Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at WellChild Awards Night – SEE PHOTO

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for their first joint engagement after their tour of Africa on Tuesday night, attending the annual WellChild Awards at The Royal Lancaster Hotel.

It was an emotional evening for Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, as they praised the courage of seriously ill children and their families and thanked those who care for and support them.

Before the ceremony, the couple had the opportunity to meet the young winners of each award category and their families.

Harry, who has been Patron of WellChild since 2007, presented the Award for Most Inspirational Child (aged 4-6) before delivering a touching speech.

The charity was one of four chosen by Harry and Meghan to benefit from the generous donations made by the public to mark the birth of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor in May this year.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were all smiles as they arrived at the WellChild Awards on Tuesday evening, an event very close to the couple’s hearts, in particular Harry’s, who has been Patron of WellChild since 2007.

The awards marked a rare night off of parenting duties for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who will have left baby Archie in safe hands at their family home Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
