Prince Harry was handed a gift for Meghan Markle at the Diana Award National Youth Mentoring Summit Tuesday.
According to the Daily Express‘ royals correspondent Richard Palmer, Harry was given a blue-beaded bracelet adorned with a globe.
The royal gave a powerful speech during the event.
He said, “I’m struck by a few things today, most of which is the power of the invisible role model. The person who may be sitting here today that doesn’t realize that someone looks up to them, that – for that person – you inspire them to be kinder, better, greater, more successful, more impactful.”
Harry added of his newborn son Archie, “Perhaps it’s the new-found clarity I have as a father knowing that my son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behaviour, one day maybe even following in my footsteps.
“But it’s not just my role as a father that shows me that; it’s in the people I see every day that don’t realize how inspirational they are to those watching.”
The Duke of Sussex added of Diana, who would have been 58 Monday: “My mother, Princess Diana, was a role model to so many, without realizing the impact she would have on so many lives. You don’t have to be a princess or a public figure to be a role model, in fact, it’s equally valuable if you’re not because it’s more relatable.
“Being a role model and mentor can help heal the wounds of your own past and create a better future for someone else.
“As proven by today’s inspirational youth, and many of the stories we’ve heard this afternoon, the impact of a mentor has the power to make society richer, happier, kinder, and more aligned.”
