Prince Harry opened up about being a parent to baby Archie and how meeting the WellChild kids and parents gave him a sense of "hope."
"And now talking to all of you as parent pulls at my heart strings, in a way I never could have understood, until I had a child of my own. No parent wants to hear that their child will suffer, that they will face extraordinary challenges - that will affect them throughout their lives," he said, before adding:
"After meeting all the WellChild kids and parents over the years you have managed to give us a sense of optimism, of hope and of strength that no professional, no best selling book or advice could ever give us - so thank you for being you."
According to wellchild.org, The WellChild 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."
Prince Harry - who became a Patron of WellChild in 2007 - also met with the young winners of each award category and their families.
Meghan and Harry also received gifts for their son Archie, including a baby grow and an emoji balloon.
The Daily Mail reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose WellChild as one of their four charities to benefit from the generous donations made by the public on the occasion of the birth of their son, Archie.
