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.

“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.

Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran have teamed up for a special World Mental Health Day video. The prince and the popstar hope the video will help beat the stigma surrounding mental health.

The hilarious clip, which was filmed in Kensington Palace, sees Ed arrive at Harry’s home.

Harry joked that it was like looking in a mirror when he answered the door to the Shape of You singer.

They both sit down to discuss what they can do to help raise awareness about mental health, but it looks like Ed has the completely wrong idea.

“This for me, is a subject and a conversation that is just not talked about often enough, I think people all over the world are really suffering,” says Harry.

Ed explains that he is planning on writing a song to help raise awareness, but not about the issue Harry had in mind.

The singer quips, “That’s exactly what I’m trying to do, people just don’t understand what it's like for people like us. With the jokes, the snide comments, I just feel like it’s time that we stood up and we’re not going to take this anymore. We’re ginger and we’re going to fight.”

Ed Sheeran's ideas to change the perception of people with 'Moroccan sunset' hair

Harry replies, “Okay, that’s slightly awkward. There might have been a miscommunication but this is about World Mental Health Day.”

The Perfect singer then erases the words ‘gingers unite’ from the word document on his laptop.

The video ends with Harry and Ed urging people to talk and to listen to those suffering with their mental health.

The witty video is the perfect way to remind people of World Mental Health Day. “Both Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran want to ensure that not just today but every day, you look after yourself, your friends and those around you.

“There’s no need to suffer in silence – share how you’re feeling, ask how someone is doing and listen for the answer. Be willing to ask for help when you need it and know that we are all in this together,” the caption read.

They also added numerous mental health charities and resources that people can reach out to.

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.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are notoriously private about their personal lives. The new parents want to ensure that their son, Archie, lives a relatively normal life, away from the cameras.

Meghan and Harry have shared a handful of photos of their son, including a new one yesterday to mark Harry’s 35th birthday, but they often remain tight lipped about their darling boy.

During a recent royal engagement, Prince Harry gave a rare update on his baby boy. 

The dad was visiting the Rugby Football Union All Schools program at Lealands High School in Luton when he gushed about his son.

According to People, a member of the public asked, “Prince Harry. How is everything going with Archie?” 

Prince Harry replied, “He’s really well, thank you and he is getting so big.”

The Duke celebrated his 35th birthday on Sunday, September 15. In honour of Harry’s special day, Meghan shared a collage of personal photos to their Instagram account.

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.

"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.

"I too used to not understand that in this day and age there’s still such a distinct hatred/disrespect towards black women in the world, because I grew up sheltered and without personally feeling any negative way towards any race. But we have to open our eyes. It so prevalent," she tweeted.

"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."

Hopefully the media and general public realise the inequality which Prince Harry's wife faces as a result of her race, and checks their privilege.

Fair play to Jameela for saying it like it is.

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. 

The publication claims that' “When Prince Charles visited the film set a few weeks ago, a cameo was discussed. Now he is considering it.”

“They loved the buzz around the Queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that. He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.”

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.

Charles' mother Queen Elizabeth’s previous Bond cameo was at the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, and received rave reviews so he'd have big shoes to fill.

A convincing body double of the Queen made a dramatic entrance to the London stadium by throwing herself out of a helicopter and parachuting down into the tournament.

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

“Spending time inside our security and intelligence agencies, understanding more about the vital contribution they make to our national security, was a truly humbling experience,” he said

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. We all owe them deep gratitude for the difficult and dangerous work they do.”

Bond 25 is due out in spring of 2020, though production issues have halted production numerous times.

Daniel Craig received an ankle injury on set which required him to have surgery, and director Danny Boyle left the film over creative issues. Cary Joji Fukunaga has replaced him in the director's chair.

Another source told The Sun, “Bond 25 producers are desperate to sign Prince Charles. It is no secret that the film has suffered a number of setbacks but landing a royal could be just what the movie needs.”

Princess Eugenie is making waves as a princess, and her latest project has fans buzzing. The 29-year-old is about to become the first ever royal to launch a podcast, and the topic looks fascinating.

The Anti-Slavery Collective, which she co-founded with her best friend Julia De Boinville in 2017, announced via Instagram that Eugenie and Julia will co-host the Freedom United podcast.

The podcast aims to raise awareness about modern slavery, Eugenie explains;  "We are developing a podcast, Freedom United, and we will have a speaker series called 'Tech Tackles Trafficking.'"

The princess adds; "Now is the time to talk about this, this is on everyone's minds. And if it isn't, we will make it on their mind."

Fellow members of the British royal family have appeared on podcasts in the past, such as when Prince Harry interviewed Barack Obama in 2017 for BBC Radio 4's current affairs show, Today.

Eugenie, however, is the first royal to launch her own;  "We are doing this for the person who can't scream and shout like we can, for the women, girls, men, children all over the world."

Speaking about the new initiative, Eugenie said;

"This is a whole, much bigger issue that's a hidden crime; it's forced labour, forced marriage, domestic servitude, it's people not being paid correctly, it's the 2004 Chinese cockle pickers that died in Morecambe Bay."

A launch date for the podcast has yet to be announced, but judging by how important the discussion around modern slavery currently is, she'll have plenty of listeners.

We honestly never thought this moment would ever arrive, but fate has aligned the stars.

PRINCESS Meghan Markle and QUEEN Beyoncé met at the UK premiere of The Lion King last night, and everyone's hearts stopped from witnessing sheer excellence.

The new parents walked hand-in-hand down Leicester Square's red carpet, greeting fans and smiling for pictures before meeting the legendary Queen Bey and her husband Jay-Z.

The iconic entertainer voiced Nala in the Disney live-action movie, calling Meghan ‘my princess’ when they embraced. Jesus take the wheel, we've vacated the earth.

Apparently, the two couples exchanged talk over life with newborn babies, which is just adorable. They're real people too, see? 

Many of us will remember the Brit Awards acceptance video for Best International Group, in which Jay-Z and Beyoncé created in the Louvre with Meghan Markle as the Mona Lisa.

"In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas," the Instagram caption read. "Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."

It's unclear whether the pair have met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before, but they greeted each other like old pals.

"They are not here. They don’t come on every trip. We left them at home. They would loved to have been here," Beyoncé replied.

Jay Z then apparently offered the royal couple a parenting recommendation, saying; "The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself," he said.

What a surreal meeting between two powerhouse couples, busy inspiring the entire world with their talents. What we would have done to have bagged a seat at that premiere…

Meghan Markle's huge diamond ring was the subject of scrutiny when it was announced that she and Prince Harry were to be wed.

And now two years down the road, the Duchess of Sussex has put her own touch to her ring, which includes two of late Princess Diana's diamonds.

What was a gold band was now thinner and diamond-studded.

The ring was made by Court Jewelers Cleave and Company and Harry designed it.

It contains diamonds from his late mother Princess Diana's collection and a centre diamond from Botswana.

He revealed why he chose it during the couple's first sit-down interview with the BBC after they announced their engagement.

He said, ''The ring is obviously yellow gold because that's [Meghan's] favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewellery collection, to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together.''

At Trooping the Colour, Meghan also debuted the eternity ring Prince Harry gifted her for the first wedding anniversary.
