The roundtable, which is hosted by Baroness Scotland, 63, will allow the prince to hear directly from youth ministers on the key issues affecting the Commonwealth’s youth population in their countries.

It takes place ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in 2020, with the summit scheduled to be held in Rwanda.

Representatives at the roundtable will include ministers responsible for youth engagement from across the Commonwealth. 

The event will also provide an opportunity for the duke to share the learnings, ideas and ambitions of the young people he has met from across the network of nations during his first year as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

The Commonwealth represents a global network of 53 countries and almost 2.4 billion people, a third of the world’s population – of whom 60 percent are under 30 years old.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth, with old ties and new links enabling cooperation towards social, political and economic development, which is both inclusive and sustainable.

Yesterday Prince Harry enjoyed a day out with his family – wife Meghan and son Archie – as he took part in a charity polo match, held at Billingbear Polo Club in Wokingham, Surrey.

Though it was his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, who was victorious as his team went on to win the Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Polo Trophy.
