The 10-year-old son of a RAF serviceman presented Prince Harry with a bear as the Royal visited RAF Honington.
Sam Brown, whose father Flight Sergeant Jordan Brown has terminal brain cancer, presented the Prince with the RAF Regiment bear and flowers in front of hundreds of school children.
The Prince was visiting the Suffolk base to present a new Colour to the Regiment on behalf of the Queen.
The parade, which included the RAF Regiment Band, saw the old Colour Standard marched off before the new one was presented.
The Prince also presented the Firmin Sword of Peace to the RAF Police for their humanitarian efforts.
