The 37-year-old former "Suits" star - perfectly rocking a black Altuzarra pantsuit paired with a shirt by Deitas - and the 33-year-old British royal stepped out to meet a few young winners and their families at The WellChild Awards, which honors gravely ill children and their caregiviers. It's annual event Harry doesn't miss, so of course, his wife was there this year to support.

Harry spoke to all the winners with a touching speech, sharing: "First, let me congratulate all of those nominated tonight," he said. "Every one of you is truly amazing. You have shown all of us what it means to be a champion – whether for yourself, your family, your community, or someone in need.

“The stories that we’ve all just heard – of resilience, strength of spirit, and the power of working together – were without doubt, incredibly moving and motivating," he continued. "They really sum up what WellChild is all about – giving families the best chance to care for their children at home, and supporting them through the reality of all that that entails."

“I would like to thank all the families here this evening. The mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters, and many other family members who are devoted to their children and are giving them the best care possible. You are such fierce advocates for your children and in doing everything in your power to give your family the best chance at a happy life. It is quite simply amazing," he concluded.





They make giving back look so cool!

In blended family love news...

Swizz Beatz and his wife Alicia Keys planned a family vacay to Egypt, so they decided to invite Swizz's ex-wife/son' mother Mashonda Tifrere along for the fun. No real surprise there since Mashonda embarked on a family vacay with the Dean Family before.

Swizz, Alicia, Mashonda and their kids - Kasseem Jr. (whom Swizz shares with Mashonda), sons Genesis Ali and Egypt Daoud (whom he shares with Alicia), son Prince Nasir and daughter Nicole (from two previous relationships) - jetted to Egypt to soak in all the knowledge, epic sculptures and artifacts they could. They seem to make it work. We also here Nicole's mother Jahna may have been here as well.

Oh, and Mashonda is making this co-parenting thing work for her pockets too. She recently was out promoting her new co-parenting book, "Blend: The Secret to Co-Parenting and Creating a Balanced Family," where she shares insights about her co-parenting journey with her ex-husband and her son's step mother.

“Co-parenting and blending is a universal topic and many don’t know where to begin,” Mashonda added. “This book will serve as the inspiration and blueprint that is needed to raise emotionally and mentally healthy children.”

With so many kids in the mix, it was important for Mashonda to find a healthy co-parenting balance when her son questioned her about why she doesn't get along with his father.

“Six years ago, my [then] 5-year-old son asked me why his father and I didn’t like each other anymore. I realized that he was reacting to our lack of communication and unity as parents. It was a wake-up call,” the 40-year-old artist said in an interview chatting about her new book.

The "Superwoman" singer contributed to the book, providing a heartfelt foreword. And so did Swizz. He wrote a chapter for fathers.

“With a dedicated chapter for fathers written by Swizz and a heartfelt foreword penned by Alicia, the three of us are raising our voices to help generations of families worldwide,” Mashonda shared. “I’m certain that the book will become a toolbox for mindful parents all over the world.”

Mashonda's book is expected to be released October 2nd.
