Speaking at Central London last night, Prince Harry recalled how he and his wife, Meghan Markle, had to speak at the event last year even though they knew that Meghan was pregnant at the time, and there could be a possibility of her giving birth to an ill child.
Prince Harry, whose son Archie is well and healthy, broke down as he reminisced about what went through he and his wife’s head that period and had to be comforted by the event co-host Gaby Roslin as he apologised to those watching .
He said: ‘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 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.’
