Prince William Rushes to the Aid of a Royal Rep -- What a Guy

kate middleton and prince william We already knew this royal was a catch, but now Prince William has gone out of his way to help a man who tripped and fell just as he was about to meet the Duke of Cambridge and his stunning wife, Princess Kate. Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex Jonathan Douglas-Hughes took an embarrassing tumble outside Stewards Academy, but Will was right there to help him to his feet, without a second's thought.


The royal couple was visiting the school as part of their work with the Heads Together campaign, aimed at removing the stigma of mental health issues. 

While they were there to discuss what educators and families can do to support children emotionally -- especially at the start of the new school year --  it turned out Prince William needed to give a little physical support to this 72-year-old. Fortunately, as a pilot in the ambulance corps, Will is well trained when it comes to these matters.

Kate had to be pretty impressed to see her guy rush into action to lend a helping hand. His mom, the late Princess Diana, would be so proud of how her son turned out.

As for Douglas-Hughes, who serves as the queen's representative in Essex -- he told People that he was "perfectly all right."

Once all were assured that he was fine, some joked that it may have been the sight of Kate's shapely legs that caused his tumble. The princess turned heads once again in a blue dress with a side slit that revealed her toned thigh and calves.

But it's also so refreshing to see that his first instinct is to help someone in need, without ever being asked. He's a true prince.
