Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made the United States of America their new residence. The Duke and Duchess are already volunteering for roles outside their royal duties. Out of these roles, one of the most important aspects is maintaining their legacy and fighting for families. Recently, Meghan Markle read an open letter addressed to Nancy Pelosi, who was the Speaker of the House, and Chuck Schumer, the Majority leader.
The letter was about introducing paid parental leave within the system. While Markle found herself fighting for the parents and their rights, Harry took the children’s side. Prince Harry worked alongside little children at WellChild Hopes and Dreams competitions. He took the role of a judge.
What is WellChild, and How is Prince Harry Associated With?
WellChild is a famous charity organization in the United Kingdom that provides aid to seriously ill children who require immediate medical attention. Prince Harry has been a patron of WellChild since 2007. So, there is little doubt that he will be befitting as the judge for WellChild’s 2021 photo competition that is titled “Hopes and Dreams: My life through a lens.”
Why did Harry get Emotional?
The competition revolves around photos submitted by the participants, where they showcase photos that show what life has become for the people who are affected by serious illnesses. This has made Prince harry a bit emotional. The Duke of Sussex stated that he was moved by the submissions that the participants had made. He said that the photographs capture each and every moment of the life of a person who deals with a serious illness.
He, along with Gaby Roslin, Nick Fischer, and Christ Westbrook, judged the participants. Harry later commented that the competition and the families and children associated with WellChild had shown brilliant “optimism and resilience.” The first prize for the competition went to Ruby Smallman’s “Hope in an Oak.” The picture was about a little child standing in front of an Oaktree, signifying the beauty of life.
