Prince Harry is not only a doting dad to son Archie, he’s also one supportive husband to wife Meghan.
On Tuesday night, for the second year in a row, Meghan and Harry together attended the WellChild Awards. While there. The couple met and chatted with 10-year-old Emmie Narayn-Nicholas, who won an award for her Emmie’s Kitchen initiative, and her mother, Eve.
“They were very lovely,” said Eve, according to Hello! magazine. “When she sat down I said, ‘Oh, you look amazing and you’ve just had a baby.’
[Harry] looked at her and went, ‘See, I told you!’ in a way that we would.”
The couple also spent time chatting to Milly Sutherland, 11, and her mother Angela. Meghan told them “she took him [Archie] to one of these baby classes today and she said they had loads of fun together. She said it was really good fun,” Angela said.
The mum and daughter asked the royal parents whether their son has red hair. Angela said: “Meghan said he has and Harry said he definitely is, you can see it in his eyebrows. “Harry said he’d had no hair for five months, but Meghan told him she had taken him to the playgroup and she said there were other children there with the same amount of hair or even less.”
Harry and Meghan attended the annual WellChild awards in London to pay tribute to the bravery of seriously ill children as well as their parents and carers who support and look after them.
And it was definitely an emotional night for everyone. While delivering a speech at the ceremony, Harry opened up about how this time last year, he and Meghan were secretly expecting their first child together.
“Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child – no one else did at the time, but we did…”
After a moment’s silence, Harry cleared his throat and continued: “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, and more so, 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.
“And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.”
