Prince Harry has made a surprise appearance at a London charity event to meet with seriously ill children

LONDON -- Prince Harry has made a surprise appearance at a London charity event to meet with seriously ill children.

On Wednesday, Harry visited Kew Gardens in west London for an awards ceremony for WellChild, a charity he is patron of. He was joined at the garden party by celebrities including Ed Sheeran and Ronnie Wood.

He chatted with children who won awards and their families, and was seen telling some of those attending that it was “quite a juggle” coping with his newborn daughter, Lilibet, and his 2-year-old son, Archie.

In a statement released by WellChild, Harry said the charity had “an extraordinarily special place in my heart.”

“Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild," he said.

Harry and William commissioned the statue of their mother in 2017 to honor her legacy. The monument will be unveiled Thursday in Kensington Palace, the royals' childhood home.
