Prince Harry and 100 Women in Finance

Last night, Prince Harry joined 100 Women in Finance for a black-tie gala in support of WellChild.

The evening held at the Victoria and Albert Museum brought out Prince Harry dressed to the nines in a black dinner suit and bow tie all for the charity he is Patron of.

WellChild is a national charity which supports seriously ill children and their families.

Prince Harry gave a short speech where he thanked WellChild for “making a difference to the lives of hundreds of children and young people”.

Continuing on, he said: “I know the support will once again have a deep impact on the charity.

“I have met the very children and young people for whom WellChild really does change their lives.”

He spoke about meeting Jill Evans, a mother who was supported by WellChild while he son, six-year-old Noah is dealing with a rare lung condition.

“I had the privilege of meeting Jill Evans and hearing Jill’s story and I have no doubt how life-changing the support from the WellChild nurses can be,” Prince Harry added.

Ms Evans spoke of how it was “amazing” to see Prince Harry again. The two first met last year.

Adding on she said: “He’s such a lovely guy and really passionate about the charity.

“It was really nice to catch up with him, he’s such a nice guy.”

Prince Harry has been Patron of WellChild since 2012. Last year, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the 100 Women in Finance fundraiser.

Prince Harry also makes sure he attends the WellChild Awards each year that “celebrate the inspirational qualities of the UK’s seriously ill children and young people along with those who go that extra mile to make a difference to their lives” according to the charity’s webpage.

The awards consist of six categories including ‘Inspirational Nurse’, ‘Inspirational Child or Young Person’ and ‘Most Caring Child or Young Person.’
