12-Year Old Moroccan Prince Rebuffing Men Kissing His Hands Goes Viral (Video)
12-year-old Moulay Hassan, the crown prince of Morocco, has
become the subject of a video that has gone viral on the
internet. Hassan has completely rejected the customs of his
country, regarding men kissing the hands of royalty. It is a
tradition that has been done for some time now, but the
assertive royal is not a fan of it in any measure.
Hassan: if they kiss my hand
one more time!
video posted online of Hassan hilariously pulling his hand away
from grown men, one after another, for trying to kiss his hand
at official state ceremonies, has been collectively viewed
several hundred times. Hassan has the right to refuse men
finessing his hands. A simple handshake will suffice.
