The royal couple who recently returned to the UK has been performing the last rounds of their duties as senior members of the Royal family. 

The meeting was centered around the themes of mental health, equal opportunities, and the importance of youth leadership. It had Queen's Commonwealth Trust Advisor, Kenny Imafidon, in attendance.

Founder of Stand Tall and author, Esther Marshall, was also in attendance. They were joined by Izzy Obeng, Founder of Foundervine, Kiran Kaur, and Amna Khatar of Hey Girl Dreamer and founder of the Mentally Aware Nigeria Initiative, Victor Ugo.

Meghan opened the conversation by asking the group how they felt supported by QCT. Kenny Imafidon gave a response, saying:

"...a lot of us when we go out there to get grants, there's no real engagement and the QCT is very different in that."

Esther Marshall also spoke about how the influence of QCT had helped her overcome loneliness as a founder, and also made her feel included in a movement that drives change.

Izzy Obeng also explained that it was a powerful opportunity to be able to share the struggles of people, not just in a local context but globally.

Sharing his experience, Victor Ugo explained that he was inspired to set up his organization, Mentally Aware Nigeria Initiative because he wanted to recreate the community he had for others.

Amna Akhtar also shared the motivation behind her organization, Hey Girl Dreamer. She said the need to have people who believed in her led her to overcome every obstacle.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

"...let's not wait until there's a problem and try and fix it, let's try and stop the problem from happening to begin with."

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
