by - 2 mins

Prince Harry delivered an emotional speech last night addressing his decision to step down from royal duties. During a dinner for supporters of Sentebale in London, Prince Harry gave a speech explaining what’s been going on in his life over the past few weeks. He said he was doing that so people could hear it from him.

Recall that Queen Elizabeth released a couple of statements after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were stepping back as “senior” members of the royal family. In her most recent statement, she explained that Harry and his family will always be loved by members of her family. She added that they have her full support and that she was proud of them.

Buckingham Palace then released a basic outline for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s future. Under this new agreement, the couple will cease using their HRH titles and step back from some positions, including Prince Harry’s military appointments. However, they “will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations,” the Palace’s statement noted. That includes Sentebale, the charity Harry co-founded with Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso in 2006, which supports children affected by HIV/AIDS in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi.

At last night’s event, Prince Harry made it clear that he will continue to work with Sentebale. He gave a speech, which touched not just on Sentebale’s mission, but also on his new place within the royal family.
