Kensington Palace has officially announced that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex will be attending the Queen’s Young Leaders awards at Buckingham Palace next Tuesday, June 26. This event marks the second engagement with the matriarch over the span of just two weeks.
The awards will recognize a select group from the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme, an initiative that celebrates young people across the Commonwealth nations who are making strides in their communities. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and Harry, have openly spoken about their desire to work with young people in the 53 Commonwealth nations, and they’ve made good on that promise.
The Queen and the Duchess will be joined by the Duke of Sussex for the event which will be held at Buckingham Palace, London, England. The Duke himself was given the title of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by his grandmother the Queen in April. The event will see the monarch, who is head of the commonwealth, host a reception at her London home to present awards to her Young Leaders. By the way, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will work both in the UK and abroad to highlight the value of the Commonwealth, and are understood to be planning a number of foreign tours to member states. The upcoming event will hopefully give the young Duchess further opportunity to cement her close bond with the Queen.
