Prince Harry appeared alongside Ed Sheeran and British singer Anne-Marie at his first event since landing in the UK last week.
The trio attended a garden party at London’s Kew Gardens in honor of the WellChild Awards. The awards, of which Harry is patron, celebrates the inspirational qualities of the UK’s seriously ill children.
Harry bonded over fatherhood with Sheeran at the event. The singer welcomed his first child last year, a baby girl named Lyra Antarctica, while the duke welcomed his second child Lilibet Diana in June.

“Congratulations, a girl right?” Sheeran asked Harry, according to Hello! Magazine. “We just had a little girl 10 months ago now. You’re still in the trenches now! How do you manage with two?”
“Two is definitely a juggle,” Harry responded.
The publication added that while speaking to another guest later during the event, Harry said: “We’ve been lucky so far, she’s very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.”
This wasn’t the first time the duke and Sheeran met. They previously filmed a video together for World Mental Health Day in October 2019.
Harry is in the UK for the unveiling of a statue of Princess Diana on Thursday, marking what would have been her 60th birthday.
Prince William is the only other royal family member confirmed to attend the ceremony, which will take place at Diana’s former Kensington Palace home.
