Meghan Markle will not let a temporary scare prevent her from enjoying time with Prince Harry in Melbourne, Victoria.
While visiting the reception of the Government House for Young Victorian Leaders on Thursday, the royal couple were shown several sports demonstrations, including a Formula 1 project designed by the students.
Giving Meghan, 37, the royal honors of launching the F1 mini-cars mounted on a dining table, he pushed the button, but was surprised by the incredibly strong explosion that followed.
"I did not expect that!" He exclaimed of his rapid takeoff while laughing at his own reaction.
Meanwhile, Harry, 34, seemed as happy as a child in a toy store, smiling at cars and laughing at his wife's surprise reaction. "I was not expecting that," he teased. He even pumped them when they were first invited to try the cars.
The young people who demonstrated the award-winning miniature F1 cars, as reported by news.au.com, asked if Meghan would like to release them again, but she declined politely. Harry, on the other hand, was intrigued by his design and wanted to learn more about the cars, asking if they were printed in 3D.
"3D printing is being well used," he told them. "That is fantastic."

While the guys showed their car project, outside the girls showed their sports skills.
Meghan met with ambassadors from This girl can, which is an organization focused on encouraging women to play sports.
During the tour, Meghan demonstrated her athletic ability, throwing an AFL soccer ball and showing her best passing skills.
AFL, which meets the standards of the Australian football league, is the most popular game in Victoria, but is played all over Australia.
After the event, the royal couple, who announced on Monday that they are expecting their first child, visited Mission Australia Charcoal Lane social business restaurant on the third day of their Royal Down Under tour.
Inside the kitchen, the couple overheard executive chef Greg Hampton on how the restaurant provides guidance and opportunity to indigenous youth who need a new start in life. They were then invited to a cooking demonstration that showed native Australian food, where Meghan and Harry were able to taste some herbs.

The cooking event was right in the alley of the Duchess of Sussex!
Meghan organized her first lunch at the palace last month to launch a special cookbook that she helped create. She wrote the prologue for Together: Our community cookbook, Which presents recipes of a group of women whose community was affected by the fire of the Torre Grenfell in which more than 70 people died.
Accompanied by Prince Harry and his mother, Doria Ragland, Meghan helped make chapatis and make koftas on a grill under a large tent on the grounds of Kensington Palace. In a speech to the guests, she said that the project had been a "tremendous work of love".
