Prince William, Duke of Cambridge took a little time off from daddy duties to visit Buckingham Palace with his brother Prince Harry to launch The Queen's Young Leaders programme on 9 July 2014. The occasion saw a number of lucky youths who got to meet and speak to the princes.

"This programme is called the Queen's Young Leaders for a reason. You're a leader now, not in the future. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise," William said in his opening speech.

The launched centred on social media, so naturally, a selfie was inevitable. The princes also participated in a Google Hangout next to British entrepreneur Jamal Edwards and Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney, speaking to five youth leaders from the UK, India, Jamaica, South Africa, and Australia.

"When I was young, there wasn't really anything like this, so it's great that something like The Queen's Young Leaders is about now," Jamal said.

The brothers looked like they had a ball of a time, especially Harry, who said "The stuff that you guys do is inspirational, so don't stop now. It's the beginning." As you command, princes.

The search is on for exceptional people in Commonwealth nations between the ages of eighteen to twenty-nine who, if selected, will receive awards and further support for their work. You can apply for the award yourself or nominate someone for the award.
