Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Pet a Pint-Sized Pony on Royal Visit to Scotland

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Edinburgh on Tuesday and were greeted by some very special guests—including one particularly adorable four-legged friend.

Upon arriving at Edinburgh Castle, the royal and his bride stopped to pet the mascot of The Royal Regiment of Scotland—a tiny Shetland pony named Cruachan IV. The little steed, who shares his name with an Irish folk metal band, made sure to wear his Scottish best to greet the couple. However, he wasn’t exactly on his best behavior. At one point, the horse attempted to bite Prince Harry’s hand.

“Hey!” the prince said pulling back his hand.

Cruachan wasn’t the only one there to greet the couple. Harry and Meghan also met with Pony Major Mark Wilkinson, as well as with members of the Band of the Royal Marines. Harry took over the role of Captain General of the Royal Marines from Prince Phillip in December. In addition, the couple said hello to a crowd of well-wishers.

While visiting the castle, the two witnessed the firing of the One O’clock Gun—a tradition that dates back to 1861 and was used to set maritime. Both Meghan and Harry made sure to bundle up for the occasion. Meghan wore a long navy and green plaid coat while Harry wore a gray coat over a navy sweater, white shirt and dark pants.
