Sharjah 24 - Reuters: Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan spoke about race and equal rights to young leaders on Wednesday on a video call with the Queen's Commonwealth Trust.
"Certainly when you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past," Harry told young QCT leaders on the call from the pair's Los Angeles home.

"I think so many people have done such an amazing, incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right those wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge on here, there is so much more still to do," he added.

The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary political association mostly composed of territories of the former British Empire, headed by Harry's grandmother, Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

The QCT, where Harry and Meghan serve as president and vice-president, describes itself as "growing network of young changemakers across the Commonwealth".

Although Prince Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior working royals earlier this year, they have kept their roles with QCT, who have been hosting weekly calls on the "various forms of injustice on the experiences of young people today" in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
