  • Today The Duke of Sussex helped celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Commonwealth by attending a Garden Party at Marlborough House in his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. 
The Duke of Sussex has carried out engagements across the Commonwealth throughout his working life, becoming a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador in April 2018. The title helps recognise the 60 percent of the Commonwealth population who are under 30.

The Duke of Sussex met winners of the Innovation for Sustainable Development Awards.

These young people are taking action where they see a need for progress – by developing solutions to overcome challenges in areas including human rights, women’s empowerment & climate change.

One of the recipients was Leilua Lino from Samoa, a victim of sexual violence, who created a Peace Garden designed to support others who have experienced similar trauma.

The ‘Commonwealth of Nations’ brings together 53 countries to support, share and collaborate with each other on issues ranging from women’s rights to trade agreements.

  • This morning The Duke of Sussex attended the launch of @_madebysport at The Black Prince Trust community hub in Lambeth.

Made in Sport is a new campaign that will bring together around 60 charities already working in sports to raise funds and empower grassroots clubs in the most disadvantaged communities across the UK. It will ensure that clubs like this in Lambeth will stay open, and provide a space for all young people to develop a passion for sport and build skills that will help them through life.

The Duke met British Boxers @anthony_joshua and @nicolaadamsobe who were taking young people through a boxing training session – and who have also lent their support to the new campaign.

The Duke of Sussex has long championed the transformative effect sport can have on people’s lives.

  • The Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso of Lesotho meet @sentebale Youth Advocates before a @Sentebale concert at Hampton Court Palace last night.
