Prince Harry is seriously tugging on our heart strings while giving an emotional speech at the WellChild Awards in London overnight.

The Duke of Sussex was brought to tears while speaking about parenthood and becoming a father for the first time.

He was brought up on stage to present an award when he began to speak about how he and his wife Meghan Markle knew that they were expecting a baby during the awards last year, although it was a secret from the world at the time.

He began choking up as he thought about the memory and spoke about how all parents want to do is protect their children and make sure they grow up to be happy and healthy.

You can watch the beautiful moment in the video above. But have a tissue ready!

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “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 – and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly 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 heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images
