Prince Harry, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince William, Duke of Sussex, Join Forces to Honour the Winners of Princess Diana Award

Prince Harry, Duke of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Sussex, met
winners of the Legacy Award from the Diana Award.
Both united
to honour the winners of an award named in memory of their mother.

The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex met
winners of The Legacy Award from The Diana Award ahead of a glittering ceremony
at the late princess’s ancestral home Althorp next week.

William hosted 10 young recipients at
Kensington Palace, while Harry met nine of the other 10 via video call
from California.

We understand
the royal brothers were both keen to be involved, joining forces for the first
time since they unveiled a statue of Diana, Princess of Wales, on July 1. They
were last seen together as the bronze figure was revealed to the world in the
Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace on what would have been their mother’s 60th
birthday.

A
source said: “Both brothers really wanted to take part and both were keen
that it happened on the same day. It’s a special award in memory of their
mother and that still unites them despite everything that has happened.”

Taking place every two years, The Legacy
Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person can receive for their
social action or humanitarian work. Princes William and Harry presented the
inaugural Legacy Awards at St James’ Palace in 2017.

This year’s recipients come from across the
UK, China, Colombia, Germany, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and the USA and
were chosen from a pool of Diana Award winners from 2020 and 2021.

Each will now have access to a unique
two-year development programme to help enhance their skills in leadership,
community development, social entrepreneurship and technology for good.

The Diana Award’s chief executive Tessy Ojo
said: “The pandemic continues to disrupt lives and exacerbate social
inequalities. But out of the darkness of Covid, young people are standing up to
shape change in their communities across the world. Their compassion,
determination and agency to make a positive change today and in the years ahead
is immense. They couldn’t be a more fitting tribute and lasting legacy to
Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to
change the world.”

Alex Kalomparis, SVP of Public Affairs at
awards sponsor Gilead Sciences, said: “These young people represent the
next generation of change-makers and innovators across the globe and it is
their stories we should listen and learn from.”
