'Whose child is this?' - Prince Harry dumbfounded by stray toddler in Rotorua

Prince Harry has proven to be a natural at fatherhood after he helped a loose toddler reunite with his guardians in Rotorua on Wednesday afternoon.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were busy greeting crowds of adoring fans in Rotorua when Harry noticed a small child had somehow made its way onto the wrong side of the barricade.

Gently stopping the young boy before they became more lost he shouted to the crowd: "Whose child is this?"

He then ushered him back to his guardians, proving himself a natural father.

This isn't the first youngster to be lucky enough to be in the close presence of the royals; Meghan was seen pulling a young fan out of the crowd in Rotorua as well, embracing her in a hug.

On Tuesday, the Duchess did the same thing in Auckland whilst Harry petted a lucky dog that came along as a royal fan as well.

The newlywed royal couple finished their tour of New Zealand with a visit to the Redwoods Treewalk in Rotorua ahead of their flight home tomorrow.
