Prince Harry told recipients of the Diana Award his mother would be proud. This surprise message of congratulation to those who worked on pandemic issues was sent by Prince Harry.
In a video message posted on Monday to the charity’s Instagram account, he wrote: “Thank you for inspiring us with your brilliance and your determination. Your compassion is inspiring me.”
He stated that “there is a great need for young leaders and there is no better time to be one.”
Prince Harry said: “The Covid-19 crises exposed severe inequities and imbalances all around the globe. We witnessed the unintended consequences of this pandemic in communities of color, women, underserved communities, and less wealthy countries.
He mentioned his brother Prince William in his brief speech.
“My brother and I recognize what would have been my mum’s 60th Birthday and she would be so proud of all of you for living your authentic lives with purpose and compassion for others.
“Our mother believed young people had the ability to change the world. Your strength was something she believed in because she witnessed it every day.
The Diana Award, the only charity established in her memory, is a charity that focuses on young people and social change. In 1997, Diana was killed in a Paris car accident.
On Thursday, Harry and William will reunite to unveil a memorial for their mother.
They commissioned the statue from Ian Rank-Broadley, a British sculptor — whose portrait features the Queen on all British coins. This was to allow “all those who visit Kensington Palace to recall and celebrate her life” and legacy. It will be placed in the Sunken Garden of the palace, where Diana lived.
Harry and Meghan, the Duchess, welcomed their second child Lilibet Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor earlier this month. According to the couple, Lili was named after Queen Elizabeth, her great-grandmother. Diana is her middle name.
Baby Lili is Archie Harrison’s sister.
