The Duke Of Sussex Expresses Gratitude To 'Inspiring' Youngsters For 'Protecting' Mum Diana's Legacy

The Duke of Sussex engaged in lighthearted banter with recipients of the Diana Legacy Award during a late-night call from his Montecito residence.

This occurred just hours after his brother, the Prince of Wales, made a personal appearance at the event held at the Science Museum in London.

Prince Harry, aged 39, was introduced to the 20 young awardees, with Sophie Pender, founder of the 93% Club, expressing sentiments of missing his presence in London.

“I’m sorry I am not there, I wish I could be there with you guys,” Harry told the group.

Wearing a dark blazer over a blue open-collared shirt, the father-of-two asked the recipients their reasons and inspirations behind the work that they do.

And in a light-hearted moment he joked with the winners about not getting into “too much trouble if you’re continuing to go on [and celebrate]”.

The Duke thanked the youngsters “for inspiring so many others and at the same time protecting my mother’s legacy, I really appreciate that”.

He added: “And Tessy [Ojo, chief executive of the Diana Award], again, well done on this fantastic group of individuals.”

Harry’s half-hour conversation with the awardees occurred after his brother, Prince William, entertained the audience by performing to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck,” a song he disclosed is a favorite of his son, Prince George.

Prince Harry congratulated the winners

In his speech, William said: “This evening’s Legacy Award is particularly special as it marks the 25th anniversary year of The Diana Award, a charity set up to reflect my mother’s belief that young people can change the world

“I know that she would have been honoured to see a charity in her name doing such inspirational work to uplift young people from all corners of the globe.”

He added: “She taught me that everyone has the potential to give something back; that everyone in need deserves a supporting hand in life. 

“That legacy is something that both Catherine and I have sought to focus on through our work, as have the 50,000 young people who have received a Diana Award over the past 25 years.

“I am so proud to see this belief of my mother’s manifested in the amazing young people receiving the Legacy Award tonight.”

The Diana Award was established to champion the Princess’s conviction that young individuals possess the capability to positively transform the world.

Just prior to William addressing the audience at the Diana Award ceremony, the Duchess of Sussex made a comeback on Instagram to unveil a fresh business endeavor. The social media preview, shared on the newly created American Riviera Orchard Instagram account on Thursday, showcased a vintage-style video of Meghan cooking and arranging white hydrangeas and roses.
