Since Harry and Meghan got married, and Meghan officially became a member of the British royal family, she has been given more and more responsibilities.
It seems that Meghan has proved her worth with the Queen. So, now she is taking over one of The Queen’s duties. Meghan along with Harry will welcome those in the Queen’s Young Leaders programme to Buckingham Palace this summer. The Duchess will continue the role that Queen Elizabeth has started during her lifetime of service to the Commonwealth nations.
It seems that Meghan and the Queen bonded really well because Meghan is taking a job which is said to be a job that has been close to Her Majesty’s heart.
Prince Harry became a patron of the Queen’s Young Leaders. He took the role earlier in 2018. The aim of the programme is to recognize the work of exceptional young people and the work that they do within the Commonwealth nations.
Taking on his new job in April 2018, Prince Harry said: “In my new role I will work to support The Queen, my father The Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today.”
Prince Harry also hinted that his wife would have a role in the Commonwealth Youth organization: “I am also 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.”
Taking a role in a program is one thing. But to take over one of the Queen’s duties, it is definitely an honor. It is a symbol of how much the Queen appreciates and trust the new duchess.
Meghan and the Queen have had their first engagement together recently. Apparently, they had a good time considering the photographs of them giggling like real friends.
