*Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to speak out against racial injustice amid ongoing Black Lives Matter protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd. The couple recently joined a video conversation about the fight for equality with young leaders from across the world linked to the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
The QCT has held weekly discussions about fairness, justice and equality, and on Wednesday, July 1, according to People.com, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the video conference where challenging unconscious bias was a key part of the conversation. Harry, 35, serves as president of the QCT while Meghan, 38, is vice-president — positions they have continued since their departure from their frontline royal roles.
In the video conversation below, Meghan and Harry spoke with Chrisann Jarrett, QCT Trustee and co-founder and co-CEO of We Belong; Alicia Wallace, director of Equality Bahamas; Mike Omoniyi, founder and CEO of The Common Sense Network; and Abdullahi Alim who leads the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers network of emerging young leaders in Africa and the Middle East.
Harry said that the Black Lives Matter movement has allowed for people to recognize “the wrong” in the world, adding that ” this is the moment when people are starting to be listened to.”
Meghan continued on to say that the couple would do “everything from our end,” to help the young people — with Harry stressing his age adding that it was in the hands of the younger generation now. “I’m aging – I’m 35,” he said.
“That’s not aging,” his wife interjected.
