Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may not have any public engagements this week, but that doesn't mean they aren't getting things done. It's quite the opposite, actually. On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex helped honour a brave group of veterans at a panel for the Endeavour Awards at Kensington Palace. The Endeavour Fund was set up in 2012 by Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton and recognises "serving and former members who have used athletics or adventure to challenge themselves as part of their recovery and rehabilitation." The award ceremony celebrates the achievements of individuals who have participated in those endeavours and will be likely held in the coming weeks.
Last year, Harry and Meghan attended the ceremony, where they not only met the nominees but Meghan also delivered a speech. "I'm truly privileged to be here," she told the crowd. According to David Wiseman, who heads the military support work done by the Royal Foundation and its Endeavour Awards, Harry "really becomes himself when he's around veterans." "He can speak openly. He understands he comes from a position of privilege, and he's not ashamed of that," David added. "He understands it's his duty to use that to have a positive impact . . . Meghan's incredibly passionate. They're an incredible match."
