The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been due to attend last year's WellChild Awards ceremony on 8 September, but pulled out so Harry could travel to Scotland as concerns grew for his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Despite not being able to meet last year's winners in person, Harry fulfilled his promise and made an emotional video call to their winners and their families from his Montecito home.

In a video exclusively shared with HELLO! back in October, Harry appeared visibly moved when told his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, would have been so proud of him.

WellChild is the national UK charity that supports children and young people with exceptional health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.
