Many virtual ceremonies have been taking the place of the live events that would be happening during this time, one being The Diana Award for 2020 which takes place July 1st at 3pm BST.

The ceremony has 184 young people, aged between nine and 25, who come from across 35 countries that will be honoured. The awards are the highest recognition that a young person can get for social action or humanitarian efforts.

Liam Payne spoke to inspirational 13-year-old Madihah Nehar ahead of her award ceremony on July 1st to congratulate her for winning the accolade.

Liam Payne told Madihah who won the award for campaigning for children’s rights, “It’s a pleasure to meet you and I want to say congratulations on your Diana Award.”

“I mean, how amazing is that? Would you like to just tell everybody who’s watching some of the amazing things that you have done for children’s rights?” Liam asked.

Madihah answered by saying, “I’m getting my award for campaigning for children’s rights and this includes the right to a voice, the right to an education, and the right to environment.”

“I do this by doing assemblies and going to other schools to make it clear to everyone that this is right and this is what children deserve,” Madihah added.

Liam had interrupted to talk about what an honour it must be to win an award with Princess Diana’s name attached to it. Liam asked, “What does it mean for you to get an award in her memory?”

The 13-year-old replied by saying, “She was an inspiration to so many people so it’s an honour for me to get an award in her memory.”

“She used her publicity from being a member of the royal family to make good in the world,” Madihah added.

“I wish I would have had that urge to do what these change-makers are doing so I’m thrilled to be able to celebrate them and spread The Diana Award’s message that young people do have the power to change the world, as far as I can,” Liam said.

This afternoon’s virtual ceremony will see a collection of celebrities honouring the young change-makers via surprise video presentations and can be viewed on The Diana Award YouTube channel.

The ceremony will be celebrating many amazing talented youths that are giving back to the community in such outstanding ways, they have all made amazing accomplishments and differences with the drive and passion they have within them.
