Prince Harry Is Great With Kids

Tonight, Prince Harry attended the 2013 WellChild Awards at the Dorchester Hotel.  The prince is patron of the charity, which provides support and quality care for seriously ill children and those who care for them.

Royal reporter Richard Palmer attended the event, and witnessed Harry’s interaction with several youngsters, many of whom were suffering from a life-threatening illness.

Nine-year-old Nikki Christou told Harry that she shares the same birthday as his nephew, Prince George.  Not only that, but her dad shares the baby’s name, and her brother, Alexander has the heir’s middle name.

Wow, very, very weird,” Harry said adorably.

“I’ve just literally seen him,” he told Nikki.  “Normally when I see him he’s either sleeping or crying but I’ve just seen him smile. It was the first time I’ve seen him smile.”

Last year, the kids got cheeky with Harry, whose nude Vegas photos were leaked to the press.

A young boy named Alex Logan told ITV before the event that he was going to tell Prince Harry that he was “glad he got his clothes on.”

Harry saw the TV spot and egged Alex on.

“I hear you were on ITV earlier, you said something cheeky. Let’s not talk about that here,” the prince said.

Earlier in the day, Harry and Prince William took part in BGC’s Global Charity Day, held annually to commemorate employees lost in the September 11th attacks.
