Generally, handshakes are something one does after completing a business negotiation, or when meeting your mom's neighbor's niece's dentist at a hometown holiday party. But when Harper Beckham is involved, they take on a very new, very, very adorable shape.

During a charity soccer game this weekend that benefitted UNICEF, the only daughter of David and Victoria Beckham, met a bearded Prince Harry.

Though he only stuck around for a moment to say hello to the three Beckham children (big brothers Cruz and Romeo were also there), his final handshake with Harper managed to last a solid five seconds due to the fact that Harper is four years old and her version of "handshake" is waving her left arm around until someone — anyone! — latches on. Watch:

Possibly even cuter than the handshake, however, was Harper's series of theatric yawns before the game even started.

She truly is the least impressed baby of all time.
