The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the WellChild Awards last night and it was quite an emotional event for the new parents, especially for Prince Harry.

The dad was delivering a speech when he welled up on stage.

According to Hello! Magazine, Harry fought back the tears as he spoke about the early days of Meghan’s pregnancy.

The dad said, “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child – no one else did at the time, but we did…"

Harry, who was overcome with emotion, had to pause his speech. He then continued, “I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tight during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time.  

“And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own,” he added.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their son Archie on May 6. The Sussex’s recently travelled to Africa for their first royal tour as a family-of-three.

The Duchess of Sussex has created a heartfelt video for International Day of the Girl and it’ll bring a tear to your eye.

The video, which was shared on the SussexRoyal Instagram account, features clips of young women all around the world, as well as footage of the Duchess when she was a young girl.

In the video, Meghan says;

“Today is International Day of the Girl.

“Every girl has potential, she has promise, she has the right to learn, the right to be heard, the right to play and to discover. The right to be exactly who she is.

“It is said that girls with dreams become women with vision.

“If you see something that you don’t like or that you’re offended by on television or any other place, write letters and send them to the right people and you can really make a difference, for not just yourself but for lots of other people.

"So to each one of you, keep asking questions, keep pushing forward, keep shining brightly. Know your worth and know that we are behind you, every step of the way.

Meghan has been a long time advocate for women’s and girl’s rights, even before she became a member of the royal family.

The Duchess campaigned against a sexist advert at the mere age of 11.

“HRH recently shared a quote during a speech in Cape Town: “Visualize your highest self, and show up as her.

“To all the young girls reading this today on International Day of the Girl, that quote is for you,” Meghan wrote alongside the video.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made their first public appearance since announcing they are suing the Mail On Sunday.

The couple continued their work in Africa as they arrived in Tembisa, a township in Johannesburg.

On the final day of their tour, Harry and Meghan met  young entrepreneurs at a hub that helps create opportunity, and is a hive for creativity and social enterprise. 

Speaking at the engagement, Prince Harry said that his family’s trip to Africa has been inspiring.

“It’s moments like today and meeting all of you, that inspires us. Whether supporting young entrepreneurs, empowering women and girls, or challenging the issue of gender-based violence; whether it’s been planting trees, clearing landmines, or protecting the most beautiful creatures and places on the planet, these experiences have affirmed our love of Africa, and the issues that are so important to us.

He added, “We will firmly stand up for what we believe. We are fortunate enough to have a position that gives us amazing opportunities, and we want to do all we can to play our part in building a better world.”

“We will always seek to challenge injustice and to speak out for those who may feel unheard. So no matter your background, your nationality, your age or gender, your sexuality, your physical ability, no matter your circumstance or colour or of your skin – we believe in you, and we intend to spend our entire lives making sure you have the opportunity to succeed – and to change the world,” the Duke added.

Harry’s speech mirrors the powerful statement he issued last night. The prince stressed that he will not let the British tabloid media bully his wife anymore.

He said, “I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been. Because in today’s digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day’s coverage is no longer tomorrow’s chip-paper.

The dad continued, “For these select media this is a game, and one that we have been unwilling to play from the start. I have been a silent witness to her private suffering for too long. To stand back and do nothing would be contrary to everything we believe in.”

The Duchess of Sussex has opened up about being a working mum during a royal engagement in South Africa.

Meghan, who welcomed her son, Archie on May 6 has been adjusting to life as a new mum, but her royal status doesn’t stop her from experiencing the same hurdles many of us face on this journey.

Meghan just returned to work this September after three months of maternity leave.

“There are days when it’s a lot to juggle but then you meet someone, have an impact on them & it’s so rewarding,” the mum gushed.

Baby Archie made his first appearance on the Sussex royal tour this morning and he looked as cute as pie.

A royal etiquette expert has explained some of the more confusing royal style rules to news.com.au, and we can't even process how strange this is.

With a rake of high profile events in the Buckingham Palace calendar, The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex have the chance to wear the finest jewels in the world. 

Apparently, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are banned from wearing diamonds during the day, which we think sounds pretty unfair.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@meghanmarkle_official) on

Both women possess some beautiful jewellery of their own, and from their late mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.

The pair are frequently given permission to wear select pieces from the royal collection, as well as their own. Basically, they own a shed-load of bling.

However, it turns out that the Duchesses are fairly restricted in what jewels they can wear at specific times during the day. Etiquette teacher Myka Meier has given us the lowdown.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @the_royalfamilies on

“Other jewels are worn pre-6pm,” Meier told news.com.au, which explains why the duo are normally only seen sporting stones like pearls and topaz, or minimalist precious metal pieces during the day as well as their engagement rings.

The Duchesses are meant to avoid looking "flashy" before the evening time, for some reason. 

“Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires," explains Meier.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@princess.diana.forever) on

"At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.”

Considering their lifestyle is fairly different to our own, we don't think not wearing jewels while the sun is up will suggest that they're just like us.

Jameela Jamil has stepped in to defend Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle against the cruel treatment by the British press regarding her usage of private planes to go on holiday last week.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Pink, Elton John, and Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, have all blasted the media for degrading the Duchess consistently and unfairly.

The Good Place actress and activist Jameela Jamil has now had her say, pointing out that the reason why the royals take private planes is because of their assassination risk.

"Ugh. Dear England and English press, just say you hate her because she’s black, and him for marrying a black woman and be done with it God dammit," she wrote on Twitter.

