    Yesterday, Duchess Meghan Markle joined Prince Harry at the Poppy Factory’s Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, and had an extremely relatable makeup mishap while hugging veteran William Allen, who took part in the D-Day landings during World War II.

    The moment went down when Meghan leaned in to hug and kiss William, leaving a smudge of powder on his jacket when she pulled away. Something I think has happened to literally every single one of us. Except in my case I'm also leaving giant mascara stains and sometimes, if the person is lucky enough, some of my lipstick.

    And naturally, William didn't mind at all—and was in fact so excited about meeting the Duchess (and having her makeup smudged on his jacket) that he posed for a photo with it and said "I’m never washing that!" in reference to the smudge.

    Royal reported Rebecca English even shared a photo of the sweet moment on Twitter, writing "And here is D-Day veteran William Allen—a remarkable man who celebrates his 100th birthday next month. Meghan hugged and kissed him, leaving a little make-up smudge on his jacket. ‘I’m never washing that!’ he said."
