The Royal Family confirmed on its official Twitter account that the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will accompany the Head of the Commonwealth at the The Queen’s Young Leaders Awards.
The Queen’s programme was launched in 2014. Now it’s in its fourth and final year. It is in honour of the Queen’s service to the Commonwealth – a global network consisting of 53 countries and 2.4 billion people.
The Queen’s Young Leadersprogramme supports young people from 18 to 29 years old, from across the Commonwealth, who are their own lives and lives around them, despite the many challenged they may have faced.
It is no wonder the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are among the guests at the reception. Not long ago, The Queen named Harry a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Meghan is joining her husband in his work as youth ambassador to the Commonwealth. Prince Harry has revealed this and said she is “hugely excited” to help young people’s voices be heard.
Last week, Meghan joined the Queen in Cheshire for her first joint engagement with the monarch, but without her new husband.
The pair arrived in Runcorn after an overnight journey on the Royal Train. They were driven across the Mersey Gateway Bridge before heading to the Catalyst Museum in West Bank, Widnes.
The pair laughed and happily chatted together throughout the visit. The Queen even helped Meghan with and guided her on the royal protocol when she became unsure.
The Duchess of Sussex also had some one-on-one time with the Queen at the first day of Royal Ascot. And their bond was obvious.
In her first interview with Prince Harry, Meghan opened up for the first time about meeting Queen Elizabeth!
The 36-year-old Suits star says that she has met the Queen “a couple times.”
“It’s incredible. I think, you know, A.) To be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honor and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother, all of those layers have been so important for me, so that when I met her, I had such a deep understanding and, of course, incredible respect for being able to have that time with her, and we’ve had a really… she’s an incredible woman,” Meghan said.
