Prince Harry Respectfully Shakes Hands With a Service Dog While Celebrating World Mental Health Day


Prince Harry gives dogs the respect they deserve!

The 33-year-old royal met a service dog, Cooper, while celebrating World Mental Health Day on Tuesday, and the pics couldn't be more adorable.

Cooper, who helps his owner, former Marine Phil Eaglesham, with everyday tasks like opening doors and loading a washing machine, was greeted by Harry with a respectful handshake -- though he quickly gravitated to his owner.

Harry, William and Kate Middleton have spearheaded Heads Together, a group of several charities aimed at reducing the stigma of mental health issues. In his speech on Tuesday, William said it was Middleton who “first realized that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus. She had seen that at the core of adult issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood mental health issues were often part of the problem.”
