Hundreds of people braved the wet weather and lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the royal - including 12-year-old Ethan Toscan.

According to fellow ginger Ethan, the prince told him that being a redhead "has to be the number one thing one person can ever be".

He said that I was fabulous in making the sign and it's awesome to be a redhead.

I'm over the moon - it's just wow! I got to shake his hand."

However, the prince was less impressed with a teenage admirer who tried to snap a selfie with him - jokingly telling her: "Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you're young, but selfies are bad."
