Prince Harry Gets Shut Down By Meghan Markle In Public

Prince Harry left his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador after their decision to step down as senior working royals, but the Sussexes retained their posts as president and vice-president of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently involved in a couple of movement to address the Black Lives Matter issues. The Duchess of Sussex has notably advised people to have conversations about the issue instead of keeping quiet.

In a recent outplay, Meghan Markle was almost too fast to rebuke Prince Harry in their recent video call during Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, when the Duke of Sussex said he was “ageing”.

Prince Harry said: “I’m ageing, right, I’m 35 already”. Meghan Markle, 38, didn’t like the statement and weighed in immediately, and said: “That’s not ageing!”.

Harry replied: “It is ageing compared to these guys” referring to the other participants on the call as they discuss Black Lives Matter related issues.

The couple joined Chrisann Jarrett, co-founder of We Belong, which is led by young people who migrated to the UK and Alicia Wallace, director of Equality Bahamas.

Joining the couple on the July 1 chat were Mike Omoniyi, founder of The Common Sense Network and Abdullahi Alim, who leads the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers.

Prince Harry noted: “When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past.

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

“It’s not going to be easy and in some cases, it’s not going to be comfortable, but it needs to be done, because, guess what, everybody benefits.”

Meghan Markle spoke of how equality was a fundamental human right, and how it’s important to push through the uncomfortable phase, which is what the world needs now to move on.

“We’re going to have to be a little uncomfortable right now because it’s only in pushing through that discomfort that we get to the other side of this and find the place where a high tide raises all ships,” she said.

“Equality does not put anyone on the back foot, it puts us all on the same footing – which is a fundamental human right.”

The Duke, however, talked about the issue of unconscious bias while sharing his own perspective.

“We can’t deny or ignore the fact that all of us have been educated to see the world differently. However, once you start to realise that there is that bias there, then you need to acknowledge it, you need to do the work to become more aware … so that you can help stand up for something that is so wrong and should not be acceptable in our society today,” he said.

Prince Harry further told those taking part: “This change is needed and it’s coming. The optimism and the hope that we get is from listening and speaking to people like you. Because there is no turning back now, everything is coming to ahead. Solutions exist and change is happening far quicker than it ever has done before.”
