prince William's kiss. Laughing awkwardly, he moves down the line to other members of the public.
Shona gave Kate a better reception. With smiles on her face she presented the red flower to the Duchess
Her mother recalled the meeting with Kate: "She said Shona looked very pretty and asked her if she had picked the flower from her garden. But Shona told her she got it from my vase in the house and she thought that was very funny."
