Prince Harry joins Virtual Ceremony to Congratulate the winners of The 2020 Diana Awards

On what would have been Princess Diana's 59th birthday, Prince Harry gave a speech to the 2020 award winners of the Diana Award

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.

Here is more of what Harry said to the young award winners:

"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."

Established by Harry and Prince William in memory of their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.
