The Duke of Cambridge was left rather embarrassed in Glasgow today as he attempted to greet a young admirer with a kiss, and take a flower she was holding, only to be roundly rejected on both fronts.
Four-year-old Shona Richie had been waiting all morning to ask the Prince for a kiss, but then "got really shy and pulled away" when he appeared, her mother told Sky News.
Prince William gave the youngster a good-humoured pat on the back instead. He told the shocked crowd: "It always happens, all the girls do that."
