“I'm honoured to be a veteran, and honoured to be part of that community... [as a veteran] you represent a certain set of values, and I believe that those values will be with you for the rest of your life and you want to do everything you can to give back.”⁣ ⁣ The Duke of Sussex joins CEO Richard Sharp on the @declassnetwork podcast to talk about being a Greyshirt, a veteran and how the training, skills and values never leave you once you’ve worn that uniform, and how especially valuable they are during this difficult time.⁣ [listen through link in bio] ⁣ #TeamRubiconUK #DukeOfSussex #veteran #veterans #volunteer #humanitarian #military #ArmedForces #StayHomeSaveLives #ProtectTheNHS #thankyouNHS #NHSHeroes #covid19 #everybodybenefits #Greyshirt

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.
