Prince Harry truly the people's prince! On a public walkabout in New Zealand, the Duke of Sussex met a young boy whose mother had recently died. Not only did Harry talk to six-year-old Otia Nante for several minutes, he also offered him some advice...

Prince Harry (34) is on his first official royal tour with Duchess Meghan (37). The couple have now landed in New Zealand and the Duke of Sussex has once again warmed hearts everywhere! Harry, who just days ago had a truly emotional exchange with war veteran Paul Guest at the Invictus Games, has now given hope to yet another royal fan. According to Australia's Daily Telegraph, he met six-year-old Otia Nante, when on a public walkabout. Otia's mother recently passed away, but Harry was able to offer some words of support and also advice, reassuring Otia that, "Everything will be okay - look at me."

The importance of grandmothers

He also spoke to Otia's grandmother Te Nante (52), applauding her efforts for looking after Otia during such a tragic time and offering the kind words, "You’re doing a great job, Nan"! He went on to state that "Nans are so important in our lives". It is, of course, no surprise that Prince Harry is so in favour of the restorative powers of a grandmother's love, seeing that he his grandmother, the Queen, played such a vital role in his life after the death of Princess Diana.
