Harry turned a blind eye for a while then snatches the bag away playfully and offers young Emily a single kernel.
He continued to play with the toddler throughout the United Kingdom versus Danish men’s volleyball game they were watching, making faces at her and admiring her toys.
Harry, who made his first public appearance with girlfriend Meghan Markle at the games, has said he enjoys being an uncle to his brother’s two children, and said he “can’t wait for the day” to have children of his own someday, he told Good Morning America last year.
“I’ve got a kid inside of me. I want to keep that,” he said. “I adore kids. I enjoy everything that they bring to the party. They just say what they think.”
Little Emily was the daughter of Paralympian David Henson, a friend of the prince who lost both legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2011.
The Invictus Games, an international sporting event for sick and wounded servicemen and servicewomen, was started by Harry who was inspired by a trip to the Warrior Games in Colorado in 2013.
The first games took place in 2014 in London, and have been held in different places around the world each year since.
The word “invictus” means unconquerable in Latin.
“People find motivation and purpose in many different things,” Harry said in a press release. “But in my mind, there is no denying the impact that teamwork, competition and fun has on someone’s well-being and outlook.”
“I have long believed that individuals who wear the uniform are role models for society. Their families understand the true meaning of teamwork, respect, discipline, and leadership. And in a world where this is often lacking, I bet the values by which service families live their lives and the example they set for others through these Games, is having a profound effect on their communities and far beyond.”
