The Duke of Sussex claimed that young people can be a force for change.

The Duke of Sussex has called on young people to become active and help tackle the biggest issues facing the world today.

Harry made the impassioned plea as he hosted a garden party to bring an end to the Commonwealth Secretariat’s week-long Youth Leadership workshop.

Joined by wife Meghan, the duke claimed that young people can be a force for change, citing the way smartphone technology has changed healthcare and the way plastic pollution and efforts to curb it have shot to the top of the green agenda.
