Prince George really stepped up to the plate on the day of the royal wedding, going beyond his duties as a royal page boy to deal with a crisis outside the chapel.

In an episode of their royals-focused podcast, On Heir, Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie have shared a heartwarming story of how the little prince comforted one of the bridesmaids ahead of the ceremony.

'Poor Zalie Warren had a bit of a meltdown,' Andrews said. 'She's only two. She started crying when they were waiting for Meghan. It was only a couple of minutes.

'So Nanny Maria Borrallo kind of looked after her, and George apparently was trying to comfort her as well, which is very sweet.'

Bless him!

George and Charlotte's nanny, Maria Teresa Turion Borrallo, was on hand on the day to help manage the 10 bridesmaids and page boys, who all posed for official photographs after the ceremony.

Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte also took on a more organisational role when it came to herding up the bridesmaids.

'There was one [bridesmaid] who wanted to go and she said, "no, you can't go yet, we have to wait until we are asked,"' one wedding guest told People. 'She was very organised!'

Looks like George and Charlotte have been taught well when it comes to handling public appearances.
