UK:Prince William helps 72-year-old dignitary who takes a tumble during royal visit

The Duke of Cambridge came to the aid of the Queen's representative in Essex when he took a tumble during a royal visit.

William and others rushed to help Jonathan Douglas-Hughes, vice lord-lieutenant of Essex, when he appeared to slip on the wet pavement.

The 72-year-old, who was wearing his ceremonial uniform complete with sword, fell backwards as the Duke was introduced to local dignitaries.

The Duke and Duchess had just arrived at Stewards Academy in Harlow when the mishap happened.

As Mr Douglas-Hughes fell backwards, a gasp went up from around 30 well-wishers as he landed on his back.

As William and others helped him to his feet, the Duchess of Cambridge looked on in concern.

As the Duke of Cambridge, second in line to the throne, checked whether he was alright, Mr Douglas-Hughes turned to William and said "Sorry about that".

The Duke replied "No, it's all right".

William and Kate were visiting Stewards Academy in Harlow, Essex, where the royal couple are promoting their Heads Together campaign.

The academy is one of the schools supported by children's mental health charity Place2Be, a part of the Heads Together initiative.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
