Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on equality - ‘change is coming’ but it may be ‘uncomfortable’.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry warned 'times are changing in a Zoom call with joined young leaders.

The pair discussed fairness, justice and equal rights, with Harry telling them: "There is no turning back now, everything is coming to a head."

Prince Harry and Meghan both took part in the Queen's Commonwealth Trust video call which formed one of the network's weekly sessions set up in response to the growing Black Lives Matter movement.

The duke, who last week outlined his personal commitment to tackling institutional racism, warned that past wrongs needed to be acknowledged across the Commonwealth in order to move forward, while Meghan said people needed to push through an "uncomfortable" phase towards equality.

The couple, who were speaking from LA, joined Chrisann Jarrett, co-founder of We Belong, which is led by young people who migrated to the UK, and Alicia Wallace, director of Equality Bahamas.

Also on the July 1 chat were Mike Omoniyi, founder of The Common Sense Network and Abdullahi Alim, who leads the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers.

The duke told them: "When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past.

"So many people have done such an incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right those wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge there is so much more still to do.

"It's not going to be easy and in some cases it's not going to be comfortable, but it needs to be done, because, guess what, everybody benefits."

Former Suits star Meghan spoke of how equality was a fundamental human right.
