The schoolgirl who hugged Meghan

Harry and Meghan visited in Birmingham in March to encourage young women to pursue careers in STEM subjects.

While at Millenium Point, Harry pulled out 10-year-old Sophia Richards from the crowd after she said she wanted to be an actress.

The pupil, from Oasis Academy in Worcester, was then hugged by Ms Markle.

On ITV tonight (13 December) a documentary will mark the Duchess of Sussex's first 6 months since she joined the House of Windsor.

Sophia has been speaking to ITV News Central about the time Meghan hugged her - which is actually a break of royal protocol.
