Young Nikki explained to the royal that she shared George's 22 July birthday and that her dad was called George and her brother Alexander – one of the baby's middle names.
"Wow, very, very weird," Harry said. "I've just literally seen him. Normally when I see him he's either sleeping or crying but I've just seen him smile. It was the first time I've seen him smile."

The 28-year-old also took time to speak to little Jonathan He, who was dressed in a tuxedo and dickie bow. Jonathan, six, was the star of the show as he performed a song called I Dig My Garden for Harry, which made Harry raise a big smile.
At the end of the ceremony, Harry delivered a short speech, which he gave confidently and without notes.
He described the award winners as "unbelievably brave" and said: "I'm hugely humbled to be patron of WellChild and I count myself incredibly lucky to be patron, as well as coming down here this evening."
