Prince Harry was very emotional as he shares how becoming a parent shapes his perspective of children in special need.

This happened Tuesday evening in London during an award ceremony that celebrates “inspirational children, their families and the people who support them,” according to the BBC News.

During his speech, Prince Harry, who is a patron of the WellChild – the charity organisation that are behind the event, explains how he had felt last year during the award. At the time, his wife, HRH, The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan was expecting but it was only then known to the couple. According to the prince, at the time he had squeezed “Meghan’s hand so tight during the award” and thought about “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.”

Prince Harry explains that as parents, the WellChild Awards, which is organised in honour of children who are seriously ill “pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.

During the speech, an emotional Prince Harry had to break off to compose his emotions as he fought back tears.

On the significance of the WellChild Awards, Prince Harry and Meghan’s official account explains:

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London.

WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports.”

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “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 – and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly 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.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organization, please visit @WellChild Photos ©?
