Prince William Rushes To Help Dignitary After Big Fall

The Duke of Cambridge came to the aid of an elderly dignitary who took a tumble.

Prince William is certainly living up to his title.

On Friday, the Duke of Cambridge came to the rescue of an elderly dignitary who fell to the ground during a meet-up outside the Stewards Academy in Harlow, U.K.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were being greeted by Jonathan Douglas-Hughes, the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex, when he stumbled and fell.

While Kate looked on, William rushed to Douglas-Hughes' side and helped back back onto his feet. Fortunately, Douglas-Hughes wasn't hurt and was able to continue on as if nothing had happened, even escorting the royal couple around the school.

When asked how he was feeling, he replied, "I'm fine, thank you. The Duke was very concerned but I reassured him I was perfectly all right."

William and Kate were in Harlow to promote the Heads Together campaign, whose aim is to get rid of the stigmas around mental health.

Earlier this week, the Duke visited Caius House Youth Centre in London, where he proved that he's a pretty terrible dancer.

The royal couple will also be coming to Canada at the end of September. Will and Kate, along with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will be visiting British Columbia and the Yukon during the royal tour.
