Prince George showed he’s got what it takes to be a great leader when he stepped up to console a crying bridesmaid at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. The young prince, who was four at the time, was spotted trying to comfort the two-year-old Zalie Warren, who was feeling overwhelmed by the festivities.
Little Zalie is Prince Harry’s goddaughter and was the youngest of the bridesmaids at the 2018 wedding at St George’s Chapel. Once the bridesmaids had entered they needed to wait for Meghan to arrive but in the meantime Zalie started crying. That’s when George swooped in.
Royal correspondents Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie shared the anecdote on their podcast On Heir. Andrews said: “Poor Zalie Warren had a bit of a meltdown”.

Continuing: “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 .”
Following the mini-meltdown, Zalie rallied and managed to pose for wedding photos later in the day. The royal nanny Maria Borrallo has worked for the Cambridges since 2014 joining the family when Prince George was around eight months old.
Millions tuned in to see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry at Windsor Castle, with thousands lining the streets of the Berkshire town to join the celebrations. But just 18 months after exchanging their vows the Sussexes traveled to North America with their son Archie and have never permanently returned to their UK home.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – Prince William and Kate Middleton – are currently on a 15-day royal tour which will see them visit Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas to mark The Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee. The royal couple departed from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire this morning (March 19) on an RAF Voyager.
