According to 'New Idea', she said, "You guys all remind me so much of myself when I was growing up. I went to an all-girls school which was incredibly diverse as well. I think being around such empowered young women, it becomes something that you all just grasp onto to understand your world,” she added.
“It makes me so emotional. You’re doing really, really good work and I’m so happy that we’re here. We give you our full support".
Prince Harry also showed his admiration for the students, many of whom were part of the 'In League in Harmony Youth Advocate' program. The program looks to unite and inspire young people to be advocates for cohesion and inclusion in their communities. Prince Harry said, "Men can help as well by getting involved, we have to".
