Prince Harry hosts WellChild party at Buckingham Palace

On Monday, Prince Harry hosted yet another party at Buckingham Palace. This time in support of WellChild, a charity that helps ill children to be cared for from the comfort of their own home.

Just recently, Prince Harry hosted another party at the palace; his first ever garden party.

Every year Prince Harry makes sure he meets with the children and families being supported by the foundation. This year, the party also marked the 40th birthday of WellChild.

The organisers of the #NOTANURSE_BUT campaign, a parent advisory committee to help the growing number of parents that are now faced with the massive cost of home care all so their children may have a normal as possible life.

“You’ve been able to share your experiences,” Harry said to those he met. “Now you’re professionals at this. You’ve got to try to share these experiences and help other people. I’d imagine it’s one hell of a decision to say, ‘I want my children at home.’ ”

Prince Harry has been Patron of WellChild for the past ten years. The charity helps over 100,000 children and youth receive medical care from home.

Along with talking to the children and families supported by the Foundation, Prince Harry spoke to volunteers from the Helping Hands project set up by WellChild.

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.’
