Prince Harry meets budding world leaders during Chatham House visit

The prince chatted to young researchers from across the globe.

Prince Harry has spoken of the importance of nurturing the world’s future leaders, as he opened a £3 million centre aimed at supporting the next generation of statesmen and women.

Harry’s comments came as he visited the foreign affairs think tank Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and met some of those hoping to be at the forefront of decision making.

The prince chatted to young researchers from across the globe in the new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Floor which is home to the Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs.

Harry told the group: “Anyone can be a fantastic leader and the key is identifying those people as early as possible, incubating them and support them all the way to the top.”

The academy aims to help a new generation of potential leaders to develop skills to deal with major policy challenges and critical issues facing the world.

The Queen, who launched the academy in 2014, has been patron of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, based in central London, since 1952.
