The 12-year-old crown prince of Morocco, Moulay Hassan, is quite a character. Being royalty and all, he understands even at such a young age that there are several things expected of him and that he has to perform these royal duties. Now according to Moroccan tradition, one kisses the hand of royalty to honour and show respect, but Moulay is not too comfortable with that arrangement. In fact, the young prince despises that bit of tradition!
He seemed really uncomfortable when dignitaries who had come to greet him attempted to kiss his hand. Hassan extended his arm for a handshake only to pull away quickly in case any of them tried to plant a kiss. It made for some hilarious viewing. Check it out here:
