Prince Harry just gave Meghan Markle the sweetest compliment on her post-baby look

Prince Harry sure is #husbandgoals. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out on Tuesday night to attend the annual WellChild Awards, an organization that has been near and dear to Prince Harry's heart since he became a patron in 2007. Last year was Meghan Markle's first time at the ceremony, and the duke took the opportunity to share how becoming a dad to Archie this year has only heightened his love for the charity, which is dedicated to sick children and their caretakers.

"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," he said during his speech. 

Following the speeches, Prince Harry was overheard giving Meghan some reassurance about her post-baby look during a private conversation with the ceremony's winners. 

"They were very lovely," explained 10-year-old Emmie Narayn-Nicholas to Hello! magazine. "When she sat down I said 'Oh you look amazing and you’ve just had a baby'. He looked at her and went 'See I told you!' in a way that we would. It did feel like they were very down to earth."

Tuesday evening's event was Duchess Meghan's first public engagement following the royals' 10-day trip to Africa, where they focused on initiatives such as female empowerment, access to education, healthcare and environmentalism. Archie, five months, also made his official debut!
