Prince William met the winners of the Diana Award at Kensington Palace while his brother Harry resorted to a live video meeting to chat with the award recipients from across the world. This award, established in 2017, was to celebrate the life of Diana on her 20th death anniversary. Diana, Princess of Wales, lost her life in a road accident, and both William and Harry were school kids at the time.

There will be an awards ceremony on December 9. The venue would be Althorp House, and Diana's brother Earl Spencer would host. The frequency of these legacy awards is two years.

William and Harry presented the inaugural ones at St James's Palace in 2017. A panel of independent judges, chaired by Earl Spencer, selected this year's recipients. They hailed from different parts of the world, including Germany and the United States.

Recognizing youngsters is the motto of the Diana Award

Since the death of Princess Diana in 1997, her sons Princes William and Harry extended support to the Diana Award. It is a charity legacy to the belief of Princess Diana that youngsters have the power to change their world. Tessy Ojo, chief executive of The Diana Award, explained that the Coronavirus pandemic disrupted lives and gave rise to social inequalities. In June, Prince Harry arrived in London to attend the unveiling of a statue of Princess Diana.

The Diana Award's Future Forward plan

In the foreword for the Diana Award's Future Forward plan, the Duke of Cambridge mentioned the lives of many youths affected by the coronavirus pandemic. He dwelt on issues like breakage in education, disruption in work opportunities, and strained social relationships. The Duke of Cambridge spoke about the young people he met over the last year.

In his words, they are passionate about helping their communities recover and rebuild. They are keen to wipe out social inequality and injustice. An organization like the Diana Award is nurturing the talent of these youngsters to help them change the world.
