Prince Harry Mentions Meghan Markle in His WellChild Speech

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out in their usual glamorous style on Tuesday to attend the WellChild Awards, an annual event that has become a highlight of Harry's social calendar over the last few years. This was the first time Meghan attended, however, and Harry made sure to note that when he stood up to make a speech during the ceremony.

Harry paid tribute to the work of the organization, and the bravery of the children he's met during his work an ambassador, as well as those receiving awards that night. But he also ensured to sneak in a mention for his new wife.

"I have been a patron of the organization for 11 years now, this year I am especially grateful to be able to share the scope and magnitude of this work with my wife, who joins me here this evening."

Since they announced their engagement back in Nov. 2017, Meghan has quickly taken a deep interest in many of the causes that Harry holds close to his heart, particularly WellChild and Sentebale, the charity Harry founded with Prince Seeiso of the Lesotho royal family. Meghan has always been involved in charitable work, but in her new role as the Duchess of Sussex she's able to devote even more time to making a difference. Perhaps next year, it will be her standing up to make a speech.
