A cheeky well-wisher got herself a royal picture to remember – a “selfie” with Prince William.
And what was William’s surprising response? “You can’t beat a good selfie on Christmas Day.”
Young Madison told the BBC she had brought some flowers along with her, and when he passed she made her approach.
“Then he said, ‘Right, you can’t beat a good selfie on Christmas Day,’ ” she reports. “I didn’t really expect it. It was a really good experience.”
Back in the summer, even William’s 87-year-old granny, Queen Elizabeth, got in on the act of surprising a royal fan by posing with her at an event on the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
