The crowd went crazy when the Duke of Sussex, Harry, “dragged” his beautiful wife on stage:
“I’m now going to try and drag my wife on stage.”

Full Speech Prince Harry:
Climate change, is a humanitarian issue not a political one, and one where we’ve been far too slow in waking up to the issues and acting on the damaging impact our ways of living are having on the world.
We now have the facts, the science, the technology and the ability to save not just our planet, but ourselves.
I know you don’t sit back and wait for solutions, you take action and create them.
Our world’s greatest assets are threatened every day and it is SO important that we support local communities to safeguard every element of this incredible world.
Every forest, every river, every ocean, every coastline, every insect, every wild animal. Every blade of grass, every ray of sun and every rain drop is crucial to our survival.
It is all connected, we are all inter-connected. You in this room understand that and are already making this a safer, healthier and more resilient home for all of us and for generations to come.
And for that I applaud you.
If we look at the world we’re living in,
I know it can feel challenging sometimes, but your role is to shine the light.
Every day you are inundated with an overexposure of advertising and mainstream media, social media and endless comparisons, distorting the truth, and trying to manipulate the power of positive thinking. But you don’t let them sway you.
Because you don’t need to hide behind your device to share your voice. You confidently voice your opinions because you can embrace them proudly.
As my wife often reminds me with one of her favourite quotes by Martin Luther King Jr. – “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
You aren’t always going to agree,
you may find yourselves frustrated with the older generation when it seems like they don’t care.
But try to remove that judgment.
Try to remember that not everyone sees the world the way you do,
but that doesn’t mean they don’t care.
It means you have the incredible opportunity to help reshape mindsets, to empower those around you to think outside the box, and to work with you, not against you, to find solutions.
You know that if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.
So let that be your true north, let that be your call to action – to inspire those who stand for nothing, to stand for something -and to stand WITH you.
So what’s next, what’s on your to-do list starting now…
Be kind to each other
Be kind to yourselves
Have less screen time, and more face to face time
Protect wildlife and their unique habitat
Keep empathy alive
Ask your friends how they are doing and listen to the answer
Change your thoughts and change the world
Dare to be the greatest generation of all time
I am with you, we are with you!
