Prince Harry has just received a major new job title.

The Queen has named Prince Harry as a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

In this new role, Harry will highlight and support the work and aspirations of young people across the Commonwealth, on both UK engagements and overseas tours to Commonwealth countries.

Prince Harry spoke at the opening of the Commonwealth Youth Forum this week, where he said he and his bride-to-be Meghan were excited to take on the challenge.

“In my new role, I will work to support The Queen, my father The Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today,” Prince Harry said.

“I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in,” he added.

The royal couple will visit Australia later this year, after tying the knot on May 19th.
