Prince Harry’s Return to the UK for WellChild Awards

Prince Harry made his first visit to the UK in three months to attend the WellChild Awards, an annual charity awards ceremony that celebrates the achievements and resilience of seriously ill children and their families. The event took place on the eve of the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death. Queen Elizabeth, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, passed away at Balmoral in Scotland on September 8, 2022, after a reign of 70 years.

Harry’s Reflection on the Late Queen

During his attendance at the WellChild Awards, Prince Harry expressed sentiments about Queen Elizabeth, stating that she is “looking down on us all” and is pleased that they are together to continue spotlighting an incredible community. He also mentioned that despite the circumstances, the late Queen would have encouraged him to attend the event rather than staying with her during her final days.

Solo Visit without Meghan and Children

Prince Harry’s visit to the UK was solo, as his wife Meghan and their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, remained in their home in Montecito, California. The Duke of Sussex attended the awards ceremony, where he is a patron of WellChild, and interacted with the award recipients and their families.

Potential Reunion Unlikely with Family Members

Prince Harry was not expected to have a reunion with his father, King Charles III, or his brother, Prince William, during this visit. Reports indicated that there had been little contact between the siblings in recent months. Prince William was engaged in a separate event in Dorset, while King Charles III was near Balmoral, Scotland.

Harry’s Previous UK Appearance and His Role with WellChild

Prince Harry’s last public appearance in the UK occurred three months ago during his high-profile legal case at the High Court against Mirror Group Newspapers. He has been a patron of WellChild for 15 years and regularly attends its annual awards ceremony, although Meghan, who had been a guest at past events, was not expected to join him.

WellChild Awards and Harry’s Schedule

The WellChild Awards serve as a platform to recognize children and young people in the UK living with long-term, complex medical needs, celebrating their resilience and spirit. During the event, Prince Harry participated in a pre-ceremony reception and presented the award for Inspirational Child (aged four to six), delivering a speech.

King Charles III and Queen Camilla’s Private Remembrance

King Charles III and Queen Camilla were not anticipated to participate in any public engagements during the week, as they privately marked the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death at their Scottish retreat.

Harry’s Upcoming Engagement at Invictus Games

Prince Harry’s visit to the UK preceded his involvement in the Invictus Games, a paralympic-style competition for injured military personnel and veterans that he founded. He is set to give a welcome speech at the opening ceremony of the games in Dusseldorf, Germany, followed by Meghan’s expected arrival later in the week to join him in various event activities.

Challenges Ahead for the Games

The Invictus Games are scheduled to coincide with a demonstration by activists who believe the German military will use the event to target students for recruitment. Prince Harry will also appear on a German sports studio show to promote the Invictus Games. He is expected to travel by helicopter from the games’ opening ceremony to the ZDF studios in Mainz for the live discussion, accompanied by the German defense minister and three competitors from the games. Meghan will participate in the closing ceremony, where both Harry and Meghan are set to deliver speeches, with singer Rita Ora performing.
