Prince Harry charmed a little girl right off her feet and she’s still smiling about it. When the royal red-head spotted 5-year-old Isabelle Nixon crying in a crowd because she couldn’t see the stage at a post-Invictus Games Foo Fighters concert, he quickly scooped her up and onto his shoulders so she could see the show. The Daily Mail reports that Prince Harry not only picked Isabelle up so she could see the stage, he ended up dancing with her all night, much to her parents’ delight.
According to the TODAY Show, little Isabelle was at the Invictus Games with her father, Adam Nixon, who was a captain for Team Great Britain’s wheelchair basketball team. A former Gunner in 26 Regiment Royal Artillery, Nixon was one of many people Prince Harry met after he spoke at the closing ceremony.

Hours before the Foo Fighters took to the stage, Harry chatted with Nixon, his wife and four children. The prince told Nixon, who lost a leg in an IED explosion in Iraq back in 2004, that he was a “legend” and posed for several photos with the family.
When the concert started, Harry made his way through the crowd and spotted Nixon’s 5-year-old daughter, Isabella, crying amidst crowds of people at the concert because she couldn’t see the band. The Daily Mail states that Harry swept the little girl off her feet and hoisted her up on his shoulders so she could see the show.
“He approached us and smiled at me and just literally picked her up and just started to dance so she could see the stage.”
Isabella got the royal treatment with not only a great view of the stage, but Harry ended up dancing with her high atop her shoulders all night. Isabella’s parents said that she didn’t even realize who she was dancing with until her mother, Taryn Nixon shouted, “You’re dancing with Prince Harry!’

According to her parents, Isabella now thinks she is a princess after dancing the night away at the Foo Fighters concert with charming Prince Harry. She calls her dance partner “Uncle Harry” and has been smiling ever since he scooped her up and stopped her from crying.
“She just danced along to the Foo Fighters with him and hasn’t stopped smiling since. He was the perfect gentleman and made everyone’s day, especially Isabelle’s.”
Isabella’s mom happily shared photos of her daughter on Twitter and tweeted out a thank you to Prince Harry for giving her family “an amazing end to an amazing week.”
