MANCHESTER, ENGLAND: Being anywhere around celebrities, especially anyone Royal comes at a price. This is true even if you are a young leader and delegate who hopes to get access to a global platform and "confront the biggest challenges that are facing humanity." Such is the case for humanitarian delegates of the One Young World summit too.

It has been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, and Meghan will be attending the One Young World summit scheduled to be held in Manchester between 5-8 September 2022. Turns out, the participants will have to fork out £1,000 (approx $1,182) per day if they wish to share a conference center with the couple.

Aiming to serve as a breeding ground of ideas, bringing together some of the "brightest young leaders from every country and sector" and work towards confronting the "biggest challenges facing humanity," the One Young World summit will be joined by Harry and Meghan in their humanitarian efforts.

However, this ticket of £1,000 (approx $1,182) does not include the cost of traveling or even accommodation in Manchester. Dishing out such an exorbitant sum is certainly ironic especially when the summit also seeks to discuss "economic insecurity" as a cause of concern among young leaders. Additionally, first-time attendees who hope to snag a ticket, as well as private accommodation, will have to cough out £4,210 (approx $4,980).

The Duke and Duchess have expressed their keenness to be part of the three-day event. The Duchess of Sussex said that her response to the proposal of being the Counsellor at One Young World was "a resounding Yes!" She added that "One Young World invites young adults from all over the world who are actively working to transform the socio-political landscape by being the greater good."

The duo has expressed their solidarity and support. Meghan, a One Young World Ambassador since 2014, spoke highly of the young delegates for their stand against issues pertaining to the violation of human rights, environmental crises, gender equality, discrimination, and injustice. She will be delivering the keynote speech at this year’s opening ceremony at Bridgewater Hall. This will be followed by her participating in a panel discussion on equality alongside her husband.

According to the organizers, Harry and Meghan will not be paid for their presence. Moreover, their website mentions the provision of availing scholarships as these "provide the opportunity for exceptional young people to attend on the merit of their proven leadership and ability to create change in their home country." Around 30 percent of the attendees this year will be availing of the scholarship.
