The Duke of Sussex is a military veteran, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist who has dedicated his life’s work to advancing causes not only that he is passionate about, but that are connected to the world’s top priorities. He is Founder of The Invictus Games, a renowned international platform for wounded, injured, and sick service personnel and veterans to achieve through sport and competition as part of their rehabilitation, and he is also Founder of Travalyst, a non-profit alliance of leading companies and organizations working together to transform the future of sustainable travel and tourism. Prince Harry co-founded the children’s health and wellbeing charity Sentebale with his dear friend Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, in memory and continuation of their mothers’ legacy combatting the HIV crisis, and he serves as President of African Parks, a non-governmental organization that manages national parks and preserved ecosystems across Africa in partnership with local communities and governments. In recent years, he was named Chief Impact Officer at BetterUp, a world-class coaching and mental fitness platform used in over 90 countries and by hundreds of companies, and he served on the Aspen Institute Commission on Information Disorder, which brought together leaders spanning government, industry, media, and civil society to inform solutions to today’s mis- and disinformation crisis.

 

The Duchess of Sussex is a feminist, bestselling author, and longtime advocate for racial and gender justice who has worked throughout her life to promote stronger communities and more equitable outcomes for families. She is a dedicated champion of policies that uphold and protect human rights, such as access to paid leave, and has worked with leaders across the public and private sector to advance women’s economic independence. She has sought to bring a comprehensive approach to women’s empowerment, working with organizations like Smart Works to connect women with the tools and support they need—including clothing, mentorship, and interview coaching—to secure employment, and in her experience as a humanitarian ambassador, which took her to countries like Rwanda and India, she tackled issues ranging from clean water and food insecurity to girls’ education and period poverty.  She previously served as a United Nations Women’s Advocate for Women’s Political Participation and Leadership, a Counsellor to One Young World, and a World Vision Global Ambassador. She is an impact-driven investor in sustainable and female-led businesses and has led a number of successful non-profit efforts focused on lifting up local communities, such as Together, Our Community Cookbook, a charitable project supporting a group of inspiring women who gathered to cook fresh food for their families and neighbors following the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

 

In addition to serving as patrons and advisors to several charities, both The Duke and Duchess grew up with service as a guiding principle of their lives, learning from early ages the importance of helping others and being a force for positive change in the world. Their fearlessness to tackle vital societal issues, and their commitment to living an authentic life, has captured the world’s attention.  In 2021, The Duke and Duchess were named to the Time 100 Most Influential People in the World.
