Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Tried (and Failed) to Get a Koala’s Attention in Australia

How would you react if you ever came face to face with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? One koala was confronted with that exact situation when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited it during their royal tour of Australia on Tuesday (October 16).

But rather than ask the royal couple for a selfie or for clues about the name of their upcoming baby, the koala just hung out, looking deeply unimpressed. In fact, it couldn’t even be bothered to stop eating when Markle and Prince Harry came around, as seen in a video posted by Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English.
