Just when you thought Prince Harry couldn't get any cuter...

The redheaded royal showed he's still a kid at heart Friday when he gamely joined group of school children on the playground at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

London Mayor Boris Johnson tagged along, too, but after having gotten stuck on a zipline last year at Victoria Park, the zany politician decided to let the prince test out most of the playground equipment.

Harry, 29, made his way across a wobbly bridge, chatted with the children and even took a turn himself in an oversized swing. It was clear from the royal's smile and the laughter of the kids' around him that he has a way with kids—perhaps thanks in part to his role as an uncle to Prince George.

When asked if young Georgie would visit the park someday, Harry replied, per the BBC, "I'm sure he'll have his chance to come down here."

"You never know," quipped the royal, "the Olympics might be back here again before we know it!"

London's mayor jokingly piped in, "We'll put in for the Winter Games!"

We'll have to see about that. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will officially open to the public Saturday at 10 a.m., the first time since the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
