A heartwarming image that has been circulating on the internet is that of a seven-year-old girl Wafia Rehmani who had a tea party with Prince William and Kate Middleton in her toy tea set. Wafia who is from Afghanistan said that she wanted to become a doctor and also showed the royal couple her toy doctor set.
