Prince William swiftly came to Kate Middleton’s rescue when she appeared to trip on her way back to her car after a charity event.

The royal couple had just left the Troubadour White City Theater in west London, on Tuesday when Kate seemed to have slightly lost her footing.

Luckily, William held his hand out as quickly as a flash to prevent his wife from falling.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then smiled at each other before they got into their car, Mail Online reports.

William and Kate had met volunteers who gave up their time for crisis text support service Shout, which was launched by the couple and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May.

Since it went live, volunteers, who work from home, have had 145,000 conversations via text with people in crisis and exchanged 6 million messages.

During the visit they heard that 75% of people who contact Shout are under 25, and that the most frequent issues are suicide, depression, relationships, anxiety, isolation and self-harm.

Kate ditched her trademark dresses for the visit and instead wore a Smythe checked blazer with a smart pair of cropped burgundy trousers which were teamed with block-heeled shoes from Tod’s.
