Prince Moulay Hassan of Morocco

Prince Moulay Hassan of Morocco

*Tradition be gone!

That’s what 12-year-old  Prince Moulay Hassan of Morocco displayed as he tended to his royal obligations. Dressed oh-so-smart in a royal blue jacket and gray pants, with a burgundy necktie, the prince totally looked and walked the part.

What a handsome young man!

But there was one thing this young dignitary was not going to participate in: The tradition of allowing male dignitaries to kiss his hand.

In the hilarious video below that was first published in 2013, and garnered 2 million views on Youtube, we see the prince bowing and walking the line of dignitaries; who bow in return and attempt to kiss his hand.

Watch the video of this young prince’s dignified, yet no-nonsense style at EURThisNthat.
