BBC – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have spoken to young leaders about equal rights – with Harry saying the wrongs of the past need to be acknowledged.

Prince Harry and Meghan dialled into the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust weekly video call, which focused on responding to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Harry, president of the QCT, told them: “There is no turning back now, everything is coming to a head.”

His wife Meghan added that equality is a fundamental human right.

The duchess, vice president of QCT, said on the call: “We’re going to have to be a little uncomfortable right now, because it’s only in pushing through that discomfort that we get to the other side of this and find the place where a high tide raises all ships.

“Equality does not put anyone on the back foot, it puts us all on the same footing – which is a fundamental human right.”

The couple, speaking from their Los Angeles home, said they had discussed the issues many times in the past weeks.
