Prince William has helped to stop British actor Will Mellor from engaging in a physical altercation with a man while visiting an exclusive London bar.

Mellor made the revelation during an interview with TV hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby of the program “This Morning” on Tuesday, June 7. The actor recounted meeting the Duke of Cambridge when he sneaked into a “posh party” held at an exclusive bar several years ago, Hello magazine reported. He mentioned that he "ended up chatting" with the royal prince at the said party.

The “Hollyoaks” star also shared that he had a knee injury at that time and needed crutches to go around. He recalled an incident with a party guest whom he almost fought with. Mellor explained that he already consumed a few drinks when a man knocked him off his crutches. “This idiot just barges me off my crutches and finds it hilarious… and I lost my temper, got into a scuffle with this guy," the actor stated.

The person, who helped to stop Mellor from engaging in a bar fight with the said man, was Prince William. The British actor revealed that the Duke of Cambridge helped to pull him up from the floor and told him that fighting with the man was “not worth it.”

Mellor even commented that the incident was a memorable one for him. “I'll never forget the future King of England having his hands on my shoulders saying 'Will, he's not worth it' and I'm going, 'he knocked me off my crutches'…,” he said.

Meanwhile, Prince William has shared a rare moment with his wife Kate Middleton and two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The royal family recently enjoyed a family picnic during the Houghton International Horse Trials held in Norfolk near the royal couple's Anmer Hall home. The Duke of Cambridge was even spotted eating cake from a paper plate.

The royal family was also seen sitting on the grass to enjoy the equestrian show. Prince George also displayed a few of his silly faces while standing beside his mother Kate. The royal toddler reportedly even played with his sister Princess Charlotte during the event.
