THE PRINCE Harry congratulated the young British people for not only “surviving but also prospering” during the coronavirus pandemic.

Dad’s video clip was played at the OnSide Awards, while the 2019 ceremony was broadcast in full for the first time last night.
The video was posted on YouTube, with Harry saying, “Hats off for each of you to survive but also to prosper. “
Her message echoes the words of 38-year-old Meghan Markle last year when she spoke of wrestling in her new royal role.
She said in the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey: “I’ve been saying to H for a long time – that’s what I call it – it’s not enough to survive something, right?
“It is not the purpose of life. You have to flourish, you have to feel happy. “
Harry added, “Just a few months ago, we were all in London together at the OnSide Youth Center Awards and wow what an evening it was.
“I remember meeting so many incredible people and hearing your stories, stories of strength, determination, resilience. But finally courage.
“These stories and these challenges, these daily challenges that you face are incredible.
“So many people will never understand. You have the strength to succeed. “
He added about the coronavirus lockout: “I can only imagine that in the past six weeks it has made things even more difficult, but it will also pass.
“Before you know it, you will be together again, probably in a youth zone with the best time ever.” “
OnSide is a UK-based charity, supported by Prince Harry, which has 12 youth clubs in England.
The Duke has visited the various facilities at least three times, most recently in the OnSide youth zone at East London’s Barking and Dagenham in April 2019.
He also visited the Wigan youth zone in July 2016 and the Hive Wirral youth zone in January 2019 with the Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently self-isolating in Los Angeles with their one-year-old son Archie.
The couple are staying in a vast £ 14.5 million villa, close to a host of prominent names like Cameron Diaz, Katy Perry and Samuel L. Jackson.
Their home is also close to some of Meghan’s closest friends, including Serena Williams, Heather Dorak and Abigail Spencer, and her mother Doria Ragland.
Last month, Harry’s friend, Dr. Jane Goodall, said that she had been in touch with the Duke after leaving royal office to move to Canada and then to Los Angeles, and said he found that “difficult”.
Dr. Goodall told the Radio Times, “I don’t know how his career is going to go, but, yes, I have been in touch – even if I think he is finding life a bit difficult right now. “
We had a final glimpse of the family on Archie’s birthday day on May 6, where he was seen in a video reading a book from mom Meghan’s kids.

We shared how talkative Archie calls Prince Harry “Dada” as he films him with Meghan Markle at their Los Angeles home.
And royal fans have pointed out that Archie is watching the spitting image of his father in the new video.
Meanwhile, Piers Morgan says he made things “too personal” with Meghan and Harry because he admitted that he “went too far.”
