Prince Harry has said “there is no turning back now,” during a conversation about racism and the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Duke and his wife Meghan Markle joined young leaders to discuss fairness, justice and equal rights on a video call from their LA home.
The couple took part in the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust video call, which formed one of the network’s weekly sessions set up in response to the growing Black Lives Matter movement.
Last week, Harry outlined his personal commitment to tackling institutional racism and warned that past wrongs needed to be acknowledged across the Commonwealth in order to move forward, while Meghan said people needed to push through an “uncomfortable” phase towards equality.
“So many people have done such an incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right those wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge there is so much more still to do.
“It’s not going to be easy and in some cases it’s not going to be comfortable, but it needs to be done, because, guess what, everybody benefits,” he said.
