The eldest of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children was reportedly on hand to comfort a bridesmaid when the pre-wedding nerves kicked in.
Given that all of Harry and Meghan’s bridesmaids and pageboys were under the age of ten, it is no surprise that stepping out in front of the world’s media was a little daunting.
Prince George has grown up with the world’s attention on him and has some experience on how to deal with the cameras. As big brother to Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, he also knows a thing or two about being supportive and caring. Who can forget the moment he put his arm around Charlotte as they went to visit newborn Louis?
According to a source that spoke to Harper’s Bazaar, two-year-old Zalie Warren began to tear-up while they were waiting for Meghan to arrive.

Prince George reportedly stepped in to comfort the little girl, and it clearly worked as when the bride arrived we saw no evidence of any nerves from the children!
The cute story was revealed by royal correspondents Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie the On Heir podcast. They said: ‘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.’
Even with his experience with all the media though, Prince George also looked a little overwhelmed on the steps of St George’s Chapel.
