His reaction was priceless.

Another royal wedding was (briefly) in the works yesterday—at least according to a six-year-old named Lottie.

On Tuesday, sportsman Prince Harry came out to support a Rugby Football Union event in Stockport, where he had the opportunity to connect with young fans in an effort to spread awareness about the benefits of sports, particularly for children.

But one young girl had more than rugby on her mind. As Prince Harry made his rounds offering high-fives to local kids, little Lottie made her intentions clear with a confident proposal, says People.

"I want to marry you," she said, voicing a reason we can all relate to. "I want to be a princess." 

The royal bachelor, ever the gentleman, had a charming and rational response: "You don't want that—there's too big an age gap," he said, adding, "You've been reading a lot of books." 

While we agree that a future marriage between the two isn't practical, we give major props to Lottie for knowing what she wanted and unapologetically going after it. Though a marriage may not be in the cards, we doubt she'll forget this royally adorable moment.
