By Amechi Idumuebor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined a conversation with young leaders from the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT) in which they discussed racism and acknowledged a need to feel “uncomfortable” while past wrongs were righted.
Harry, 35, the Queen’s grandson, said: “When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past, and – guess what – everybody benefits.”
The Commonwealth, a voluntary organisation involving 54 nations (the highest membership it has ever had), is understood to be the achievement the Queen is most proud of from her reign. She has visited every nation bar two, Cameroon and Rwanda, that joined more recently.
Harry and Meghan are president and vice president respectively of the QCT. The QCT says it does not represent the views of anyone in the Royal Family.
