Royal fans were sent in a frenzy after Prince William visited Dockhead Fire Station in Bermondsey, South London where he spoke with first responders, London mayor Sadiq Khan and fire survivors. But it was the Duke of Cambridge’s interaction with a little girl dressed as a princess which captured the hearts of supporters as Prince William began complimenting her on her sparkly shoes and called her “very pretty”. The two began chatting about brownies with Prince William revealing they were his favourite but told the little girl he could not eat loads because it would make him sick.
Prince Wiliam was joined by responders and parents during his visit to the fire station and shared a joke with many of them.
Later on in his visit, a young girl dressed as a princess came up to the prince who then told him she was six years old.
Prince William called her “very grown-up” and “very pretty” as he complimented her outfit and sparkly shoes.
The heir to the throne then told the little girl to compliment the cake makers on their cake and brownies and to jokingly tell them off if they were not cooked right.
