This little concertgoer felt like princess thanks to one valiant prince.
Last Sunday, 5-year-old Isabelle Nixon was having trouble seeing the stage during the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games -- an international competition for wounded, injured and sick members of the armed forces -- in London, England. Lucky for little Isabelle, Prince Harry, who launched the games, noticed how upset she was and came to the rescue, lifting her onto his shoulders and dancing with her while the Foo Fighters performed on stage, according to Today.com.

"He approached us and smiled at me and just literally picked her up and just started to dance so she could see the stage," Isabelle's father, Adam, the captain of Britain's wheelchair basketball team, told the Daily Mail.
Isabelle was unaware she was dancing with the 30-year-old royal, until her mother, Taryn, told her, "You're dancing with Prince Harry," according to Today.com.
"When she realized who it was, she was lost for words. She just danced along to the Foo Fighters with him and hasn’t stopped smiling since," Adam said, according to the Daily Express.
Taryn told the outlet that the 5-year-old has since been exercising her bragging rights: "Isabelle now says she’s a princess and tells all her friends she danced with 'Uncle Harry.'"
