As if we weren’t already head-over-heels for Prince Harry, the Prince of Wales just gave us another reason to scribble his name in our notebooks.
On Friday, the 31-year-old royal heartthrob came to a woman’s rescue after she fell from her wheelchair. According to reports, the incident occurred in Bath, England, during the trials for the Invictus Games — a Paralympic-style sporting event that will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, in May. The event was created by Prince Harry to raise awareness for wounded service members, ABC news reported.
Anna Pollock, a RAF medic attempting to earn a coveted spot on the UK team, told reporters that she fell moments after snapping a picture with the prince-turned-hero.
“I was just putting my gloves back on and sat back in my chair when the wind took me over,” the 33-year-old Middleborough native said, according to People magazine. “Harry said to me ‘What did you do that for?!’”
The athlete quipped back, stating she was showing the prince what “not to do” while trying out for the team. (Anna was competing in the 200 meter, 400 mete and 1,500 meter cycling event.)
“He was so lovely to help me and he gives so much. He makes all the lads and the lasses feel important,” Anna, who was left partially paralyzed after a spinal bleed, said.
But this isn’t the first time Prince Harry has come to someone’s rescue. While celebrating his 31st birthday in September, the British royal gave up his spot to fly a plane — previously used by the Royal air Force during World War 11 — so that Tom Neil, a 95-year-old “last living Royal Air Force ace,” could partake in the historic flight.

The official Twitter account for Kensington Palace later posted a picture of Prince Harry holding Neil’s hand as the Battle of Britain pilot sat in the PV202 aircraft. Swoon!
