If there's one thing that can truly put Prince Harry in his very best element, it's the annual WellChild Awards.
This year proved to be no different. Joined once again by wife Duchess Meghan for the second year running, the two royals shared some glorious and emotional moments with guests, who turned out for the very special event held in London on Tuesday evening.
The awards are held each year to support and highlight the bravery of seriously ill children and their families, as well as thanking those who care for them.
Stepping out for the special occasion, Duchess Meghan looked radiant in a fitted green P.A.R.O.S.H. dress - the very same design she wore to announce her engagement to Prince Harry back in 2017!
Meghan paired the dress with a Sentaler camel coat and a chic Montunas bag, which featured a scarf handle. As Meghan wore her hair in loose waves, royal watchers were treated to a stunning spectacle indeed.

As the couple shared many sweet and candid moments with the special guests, Harry and Meghan's caring nature was patently clear - and the gorgeous new pictures relay it perfectly.

Harry is a patron of WellChild and has been a passionate supporter of the charity, dating as far back as 2007.
The charity itself supports over 100,000 children and young people who are living with serious and complex health conditions.
It helps to give them proper support at home, as well as providing funds to their carers and families.
WellChild was also one of the four charities chosen by Meghan and Harry to benefit from the donations from the public after the birth of their son, baby Archie.

During the poignant event, Prince Harry delivered an incredible and touching speech about how his perspective has changed since becoming a parent.
"It has been over a decade since I first came to these awards and every year they never fail to surprise and inspire me. Yet this year, it resonates in a different way, because now I'm a father," he said.
He explained that last year, when he attended the awards, he and Meghan knew they were expecting a baby.
"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," he said.
The Duke was visibly emotional as he continued: "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."

The extra special event comes after a whirlwind few weeks for the royals, who wrapped up their 10-day tour of Africa at the beginning of October.
The royal family of three travelled to South Africa together, where they met with a number of locals and embraced local culture.
Royal fans were also thrilled to get a proper glimpse of baby Archie, who adorably made an appearance during one of the couple's engagements.
While Archie has remained out of the public eye since, we're sure we'll be seeing more of the young royal as Harry and Meghan continue to settle as new royal parents.
