music entrepreneur Jamal Edwards following his death on Sunday.

Sharing a photo of the pair from 2013 on Clarence House’s social media accounts on Monday, Prince

His work in music but also as an ambassador for a new generation, including his
work for The Prince’s Trust, were an inspiration to so many.”

by Charles, and was appointed an MBE for services to music in 2014. The music
entrepreneur and YouTube star founded SBTV in 2006, an online urban music
platform that helped launch the careers of artists like Dave, Skepta and Ed
Sheeran.
