TORONTO — If there’s any wonder as to how good of an uncle Prince Harry could be to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, then this video is the proof you need.
When he notices Emily Henson’s little hands going from popcorn box to mouth, Harry jokingly removes temptation and then picks out the prime popcorn to give to the 2-year-old, the Telegraph reported.
He then chats with her and her mother and other neighboring spectators. He also made silly faces and stuck his tongue out at her as the cameras watched their every move.
At one point, Emily took such a shine to the prince that she leaned on his knee as the volleyball match continued.
Emily’s father, David Henson, is a paralympian who had both of his legs amputated when an IED exploded in Afghanistan in 2011, The Telegraph reported.
Since first competing in the Invictus Games in 2014, Henson has become a friend to Prince Harry.
Harry is no stranger to children, as he is the godfather to six of his friends’ children and believes he does a good job with them.
“I think the key to that is to be able to grow up, but also be able to stay in touch with your childhood side,” Harry told The Telegraph.
The games run until Saturday. There are 550 competitors from 17 countries taking part in 12 sports during the week-long event.

CARTEGENA, Colombia — A Capuchin monkey and a dog have made an unlikely pair in Colombia.
Now the two are the best of unusual friends, Sky News reported.
But their friendship may soon be forced to come to an end.
The monkey becomes upset when anyone gets near them, so the Environmental and Ecological Protection Police took the dog and monkey and could separate them, returning the monkey to the wild, the Independent reported. But there could be a hiccup to their plan. The Independent reported that the Capuchins in the wild may not welcome the monkey into their group.

ALBERTA, Canada — A couple in Canada can now start rebuilding their lives after they were big winners in the Atlantic Lottery.
Bill Pendergast and his wife accepted a $1 million check this month, nearly two years after their home and all their belongings were destroyed in a wildfire.
The May 2016 Fort McMurray wildfire destroyed their home, along with about 10 percent of the Alberta, Canada, town, the BBC reported.
Pendergast was recently visiting his sick father in Newfoundland, who ask him to get a soda at a store, the BBC reported. He bought a ticket at the local gas station on a whim. The next morning, he found out he was a new millionaire, CNN reported. He then called his wife, who hopped on a plane to Newfoundland to help her husband cash in on his newfound money, CNN reported.
The money, the couple said, will be used mostly to help put the pieces back together, including finishing construction on their new home, CBC reported.
“Our rebuild should be finished in the next two to four months, so this is going to go a long way towards that,” Pendergast told CBC.
The family, including the couple’s five sons, is also going to take a family vacation, CBC reported.
But there is one thing the lucky winner always wanted that will now become a reality.
“I have always wanted a Mustang, and I will finally have one, I’m 100% sure of that,” Pendergast told CNN.
