Talk about royal dreams coming true!
Prince William and his brother Prince Harry really made one young lady's day on Sunday after a charity polo match at the Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire, England – and we've all got the pictures to prove it!
Armed with her camera phone, the eager fan approached the pair of princes, who rewarded her with big smiles.
The overjoyed girl reportedly let out a squeal of excitement after she snapped her pic and turned to her pal with a look of amazement, prompting an even bigger smile from a clearly amused Harry.

Queen Elizabeth had some cheery news to start her week: Her husband Prince Philip left the hospital Monday after an 11-day stay.
"He is in good spirits," a royal source says, noting the spring in the step of the Duke of Edinburgh, 92, as he left the clinic with a book under his arm. "He practically ran out of there."
He headed to Windsor Castle, where the Queen, 87, is based for a week of events, beginning with the Order of the Garter ceremony and then several days' horseracing at Royal Ascot.

The Duchess of Cambridge was pretty in pink as she helped fete Queen Elizabeth at her birthday parade in London Saturday.
The expectant royal rode an open-topped carriage and later joined three generations of the royal family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
On Kate's last official engagement before she heads off to prepare for life as a mother, she paired a pale pink coat from Alexander McQueen with an older, favorite headpiece – a Jane Corbett hat trimmed with lace that she had worn at a palace garden party last year.
Kate smiled and waved at the crowds as the carriage she shared with brother-in-law Prince Harry took them along the Mall to Horseguards Parade where the marching and drills took place.

Prince Philip is on the mend.
The 92-year-old royal is doing "much better," his son, Prince Charles, told reporters Friday. Philip, who spent his birthday in the hospital (when his wife, Queen Elizabeth, paid him a visit), was admitted for an exploratory operation on his abdomen, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
On Friday, his grandsons Prince William and Prince Harry visited in the hospital, following a visit by Charles and Camilla, who had arrived half an hour earlier.
Philip was admitted to the hospital on June 6 and was expected to stay for two weeks.

Queen Elizabeth paid a 35-minute visit to her husband Prince Philip in the hospital Monday evening to wish him happy 92nd birthday.
Dressed in a cream-colored outfit, the Queen, 87, arrived at a private hospital at just before 7 – four full days since he was first admitted.
Earlier in the day, Philip's youngest son, Prince Edward, 49, had been to see him. Asked how his father was, Edward told reporters, "[He's] well, thank you."
Philip, who is said to be "comfortable and in good spirits," underwent an exploratory operation on Friday and spent the weekend being cared for at the London Clinic.

It was business as usual for Queen Elizabeth on Friday.
With her husband Prince Philip, 91, in the hospital for an exploratory operation, the Queen, 87, continued with her planned visit to open the new BBC headquarters in London.
While observers might expect her to be with her husband of 65 years, for the Queen her work comes first.
"Everything comes second to duty, especially self. People don't understand that these days," says Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine. "It is always like that."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned to Westminster Abbey, the grand setting of their wedding, Tuesday as they helped celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's coronation.
Under the clear blue skies of early summer sunshine – Coronation Day June 2, 1953, was cloudy and gray – the 55-minute service brought the Royals together – including Prince Philip, 91, who was a welcome sight after he sat out a Monday evening engagement because he didn't feel well.
For the occasion, mom-to-be Kate wore a bespoke soft-peach silk jacket and dress (with silver grey ribbon detail) by Jenny Packham, with a Jane Taylor nude beaded cocktail hat with silk tulle, organza discs and smoked quartz detail (cost: $1,200) that she also wore at last year's Diamond Jubilee celebration on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

The Duchess of Cambridge received an appropriate memento of her trip to a London tube station Wednesday – a "Baby on board!" button.
"I'll make sure I wear this at home," Kate, laughing, said as she was handed the badge, emblazoned with the London Underground logo.
Wearing a Malene Birger coat and black beret, Kate was along for the ride with Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip. The visit helped mark the 150th anniversary celebrations of the subway network.

He's been with Queen Elizabeth – albeit at a pace or two behind – every step of the way since they wed November 20, 1947.
Now, as the couple marks their 65th anniversary, the gruff, no-nonsense personality of Prince Philip, 91, is being celebrated in a book of his many quips and verbal faux pas. Prince Philip: Wise Words and Golden Gaffes has been compiled by Phil Dampier and former royal correspondent Ashley Walton.
When it comes to the secret to his marriage, Prince Philip has had plenty to say. Here are five of his most memorable quotes from the book on matters of the heart – and the rest of the body:
