Prince William is visiting the victims of the Christchurch terrorist attack in New Zealand.
And during the Duke of Cambridge’s two-day trip he had a touching encounter with a younger survivor.
Five-year-old Alen Alsati, who was shot during the terror attack is recovering in the Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland.
She woke from a coma earlier this week.

A short video was posted to the Kensington Palace social media shows Prince William sitting on the edge of the little girl’s hospital bed and she asks if he has a daughter.
Prince William says, ''She’s called Charlotte…she’s about the same age as you.''
How sweet is that?
The Duke of Cambridge also met with the first responders to the terrorist attack and thanked them for their service.
William's first engagement of the tour was an Anzac Day service at the Auckland Museum where he greeted New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern with a traditional Maori greeting, by touching noses.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge stayed in London and will attend a service at Westminster Abbey.
His brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan also toured New Zealand in October 2018, when they announced that they were expecting their first child.
