See how Prince Harry responded to a six-year-old girl's marriage proposal

Prince Harry's charms are the great equalizer - it seems no one is immune to his charisma, whether young or old. So it's no wonder that the dashing royal received yet another marriage proposal when he appeared at an event that uses sports to combat social challenges in Manchester this week.

This time, it was six-year-old Lottie who fell under Harry's spell. She told him: "I want to marry you. I want to be a princess."

But before she could let her imagination run away with her, Harry responded: "You don't want that – that's too big an age gap. You've been reading too many books."

Meanwhile he had some words of encouragement for a fellow red head, Maisie Stokes. Harry commented: "You're nice, very pretty. Are you having fun?"

When Harry pointed out that Maisie's brother Kian, 11, had dark hair, unlike his sister, their mother revealed her daughter got the colour from her grandmother.

Harry played some rugby with the kids, and 15-year-old Destiny Wong later revealed she was surprised at how involved the royal got in the sports activity.

She said: "He's a really genuine and down to earth guy. We were taught some tricks. He said, 'You can do it. If I can do it, you can'. He was really encouraging. He came here to promote the sport and done a good job because the turnout's massive. You wouldn't think a Prince would be like this. He doesn't come across as a Prince. He's too genuine. He was really encouraging with all the girls here. I would definitely play rugby again."
