This is Harry‘s last official engagement before taking a break from royal duties to enjoy time with wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) and their child, Archie, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

During the event, he took to the stage to deliver a speech to the crowd full of young people at the awards ceremony, which recognizes those who have helped their local communities and have overcome challenges.

During the speech, he gave a shout-out to young climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

“OnSide is an organization that’s still young, but as everybody here knows, you should never underestimate the power and influence of youth. When Greta started her climate change protest she was just 15 years old—one voice, with just one placard, sitting on her own outside the Swedish parliament. Many people – actually, I should say, many adults – dismissed her. Yet today, millions upon millions of young people have joined her fight. She may have been just one person at the beginning, but she had a belief, a mission, and a desire to do something not just for herself but for everyone, and now—the whole world is paying attention,” he said.

“Whatever your dream—every country, every community, every school, every friendship group, every family needs their own Greta—someone who can lead the way, someone who is prepared to stand up for what they believe, and show how much they care for the people in their lives and the community around them,” he went on to say.

He also posed with award recipients backstage at the event after presenting the Health and Wellbeing Award onstage.
