Meghan delivered a poignant speech
The former Suits actress took to the stage to deliver a poignant speech touching on the power of young leaders around the globe.
She told delegates: “You are the future… you are the present. You are the ones driving the positive and necessary change needed across the globe now, in this very moment.”
Touching on her “pinch me moment”, Meghan spoke about the first time she was asked to be a counsellor for One Young World in 2014.

“And there I was, the girl from Suits. I was surrounded by world leaders, humanitarians, prime ministers and activists that I had such a deep and long-standing respect and admiration for. And I was allowed in, to pull up a seat at the table.
“I was so overwhelmed by this experience, I think, I think I even saved my little paper place-marker with my name on it.“
On Thursday, Harry and Meghan will return to London for the annual WellChild awards where Harry, as patron, will deliver a speech.
