Prince Harry, 36, who recently flew home to the UK, attended the WellChild Awards yesterday at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. WellChild is a charity that helps critically ill children and youth in the United Kingdom. The Duke of Sussex has been her patron since 2007.
Before the meeting with the winners, Harry talked to singer Ed Sheeran, who also became a special guest of the ceremony. Young fathers (Sheeran first became a father last year) talked about children. The artist congratulated the Duke on the birth of his daughter and asked him what it was like to raise two children.
“Two children is like juggling”, Harry pointed out.
In a conversation with another guest of the award, he spoke about the character of his daughter. Apparently, while baby Lilibet does not give them trouble with Megan.
“While we are lucky. She is very calm and just looks happy while Archie is running around like crazy”, Harry added.
And one of the wards of the organization said that in a conversation with him, Prince Harry called his daughter “wonderful”.
Surely Harry found something to talk about with 74-year-old Ronnie Wood, who also became a father again a few years ago. The musician and his 43-year-old wife Sally, who attended the ceremony together, are raising five-year-old twins Gracie Jane and Alice Rose.
On Saturday, the daughter of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will turn a month old. The wife’s daughter was named Lilibet Diana in honor of her great-grandmother (Lilibet is the childhood nickname of Queen Elizabeth II) and grandmother. So far, the couple has not shown the baby to the public.
Today, Prince Harry will appear at another extremely important event for him – the solemn ceremony of erecting a monument to Princess Diana, who today would have turned 60 years old. There, the duke will meet with his brother Prince William and other members of the royal family, which, in light of talk of their strained relationship, has raised interest in the event.
