The touching awards commemorate the most inspirational children and young people who are battling serious or complex medical issues within the country. Harry has been a patron of the charity since 2007 and always gives an emotional speech at the ceremony. This will be live-streamed from 6.15pm on Thursday, 7 September – so be sure to bookmark it in your diary!
The event will begin at 5.15pm with a drinks and canapés reception where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will meet many of the award winners – and HELLO! will be there to record all the best and most emotional moments. The live-streamed awards ceremony will then start at 6.15pm.
Last year, the Duke of Sussex said he had been “deeply moved” by children’s entries in a nationwide photographic competition sharing what life is like for families living with serious health needs.
The father-of-two said: “The children and families I’ve had the honour of meeting over my years working with WellChild have shown incredible optimism, courage, and resilience.
“I wasn’t only proud to participate as a judge in this exhibition – I was deeply moved by each and every photograph, as they capture a moment and say so much about their personal story. Every person who is part of the WellChild family is a true inspiration. Congratulations to all the entries and a special cheer to the winners!”
