Prince Harry was left feeling a little disappointed at a charity event held in London yesterday when he found himself seated between two men. When the Prince, known for his mischievous side, addressed the 200-strong crowd at a fundraising gala dinner held by 100 Women in Hedge Fund, he quipped: “I am not entirely sure who made the seating plan, but I am sitting between two men. I thought it would just be 100 women and myself.”
The event, which was held in The Royal Hospital in Chelsea, was to raise funds for children's charity WellChild of which Harry is a patron. His brother William and sister-in-law Kate are also patrons, but were notably absent. It has been reported that Kate is suffering from pregnancy sickness and was unable to attend.
Harry's passion for the charity was evident in his speech when he said: “There are few organisations which share WellChild's hunger and determination to do better; my support and admiration for this important charity grows stronger with every inspirational young person, parent or carer that I am lucky enough to meet.”
Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana, was known for her warmth with children and it seems Harry has certainly inherited his mum's traits.
