The Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex virtually attended the annual Diana Awards to champion people aged nine to 25 who work to improve the lives of others
Prince William and Prince Harry have appeared at their first joint engagement in nearly two years.

The royal brothers did not attend the event together and instead sent in recorded videos to the annual Diana Awards yesterday.
The award ceremony, named in tribute to the pair’s late mother, Princess Diana, recognized the work of more than 180 young people from 31 countries.

It sets out to honor young people aged nine to 25 who work to improve the lives of others.

The Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex made the joint appearance, albeit virtually, despite the rift between the brothers growing since Brexit.

Prince Harry even alleged his brother physically attacked him in 2019 and claimed the Waleses encouraged him to wear a Nazi uniform to a party in 2005.

However, the pair have attended key events in recent years, including Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral and King Charles’s Coronation.

Despite attending some family functions, the last official engagement came in July 2021, when the brothers unveiled a statue of their late mother at Kensington Palace.

Prince William and Prince Harry have both thrown their support behind the Diana Award.

The Prince of Wales said he was “proud” to continue the belief shared by his mother that investing in young people “can truly change the world”.

He added: “And to everyone watching, these stories remind us why organizations like the Diana Award are so important.

“It is a reminder that when we invest in young people and provide them with the tools and opportunities to make a difference, they can truly change the world—a belief shared by my mother and one I am proud to continue in her name.”
Prince Harry, meanwhile, claimed his mother recognized the “unique ability” of young people to push for a “more inclusive and compassionate society” by challenging the status quo.

The Duke of Sussex added: “Her legacy continues to inspire and serve as an example of how to navigate the complexities of our world today.

“Sometimes it’s easy to question one’s ability to make a difference.

“No one is ever a conduit for change alone.

“Each one of us has the ability to help create a more equitable world.”
