Prince Harry gets Commonwealth youth ambassador appointment

Queen Elizabeth has appointed Prince Harry as a youth ambassador for the Commonwealth, a role that will see him encouraging young people to use the network of mostly former British colonies to address their challenges.The announcement of Prince Harry's new job coincides with the start of a summit of the Common-wealth Heads of Govern-ment in London this week, which will seek to boost the network at a time when Britain is negotiating its departure from the European Union.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said more than 60 per cent of the Commonwealth's 2.4 billion people were under the age of 30. "Prince Harry will work to create links between young people and youth leaders of the Commonwealth and to encourage them to use Commonwealth platforms to address the social, economic challenges of their generation," it said.
