“Last year, when my wife and I attended, we knew we were expecting our first child, and no one else did at the time, but we did, and I remember,” Harry said.

“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 recalled. (RELATED: Meghan Markle Wows In Pretty Green Dress During Event In London)

“And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.”

The awards celebrate “the inspirational qualities of the UK’s seriously ill children and young people, along with those who go that extra mile to make a difference to their lives.”
