Prince Harry and Melania Trump met in-person and shook hands Saturday ahead of the Opening Ceremony for the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada. The Invictus Games, which were created by Harry for wounded, injured, and sick members of the armed services, are in their third year.

It was probably the least awkward instance of a Trump shaking hands with a foreign diplomat ever. That's not to say it wasn't awkward—it was—it was just less awkward than it conceivably could have been. So there's that.
