Tom Cruise is easily one of the most famous men on the planet, having been around for decades making hit movie after hit movie. He’s met thousands of celebrities and other notable names over the years but it’s always fun to see a dude as well-known as Cruise get a little starry-eyed when he meets someone. Specifically, someone royal. Tom was at Buckingham Palace this week, attending the 75th anniversary celebration for the Outward Bound Trust. He was greeted by Prince Philip and Tom looked overjoyed to meet him.

The Outward Bound Trust is “an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life.” And for someone who loves the outdoors as much as Cruise, it seemed like the perfect event to meet the Duke.
Just look at this hearty handshake between the two gents.
Also, it allowed him to gush. Not jump up on a couch gush, but gush nonetheless.
It was all Tom could do to contain his excitement and maintain his cool.
Tom looks so damn pleased. Aw.
Now, can you just imagine what Cruise would be like if he met The Queen?
