Monday's Commonwealth Day service marked what was presumed to be Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's last public engagement as working royals—but the Sussexes haven't transitioned out of their senior positions in the royal family just yet.
Today, the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, an organization which helps young people in the 54 Commonwealth countries enact change through financial and networking support, released a video of Harry and Meghan in conversation with youth leaders at Buckingham Palace. The clip above shows the royal couple seated on a couch, chatting about the importance of the QCT and youth leadership with the advocates and social entrepreneurs.
"There is no way that the older generation are going to be able to change their mindset unless it's their children who are influencing the change," Prince Harry can be heard saying at one point in the clip.
Meghan also noted the importance of preventing issues before they start. "Let's not wait until there's a problem, and try to fix it let's try to prevent the problem from happening to begin with," the Duchess said.
And in addition to the official footage, the Sussexes also shared a behind-the-scenes outtake from the conversation on their Instagram account.
When Harry and Meghan officially enter their new arrangement as non-working royals at the end of the month, they will reportedly retain their positions as President and Vice President of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust. Meghan only received her title of VP last year.
"In this new role, the Duchess will highlight the Trust's partnerships with young people across the Commonwealth, and in particular its work supporting women and girls," a statement from the Trust at the time explained.
