This Wednesday, June 30 was a special day for Prince Harry since it marked his very first public outing in England, since his arrival in the country, five days earlier. After observing a quarantine and making sure he did not have the Covid-19, the Duke of Sussex participated in the WellChild Awards, held in London. An event set up by the eponymous association which helps sick children and of which he has sponsored for fourteen years.
The traditional awards ceremony took place at Kew Gardens (the famous Royal Botanic Gardens). In a statement, it was stated that Meghan Markle’s husband “met each winner in turn to congratulate them as they received their awards.” He also greeted Ed Sheeran, who made the trip for the occasion. The singer and the Duke of Sussex are both friends and have in common that they recently became dads.

For his part, Prince William’s brother also enlarged his family on June 4, with the arrival in the world of Lilibet Diana.
