Prince Harry recently attended the WellChild awards in London and proved to the world that he really is the Prince of Hearts.
The fifth in line to the throne is the patron of WellChild, an English charity for seriously ill children and their families and was hilariously asked by one of the children if he was a clown whilst attending the event.
The Prince looked dapper in an immaculate blue suit, though that wasn’t what caught people’s eye at the event. His caring and playful nature won hearts at the event as he graciously accepted gifts that the children had made for him and chatted to each and every one of them.
In his speech the Prince was quite emotional saying:
“This is my eighth WellChild Awards now and every year, without fail, I am humbled by the people and children I meet. You guys are awesome. The stories we have heard tonight are moving beyond words. They remind us of the utter insignificance of our everyday worries.
Yet, one of the things that always stands out is the positivity shown by those in the most difficult and testing circumstances. It is heartening to hear so many stories of happiness and hope, even through the dark times.
And that is why we are all here this evening; to show our admiration for all the Award winners and to honour their strength of human spirit. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to recognise you all. ‘Sadly, many stories we have heard this evening highlight the challenges that many families all over the UK are confronting each day. The greatest challenge for families with seriously ill children is often ensuring they have access to the best possible care and support. It is easy to take it for granted that the necessary support is always available. But in many cases that would simply not be the case without WellChild, especially the incredible team of WellChild Children’s nurses who provide life-changing assistance for so many families.”
He finished his speech off with: “We literally have the bravest children in the UK in this room.”
The Prince’s caring an compassionate nature shines through and we adore seeing him out and about at events such as this one.
