They said the Commonwealth must "acknowledge its past wrongs", even if it is uncomfortable.

The couple were speaking to young leaders of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, with Harry saying everyone needs to do their part to recognise institutional and systemic racism. 

"Certainly when you look across the Commonwealth, there's no-way we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past, and I think so many people have done such an incredible job to right those wrongs.

"I think we all acknowledge here there's so much more still to do. It's not going to be easy, and in some cases its not going to be comfortable."
