Concerned Prince Harry helps lost boy find his parents during Rotorua walkabout

Words by Sarah Carty.

He’s set to become a father next year when his wife, Meghan Markle, gives birth to their first child.

And Prince Harry showed off his fatherly instincts in Rotorua yesterday, when he helped a lost little boy find his way back to his parents.

The 34-year-old Duke of Sussex was on a public walkabout with his 37-year-old wife, when a toddler suddenly appeared in front of the concerned prince.

In the video above, the confused prince can be seen looking down at the adorable boy before quickly guiding him back in the direction he came.

The happy toddler gladly went back in the right direction, while Prince Harry shouted ‘whose child is this?’ at the crowd.

The public walkabout came just after the royal couple had visited Rainbow Springs to learn about the centre’s kiwi breeding programme.

They met with conservationists working to protect the species, and even named two young kiwi chicks that have recently hatched there.

Meghan wore a bespoke Givenchy navy pleated skirt and completed her look with a pair of Manolo Blahnik BB pumps in a navy suede.

After meeting the public, Harry and Meghan made their way to Redwoods Tree Walk, a 700m-long walkway of suspension bridges between 117-year-old Redwood trees.

The newlyweds are set to make their way to the airport today to fly out and officially end their 16-day royal tour.
