The Queen’s Young Leaders Awards was launched in 2014 in a bid to find incredible young people who are dedicated to making a lasting change in their community and beyond. The programme also gives out grants that help provide youngsters to learn new skills, enter employment and have a voice in their communities.

This is not the first official engagement Meghan has undertaken with the Queen since she entered the royal family. The Duchess has joined the monarch for a number of occasions, including for the Trooping The Colour Parade and for Royal Ascot.

Meghan also attended her first solo engagement with the Queen earlier this month when the two travelled to Cheshire together – and looked to have a lovely time.
