Prince William to the rescue!

During a royal engagement with Kate Middleton in Harlow, England, on Friday, the Duke of Cambridge rushed over to help 72-year-old Vice Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Jonathan Douglas-Hughes, who took a scary tumble while welcoming the couple to Stewarts Academy.

William offered a helping hand, bringing the dignitary to his feet. Once upright, the Lord flashed a smile, letting onlookers know he was OK.

During the incident, Middleton, clad in a $2,150 powder blue Altuzarra Aimee polka dot button-front dress which featured a bold slit, stood nearby and watched as her husband performed the heroic move.

The Duke and Duchess were at the secondary school to discuss the importance of mental health in schools, and to promote the Heads Together campaign, which the royal couple established in May with the help of Prince Harry "to change the conversation on mental health from shame to support."

The official Twitter for Kensington Palace shared highlights from the day, writing, "Thanks @StewardsAcademy for such an incredibly warm (and loud) welcome, despite the rain @heads_together."

"The truth is, for many young people, the changing schools or starting a new academic year is really difficult to deal with," he wrote. "Catherine and I have young children who will be going through this themselves in a short period of time, and like all parents we will want to make sure that our children are not just able to achieve their academic potential at school but are also happy and emotionally supported."

"Talking can make us realise we are not alone," he added. "If we could end the old fashioned idea that feeling down is something to be ashamed of, something that you shouldn't burden others with, we would make our society a much happier and healthier place. By encouraging children to talk and to get support, we could stop these feelings developing into more serious problems that continue into adulthood."
