As the world looks forward to the upcoming royal nuptials, there is another exciting partnership on the horizon. Prince Harry can't contain his excitement as fiancée Meghan Markle is set to work hand in hand with him in his newly appointed role.
Harry has recently been appointed by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, to the position of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. A position in which Meghan will work closely with Prince Harry.
On Monday, Harry gave a speech where he said he is "grateful" to have Meghan by his side as he begins his new role.
“I am incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in.”
Role of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador includes helping young peoples' voices be heard as the prince continues his grandmother's service to the people of Commonwealth. Noting he will continue to be inspired by the Queen as "the ultimate source of guidance on all things Commonwealth."
“On the day of her 21st birthday, the then-Princess Elizabeth gave an extraordinary radio address from Cape Town. With an eye on the future, and an already unflinching sense of duty, she made a commitment,” he told delegates at the opening of the 11th Commonwealth Youth Forum in London. “She said that whether her life be long or short, it would be dedicated to the service of the people of the Commonwealth.”
Harry went on to say, “You care. You want your nations to be cleaner, your planet to be greener, your friends and neighbors to be treated fairly and with respect, no matter their ethnicity, their religion, or their status,” he said. “You are optimistic. The complicated challenges we face – climate change, inequality, conflict – they do not discourage you. Rather, they inspire you to persevere and effect change.”
