The 39-year-old presented the Walter Payton Man of the Year award to Pittsburgh Steelers footballer Cameron Heyward at the event at the Resorts World Theater, leaving the audience gasping in surprise.

Harry joked about the players “taking a breather every 15 seconds” and then said: “Instead of a 10-month season, let’s just make it 18 weeks. Genius.”

He added: “Joking aside, what you do on and off the field is remarkable. You are role models for millions in the way you carry yourselves and give back.”

    Charles’s bombshell cancer diagnosis came just 10 days after he was treated for an enlarged prostate in London.

    While Harry jetted back to the States, Meghan was seen driving near the couple’s $14million Montecito home on Wednesday.
