2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Meghan, Duchess of Sussex:
“Thank you so much. Can I first just say I’m so, so grateful to be back. Last year was my first time coming and it was such a meaningful night so I really appreciate being invited to be included again tonight. Before the reception, Harry and I were talking to all of the nominees and in speaking to one of them he said, you know after I’d mentioned him ‘gosh the impact you guys make is huge. It’s so much bigger than you’ and he said you know it’s not about us it’s the ripple effect. And true to form with the modesty that you find in all of the nominees, yes it is about the ripple effect, but what I reminded him, and I feel is true for all the nominees is, you don’t have that ripple effect unless each of you is brave enough to make that first wave. And it is so important to remember that because what you’re doing is inspiring so many people. So, thank you from all of us for being that inspiration. And congratulations to all the nominees. The winner for celebrating excellence is Nathan Forster.”

“So, I’m afraid it’s no longer just about you. It’s also about those around you, your friends and family, those in your local community and the community at large. These endeavours are hopefully not only reminding you that you are valued members of society, but also the very best kind of role models that we could ask for. So, from now on when you’re getting involved with an endeavour we’re going to ask you to think about how you will use your experience to impact those around you, be it in your own home or the world at large.”

In a short speech beforehand, Meghan highlighted the impact of the achivements of nominees, saying they had been brave enough “to make that first wave” with ripple effects across many areas.
For his part, Prince Harry underlined that the endeavours of nominees transcended them to influence others around them, saying “these endeavours are hopefully not only reminding you that you are valued members of society, but also the very best kind of role models that we could ask for.”
Harry presented an award to Shaun Pascoe, a former RAF officer who created a sailing charity after being diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder)
