Meghan Markle recently attended the WellChild Awards at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
She was accompanied by husband Prince Harry, 33, who is a patron for WellChild, a national charity for seriously ill children and their families.
The Duchess of Sussex is no stranger to philanthropic work, with years of humanitarian work behind her before she even met Harry.
Speaking to a little girl at the ceremony, the Duchess of Sussex showed she shared her husband’s caring nature.
Matilda, 7, suffers from spina bifida and has aspirations to be a nurse, according to the Metro.
According to mother Sharon Booth, 47, Meghan told the young girl: “Never stop smiling as you’ve got a beautiful smile”.
Meghan also had a touching reaction after she was presented with a bouquet of white roses by the young girl.
Upon receiving the bouquet, she took out a single white rose and gave it to Matilda.
Sharon explained: “Matilda chose the flowers, she was shell-shocked to be given the rose, she said she’s going to put it in her memory box.”
Pictures from the event portray the sweet interaction, with both Meghan and Prince Harry interacting with the young girl.
Prince Harry gave an opening speech as part of the evening talking about the “hope, resilience and selflessness” among attendees.
He said: “This evening, we are celebrating remarkable stories of hope, resilience and selflessness.
“The children and young people you will meet tonight are coping with challenges few of us can imagine, yet they inspire those around with such positivity and determination every day.”
During the evening, Meghan revealed the one thing her and Prince Harry don’t like about being royal.
At the WellChild awards, Meghan let slip that she doesn’t like the cameras being around her.
Meghan and Harry spent the night talking to recipients of the awards, including four-year-old Mckenzie Brackley.
The little boy, who won an Inspirational Child award for strength following his battle with acute flaccid paralysis, told the Duke and Duchess that he didn’t like the cameras being around.
Meghan and Harry, who are used to being surrounded by cameras, then told Mckenzie that they completely agreed.
Talking to reporters on the night, Mckenzie’s mother Amy said: “They were so lovely. They knew [Mckenzie] was scared of the cameras and they said they didn’t like the cameras either so they turned around.”
It is known that Meghan and Harry haven’t had the easiest of times when it comes to cameras and publicity. Harry reportedly has tried to scale back public appearances in recent weeks, to try and tone down and control the media frenzy around his wife.
