Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who attended the WellChild Awards, made sure to make it a memorable evening for children suffering from serious health conditions, as they met and interacted with them. Prince Harry also shared some intimate moments with the audience as he delivered an impactful speech. He tearfully recalled how last year while attending the same function he and his wife knew they were expecting their first child. And that news was only known to Harry and Meghan.
He spoke about how at that time he and Meghan were thinking about what it would be like to be parents. And as his emotions got the best of him, Harry was seen tearing up. But soon paused, collected his thoughts and said, “Last year, when my wife and I attended, we knew we were expecting our first child — no one else did at the time, but we did — and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tight during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day.”
He further stated, “And more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of your pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.”
The event that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended helps seriously ill children return back home to their families.
