A video of Prince Harry ‘awkwardly’ hugging a hijabi has gone viral on Twitter.

The episode took place when Meghan Markle released her charity cookbook in partnership with the women of Al-Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre.

Prince Harry attended the launch event at Kensington Palace and met the coordinator of Hubb Community Kitchen, Zahira Ghaswala.

Zahira stepped back to avoid a hug from the Prince and ended up receiving three air-kisses instead.
