For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first official duty (opens in new tab) as a married couple, the newly-minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended The Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration at Buckingham Palace.

And as with any job, the garden party came with a few workplace hazards for Prince Harry. While giving a sweet speech honoring his "Pa" and the work he done with various charities throughout the UK, Prince Harry was interrupted by a rogue bumblebee that flew too close to him.

“Sorry, that bee really got me,” the new Duke of Sussex said, warranting a laugh from the crowds and these reactions from his new wife (opens in new tab) and the Duchess of Cornwall, who clearly have become close in the months leading up to the royal wedding.

Prince Charles also had a laugh at his son's funny reaction to the bee. But seriously, how cute is this? Have you ever seen Prince Charles smile this big?

After the crowd had its laugh, Prince Harry recovered and continued his thoughtful speech.

“His enthusiasm and energy are truly infectious,” Prince Harry said about his dad. “It has certainly inspired William and I to get involved in issues we care passionately about and to do whatever we can to make a difference.”

“In fact, many of the issues William and I now work on are subjects we were introduced to by our father growing up. His passion and dedication are remarkable and seeing so many of you here today i cannot fail but to be in awe of the drive he has had for so many years to contribute to the enrichment of society both in this country and around the world.”

Good save, Harry, good save.
