Meghan Markle forced to miss Prince Harry’s award ceremony as one of their children ‘became unwell’

The Duchess of Sussex was due to appear alongside her husband…

The news was confirmed by PA, who revealed: “The Duchess of Sussex, who had been expected to attend the event, was not present as one of their children became unwell the PA news agency understands.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are the proud parents of four-year-old Prince Archie and two-year-old Princess Lilibet. It wasn’t confirmed which of their little ones were taken unwell but it was expected that Meghan would appear alongside her husband on the night.

In his first appearance in 2024, the Prince was honoured with a Living Legends of Aviation medal at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, for his work as a British Army veteran and pilot.

Harry completed two tours of Afghanistan as a forward air controller and an Apache helicopter pilot, having flown countless training missions in the UK, US, and Australia.

He also served for 10 years in the military, rising to the rank of Captain, and later founded the Invictus Games – a sporting event for wounded military personnel and veterans.

Harry made a “poetic” speech according to Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke, who told HELLO!: “He talked about taking off and being up in God’s playground, up in the clouds, and he talked about the taste of magic [being up there,] it was poetic.”
