Prince Harry met his miniature doppelganger who twinned in a navy suit

The twinning pair had a sweet exchange, with Harry showing he's always had a knack of talking to children.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's uncle helped empathise with fellow guests during Thursday's solemn engagement. Harry was attending the Met's annual Police Memorial service where he met families of some of the fallen officers. He was joined by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.

The Prince laid a wreath during the ceremony at the Met's training college in Hendon, and also planted a cherry tree in the garden to mark his visit.

The royal has always had a knack of talking to children

He spoke to retired chief superintendent Sid MacKay, who lost his daughter PC Nina MacKay, 25, when she was stabbed to death in October 1997 while trying to place a man under arrest.

"I spoke to Prince Harry and I found him to be caring and interested, he had a sense of compassion and understanding," said Mr MacKay.

"Unless you've actually lost someone though, it's very difficult to convey properly how that person feels. You never expect having to bury your child. And 19 years on, you wonder where would [Nina] be if she had still been alive. Would I have grandchildren?"

"These events are a great comfort and the new memorial is an oasis of calm," he added.

PC Ivan Dunne, whose brother PC Patrick Dunne was killed on duty 23 years ago to the day, agreed, saying: "Being able to share this with other bereaved families really helps. These memorials mean so much to the families, and it's good to see it means so much to the police."

The service was also held on the 100th anniversary of the death of Set Serg Matthew McLoughlin, the only royal personal protection officer to be killed on duty. He worked for Edward VII and George V, and was killed while acting as police bodyguard to Lord Kitchener at general headquarters in France in 1916.
