Young Prince George of Britain seemed to be not fantasized by the charm of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he unnoticeable snubs his low-five.

Prince William, Kate Middleton, and kids George and Charlotte are spending a week in Canada as part of an official visit. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed the family during their landing in Canada on Saturday. The charming prime minister even squatted down to offer the 3-year-old prince Canada’s high-five variation, the low-five.

The toddler seemed to ignore Trudeau who then switched his palm for a high-five instead then started to offer a handshake both were also rebuffed by the little man. It seemed to be a pretty awkward moment on the airport tarmac in British Columbia.

Canadians are quite heartbroken with the prince snubbing their minister since they are accustomed to Trudeau winning over millions of fans worldwide with his undeniable charm. He was even said to have a social media star status for having a handsome face.

When Prince George met Barack Obama during his visit to England in April, he did shake hands with the US president even though the young prince was dressed in natty pajamas and a robe since it was bedtime already. So it was quite surprising he did not entertain the charming prime’s attempt to please him. Blame it on jet lag or some random toddler tantrums, as said in NDTV.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte are spending their first time in Canada. Their parents are now there for the second time with the first visit happened in 2011. The royal couple is in Canada for official business. And immediately visited the Immigration Services Society of British Columbia on Sunday to personally meet volunteers and staff who helps migrants. Since it is a weeklong visit, they are also scheduled to meet many young leaders of different businesses and industries in Canada, as reported by Reuters.

Before they leave for England on October 1, they expect more than 30 engagements with various Canadian industries. Prince William is now second in line to receive the throne after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth was given the position Canada’s head of state since 1952.
