In July 2014 Their Royal Highnesses the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry launched the search for the first 60 Queen’s Young Leaders live from Buckingham Palace. Those exceptional young people have now been found and on Monday 22nd June, the first ever Queen’s Young Leaders will receive their Award from Her Majesty The Queen. Their Royal Highnesses have recorded a special video message to celebrate and congratulate the 2015 Young Leaders; who will be in the UK for a full week undertaking unique activities that will enable them to further develop their leadership skills.
The Royal Family carry out important duties overseas on behalf of the British Government. They also visit Commonwealth Realms and countries to support The Queen in her role as Head of State. Also, many engagements such as state visits and receptions are held in the UK to deepen and broaden connections with The Commonwealth and other countries.
