The event, which honors change-makers from the 53 nations in the Commonwealth, took place on Tuesday, June 26.2018, and it was hosted by the 92-year-old head of the Royal Family.

Pictures of the ceremony found their way online through Kensington Palace's official Twitter page, where fans and followers were able to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex meeting and greeting some of the guests.

The Queen's Leaders Awards were particularly special for Prince Harry because he was there as the organization's Youth Ambassador, a nomination received prior to his wedding to Markle on May 19, 2018

The large group of emerging influencers, all aged 18 to 29, saw Harry step up and deliver a speech. The Prince let the young leaders know that they would have his full support, as well as Markle's, and that they would always be available to hear their ideas.

Plus, Harry claimed that he looked forward to working with the group in order to build platforms to allow the members to strengthen their collaboration, as well as form bonds and partnerships.

During the speech, the Duchess of Sussex seemed to be very proud of her husband and was seen smiling throughout the day as she sparkled in a beautiful Prada dress.

Having returned from a visit to Lesotho, Africa, for his charity Sentebale, Prince Harry is expected to visit some of the Commonwealth countries this fall, such as Australia, Tonga, New Zealand and Fiji.

His brother, Prince William, has also been busy traveling. He recently became the first member of the royal family to set foot in Israel as part of an official visit, where he hopes to rekindle old friendships and build new ones, mainly with Crown Prince Hussein.
