In the clip, Prince Harry discusses memories from last year’s OnSide Youth Zones Awards, where he not only met with young participants, but he also presented the highly coveted “OnSide Health and Wellbeing Award.”
“I remember meeting so many incredible people and hearing your stories, stories of strength, of determination, of resilience, but ultimately of courage,” he says in the video. “And as I said to all of you that night and I’ll repeat it again—hats off to every single one of you for surviving but also for thriving.”
Prince Harry continues, “These stories and these challenges, these daily challenges that you guys are coming up against are unbelievable, and so many people will never understand. But you guys have the strength to pull through, and you have the support of the OnSide community, the OnSide family to help you through that process.”
The Duke of Sussex concludes with some positive words of wisdom, adding, “I can only imagine the last six weeks has made it even more challenging. This too shall pass, and before you know it, you will be back together again. Probably in a Youth Zone, you know, running around having the best time ever.”
We’d do anything to be a fly on the wall during that much-needed reunion.
