Prince Harry took a break from the royal norm today and opened the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup tournament in London.
In addition to meeting with young people who love cricket (hey, that could be Archie one day!) and chatting with schoolchildren, the 34-year-old Duke of Sussex marked the occasion with a speech.
And since we weren’t there to see it (sigh), we were happy to find that the royal family shared the full speech transcription online.
“Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, fans here and around the world, welcome to the Oval for the opening game of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019,” Prince Harry began.
