The Duchess of Sussex started the round table discussion by thanking the young leaders for letting Prince Harry 'crash the party'

The couple are meeting with youth ambassadors from One Young World (OYW) to discuss new initiatives to improve gender equality and female empowerment.

Meghan started the discussion by thanking guests for letting Prince Harry "crash the party".

While seated next to her husband she told the group: "I think we're all aware that One Young World has been very important to me for several years and now being vice president of QCT (Queen's Commonwealth Trust), it just felt like the perfect medley.

"What you're all capable of doing independently is incredible but then when you work collectively, our intention today is to try to create somewhat of a task force to see what we can do within our communities and then use that knowledge to apply it to whatever is happening in all these other communities.

"In terms of gender equality, which is something I have championed for a long time, I think that conversation can't happen without men being a part of it.

"So for this reason it made complete sense to let him (Harry) join today. So thank you for letting him crash the party."

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, was originally meant to attend by herself, but Prince Harry, 35, appeared to step in and a show a united front as tensions among the royal family are reportedly bubbling.

It comes a day after The Sun revealed how Meghan snubbed Prince Charles – who walked her down the aisle on her magical wedding day.
BUBBLING TENSIONS

The Prince of Wales was hoping his daughter-in-law would be the star guest at his exhibition opening, but Meghan reportedly pulled out in the final hour.

It is not clear why Meghan pulled out of supporting her father-in-law, who was instrumental in bringing her into the royal fold, but some have speculated it happened after the Sussexes had learned of Prince Charles' taking part a documentary would give an insight into the workings of the Duchy of Cornwall.

The first instalment of Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall took viewers through Duke of Cornwall's £1billion estate, which covers more than 130,000 acres across 23 counties, aired last night on ITV.

Viewers showered the royal in praise after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's controversial interviews with Tom Bradby that aired on Sunday night.

On ITV's Harry ' Meghan: An African Journey, the Duchess revealed she been facing difficulties over the past year as a member of the royal family.

The programme was filmed on the Sussexes' recent successful overseas tour where the public got their first proper glimpse at baby Archie after he was born in May.

Prince Harry also revealed he and his brother Prince William were "on different paths" and have "good days" and "bad days" in their relationship.

Meghan also admitted how she felt vulnerable and spoke of the difficulty of being under the microscope of interest with British tabloids.

She said: "It's not enough to just survive something, that's not the point of life. You have got to thrive."

Prince Harry also admitted he felt he was under pressure to protect his family for being scrutinised in the media.
HIGH PRESSURE

After the documentary aired, a royal source told the BBC that the Duke of Cambridge was "worried" about his brother and that there was a view that Harry and Meghan were "in a fragile place".

A pal of the royal couple spoke to CNN this week saying Prince Harry and Meghan have "single-handedly modernised" the British monarchy.

The insider spoke to CNN amid the fallout from the explosive ITV documentary and said the palace is "full of people afraid of and inexperienced at how to best help and harness and deploy the value of the royal couple."

This morning, the young leaders shared their personal experiences of the challenges they have faced with inequality.

They also discussed international inclusion projects, led by the OYW representatives, in countries including South Africa, Nigeria, Iraq, Malawi and Bangladesh.

The palace said: "The discussion will cover how these young leaders are driving meaningful change for empowering women.

'They will share achievements and best practices that have helped empower communities to overcome complex challenges and significant obstacles."

Meghan is the vice president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust and is a massive supporter of One Young World.
