And the royals agreed with him.
Mckenzie’s mum said: “They were so lovely. They knew he(Mckenzie) was scared of the cameras and they said they didn’t like the cameras either so they turned around. They said he was amazing and to keep going the way he is going and told him to look after me. He’s never going to forget this, even though he’s only four.”
Winner Matilda gave Duchess Meghan a beautiful posy. Meghan then picked out a yellow rose and gave it back to the seven-year-old to keep.
According to Matilda, sweet Harry made her “pinky promise” to never stop smiling.
