The Duke and Duchess of Sussex @sussexroyal, President and Vice-President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT), recently hosted a conversation with young leaders from the QCT network, who each work with the Trust across its three pillars of champion, fund and connect. The group met at Buckingham Palace to discuss mental health, equal opportunities for all, and the importance of supporting youth leadership to help address global challenges and drive positive change around the world. The Duke and Duchess were joined by QCT Advisor @kenny.imafidon, Esther Marshall, founder of @standtallwomen and author of the @officialsophieandbunny book series; @izzy.obeng, founder of @foundervine; Victor Ugo, founder of @mentallyawareng and Kiran Kaur & Amna Akhtar of @heygirldreamer.

During the film, that was released today, Meghan says, “Let’s not wait until there’s a problem and try to fix it, let’s try to prevent the problem from happening to begin with.” Harry adds: “There is no way the older generation are going to be able to change their mindset unless it’s their children who are influencing the change.”

The group went on to discuss the significance of QCT’s global network. Esther Marshall of sTandTall and Sophie Says observed how the ‘powerful’ network of QCT has helped her combat loneliness as a founder and feel connected to a movement of driving change. 

The duchess nodded in agreement when Izzy Obeng explained how ‘founding something for the first time’ is ‘really tough’. 

She added: ‘The opportunity to share those struggles and learn how people do it globally, not just in your local context, is really powerful.’

The theme of inclusive support networks emerged across the conversation as vital to supporting equal opportunities and providing effective mental health awareness and support services.

Harry and Meghan will remain president and vice president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which champions young leaders around the world.