"Your bullying is so embarrassing and obvious. You’ve all lost your marbles. It’s 2019. Grow up.

"I will never forget reading an English sh*t rag, writing the words, “Meghan’s exotic DNA shall certainly THICKEN the royal blue blood line…” (bangs head against table and throws up in own mouth.)" Jamil added.

"ALSO, it’s not safe for us to be on the same planes as royals or presidents you absolute muppets. They are prime targets for kidnap and sometimes assassination. It’s in the interest of us civilians to not be endangered by proximity to people in such powerful positions."

You can have your chance to stay in a property beside Prince William and Kate Middleton's country house in west Norfolk, and it's cheaper than a one-bedroom flat in London.

The Sandringham Estate listing have one catch; tenants must be cat-free and vetted, instead of a first-come first-served basis.

The house next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in West Norfolk is up for rent for just £700 per month, as Metro reports

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@royaltyeurope_kids_fashion_) on

The Sandringham Estate rents out an array of properties in the area, including 20 Cherry Tree. The cottaged terrace has two bedrooms across from Amner Hall.

The property has a huge amount of green garden space and parking, but its famous neighbours will most likely be the main draw.

The website points out that they prefer to rent their properties to people who "live and work locally," though they'll consider "those moving to the area."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@rosy_____72) on

The letting adds, "Properties are not let on a first-come, first-served basis, but rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property."

They have a very strict no cat policy, but dogs will be "considered". The area has only 29 houses and a population of roughly 63 people. 

Amner Hall was a wedding gift to Prince William and Kate from The Queen, with about £1.5 million spent upgrading the mansion before they moved in.

Anmer has a small population but a wide variety of amenities including; a social club offering film nights, quiz evenings and barbeques, an active Bowls Club and a Women’s Institute and a 14th century church; St Mary the Virgin.

Most of the homes in the village were lived in by those employed at Amner Hall and the Royal estate.

If you're interested in applying for the property and having William and Kate nearby, you can do so via the Sandringham Estate website.

We're shaken, but not stirred, with the latest Bond 25 news.

Prince Charles has reportedly been invited to join Daniel Craig in the next superspy movie, according to The Sun.

The heir to the throne "discussed" a potential cameo in the next flick, while visiting the set of the film alongside 007 stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris.

Prince Charles has a strong connection to the British intelligence network. The Prince of Wales has been Royal Patron to the intelligence Services since 2011, which include M15.

Another insider also told The Sun that if Prince Charles turns down the opportunity, then “Harry and Wills could be in producers’ sights next"

He continued;

 “These agencies are full of people from everyday backgrounds doing the most extraordinary work to keep us safe. They work in secret, often not even able to tell their family and friends about the work they do or the stresses they face. They are driven by an unrivalled patriotism and dedication to upholding the values of this country.

The Duchess of Sussex has made history by becoming the first ever guest editor of British Vogue’s September issue. However, instead of celebrating Meghan’s achievements, people have chosen to belittle the new mum yet again and it just has to stop.

Meghan has gone from being adored by the British press to swiftly becoming the ‘bratty’ member of the royal family whose feminist and left-of-centre views are too much for the red tops to handle. 

They have slated the new mum in every way possible in recent months. She was branded a diva and accused of treating her staff poorly. She was slated for looking tired despite the fact that she had just welcomed a baby. She was pitted against the Duchess of Cambridge and rumours about the pair’s supposed feud were inescapable.

Meghan was mum-shamed within moments of making her first public appearance with baby Archie. They complain when she doesn’t attend events and accuse her of being attention seeking when she does. 

It seems like the former Suits actress simply cannot win, no matter what she does.

Would it have been easier for Meghan to don an overpriced dress and grin for the cover of British Vogue’s September issue? Yes, but instead the mum curated an issue, alongside Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful and his team, that has made history, days before it’s publication date.

Meghan was offered to appear on the cover of the renowned fashion magazine, but politely declined, admitting that she felt it would be too boastful. Instead she gave 15 iconic women who will undoubtedly inspire the readers of one of Britain’s most iconic publications.

The cover made history by featuring one of the youngest cover stars, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg and the publication’s oldest cover star, 81-year-old Jane Fonda.

As well as Thunberg and Fonda, New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke and Salma Hayek grace the front page.

Yara Shahidi, Laverne Cox, Jameela Jamil, Gemma Chan and Christy Turlington Burns also feature.

Adwoa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Francesca Hayward and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie complete the line-up.

All of these women have important and empowering stories to share and the Duchess of Sussex generously gave them the opportunity to grace the cover and share their stories amongst the pages of the glossy magazine.

The Forces for Change issue has given these women a voice in a world that so quickly silences women for being different, especially women like Meghan Markle.

The Duchess stepped aside and let them share their words of wisdom. She was selfless, encouraging and incredibly kind in this act, so why do people feel the need to call her attention seeking, arrogant and stuck up?

Image result for british vogue september 2019

Why do people fail to appreciate and acknowledge all of the momentous things she has achieved since joining the royal family?

Do these people just prefer to hate, criticise and downplay every single thing Meghan does? Does it make them feel better? Do they get a kick out of belittling a woman who has given up her privacy, and any ounce of normality for love?

The never-ending hatred aimed at the Duchess of Sussex needs to stop, because we can all agree that if the roles were reversed, the Duchess of Cambridge would be hailed ‘the people’s princess’ if she was the guest editor of British Vogue.
