During his short speech Harry drew on the comments recently made by Meghan. Harry expressed his sorrow that he, and adults before him, had not done enough to make the world a better place for the youth of today.
"Institutional racism has no place in our societies, yet it is still endemic,"
"Unconscious bias must be acknowledged without blame to create a better world for all of you."
"You are all doing such incredible work and at a time of great uncertainty, you have found the power and inspiration inside of you to make a positive mark on the world. And I love that The Diana Award is able to help you do it."
"I know that my mother has been an inspiration to many of you, and I can assure you she would have been fighting your corner. Like many of you she didn’t take the easy route or the popular one or the comfortable one. But she stood for something and she stood up for people who needed it,"
"Right now, we're seeing situations around the world where division, isolation and anger are dominating as pain and trauma come to the surface. But I see the greatest hope in people like you, and I'm confident about the world's future and its ability to heal because it is in your hands."

I know we should not encourage the tabloids to hunt out pictures of Meghan, Harry and Archie, but it was lovely to see a recent pic. of the "Adorable Archie" just ahead of his second birthday on May 6th 2021. And look at Meghan's bump. Baby No.2 is growing nicely and it appears that it won't be long before Archie's sister arrives. Was Archie off to a play date? (And in case anyone wants to bitch about the fact that Meghan is not wearing head-to-toe black, in mourning for Prince Phillip, Princess Anne was out and about this week wearing a very non-black hue called Red - just getting this in first before the trolls start) Photo as published by the New York Post
