Royal To The Rescue! Prince Harry Reunites Lost Boy To Parents During Royal Tour
November 5, 2018 16:37 By Mambee
It had been a hectic 16-day adventure with intense media coverage for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After going through 76 engagements during the royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand, the pair ended it on October 31st, but not before the Prince saved the day.
Losing a child can be soul-crushing, even if the kid has just been temporarily lost in the crowd.
That sort of anguish was probably felt by a couple who had gone out to see the royal couple, who went on a walkabout in New Zealand on the last day of their tour.
Thankfully, Prince Harry was alert enough to change that sad story waiting to happen.
As the Sussexes interacted with the crowd, Prince Harry was quick to notice a little boy who had managed to get through the railing barrier.
The boy was walking about when the Duke saw him and held on to him by the shoulders as he asked onlookers whose child he was. A few heartbeats later, the grateful parents rushed up and claimed their son.
This singular act has given an inkling of how much of a great father the prince will be.
You would recall that, a little over two weeks before, the couple had announced that they were expecting their first child sometime in spring next year.
However, this is not the first time we see how attentive or compassionate Prince Harry is. Earlier on in the tour, the 34-year-old was introduced to a 6-year old whose parent had died.
Having lost his mother, Princess Diana, when he was only 12, we bet he could relate as he was quick to comfort the little one and offer assurance.

Meghan is not lagging behind either. We all know about her family drama, but she does not miss a beat in expressing her warmth and kindness.
At the same meet-and-greet where the prince found the boy, his wife got her fair share of love from a 2-year-old girl that had also made through the railing. After a brief chat, the two ladies embraced.
With the royal tour now over, we hope the couple will get some rest and focus their energy on preparing for parenthood.
