Today, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex and Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, attended the Commonwealth Youth Roundtable held at Lancaster House in London
The role of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador is a role that he took over from his grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, last April.
In his continued support of young people, the meeting with young leaders from across the Commonwealth was held to discuss the issues affecting individuals under 30 across the Commonwealth’s 53 nations.
He commended the youth of the Commonwealth, saying:
“It’s clear to me that the 1.4 billion youth of the Commonwealth are the most valuable advocates. The power of connected and informed young people is difficult to ignore.”
With over half of the populations in Commonwealth countries under the age of 30, Prince Harry encouraged the young people to be more active in taking on leading roles in their countries.
The father-to-be who is expecting his first child with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex in less than 3 months, revealed to the group,
“As someone who is about to become a father, I am acutely aware of our shared responsibility to make this world more resilient and its inhabitants more accountable for the next generation.”
In his passionate speech at the Commonwealth Roundtable, the Duke of Sussex mentioned that impending fatherhood has made him more accountable and responsible.
God bless HRH, Harry the Duke of Sussex and God save the Queen!
FOR GOD, QUEEN AND COUNTRY
