Meghan And Harry Make Friends And Balloon Animals At WellChild Awards
The pair celebrated some seriously brave kids, and made a balloon dog.
Meghan and Harry are fully back into the swing of royal life, attending their first of two evening events this week -- the WellChild Awards -- on Tuesday night UK time. Both of the Sussex folk suited up for the big event, too -- Meghan looked stylish in an Altuzarra trouser suit and Deitas black blouse, while hubby Harry rocked a blue suit and matching tie.
Harry has been a patron of the WellChild foundation since 2007, so this is a regular event for him but this was Meghan's first time at the ceremony, which recognises the bravery of seriously ill children and the medical professionals treating them.
The pair met with the winning children, all suffering from serious illness but helping and inspiring other young people. They are so amazing in fact, we're going to show you them all here. Be prepared, get a tissue ready. You'll be crying in no time.
Yes these kids are amazing. Don't know about you, but we're crying, already.
Harry chatted to Matilda Booth, 7, who suffers from spina bifida, and told her “to never hide that brilliant smile away”.
In his speech at the event, Harry paid tribute to everyone who helped care for the children.
He said: “Every one of you is truly amazing. You have shown all of us what it means to be a champion -- whether for yourself, your family, your community, or someone in need.
“The stories that we’ve all just heard -- of resilience, strength of spirit, and the power of working together -- were without doubt, incredibly moving and motivating.
They really sum up what WellChild is all about -- giving families the best chance to care for their children at home, and supporting them through the reality of all that that entails.”
And yes, you're not mad. It seems Prince Harry also made a balloon animal, which is an impressive skill to have.
No word as to the name of the dog he made -- perhaps he was making a model of his new dog, Oz.
