The prince loves kids, and it really shows in his charitable work. Most recently, Prince Harry visited a pair of siblings who both have terminal illnesses. Harry had met Ollie and Amelia at last year's WellChild Awards, and this week, he reunited with them at a London hospital.

Ollie, 6, and his little sister both suffer from Batten disease, a rare nervous system disorder that afflicts children, causing them to slowly lose the ability to walk, eat, talk and breathe. Most children diagnosed with Batten disease don't live past 12 years old. Ollie and Amelia both have the disease, but their two older brothers don't.

The kids' parents snapped some photos of Prince Harry's visit and posted them to Facebook, because something this good and pure is something we should all be able to enjoy.

The parents also wrote a sweet comment about the visit with Harry, who they said was touched by their kids' fight.

"For an hour Prince Harry sat with us talking and playing with our children, laughing and making memories. The very thing our children want the most in life, to be happy and having fun," they wrote. "We feel so much pride knowing that Ollie and Amelia are touching the lives of the people they meet, with their love and their strength. The love, the support and the laughter within that treatment room on Tuesday will stay with us forever. From the bottom of our hearts we thank Prince Harry for his support, his time and his kindness towards our family and our journey with Batten Disease. It was truly incredible to watch him with our children and to have the opportunity to talk with him about our journey with Battens."
