Prince William is so supportive!
The 34-year-old and wife Kate Middleton visited a school north of London on Friday to speak on the importance of children being “emotionally supported” in the education system.
However, when he arrived at Stewards Academy, the Prince actually had to give some physical support to a local dignitary who accidentally tripped and fell over while welcoming the royals!
After Jonathan Douglas-Hughes, Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex, took a tumble, William rushed to his aid and helped the man back on his feet — all while Kate stood to the side, presumably lending her emotional support.
Douglas-Hughes, who serves as the Queen’s hand in Essex, told People following the spill:
“I’m fine, thank you. The duke was very concerned but I reassured him I was perfectly all right.”
Will and Kate later spoke on how educators and parents can aid children through difficult times in school, especially at the beginning of a new academic career.
Of course, it’s always great to know that if his children ever fall down — figuratively or literally — the prince will help them right back up!
