The WellChild Award's purpose is to celebrate children who are seriously ill yet show incredible character and remain brave in trying times. Those that dedicate their life and time to these children such as doctors and therapists are also recognized. WellChild is a national UK charity dedicated to providing care, comfort, support, and to seriously ill children and their families.

The Duke of Sussex has been involved with the charity since 2007. Last year was Meghan Markle's first appearance and she was there again this year.

Prince Harry acknowledged the emotion of the event and elaborated that he "squeezed Meghan's hand" thinking about what it would be like to be parents and, "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.” You can watch the Duke of Sussex's speech in its entirety below.

Your entire world changes when you have a child, your love grows immensely.
