Britain's Prince Harry at a youth forum on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's duties with the Commonwealth will include overseas travels and meeting with young people from all over the world to hear their ideas on how to reach larger audiences and make their voices heard.

The prince's first engagements as Ambassador will begin today (April 16), when he will attend the Youth Round Table and opening session of the Youth Forum.

Harry will work to create links between young people and youth leaders of the Commonwealth and to encourage them to use Commonwealth platforms to address the social, economic, and environmental challenges of their generation, Buckingham Palace confirmed.

The declaration harmonizes with the beginning of a summit of the Commonwealth Heads of Government in London this week, which will look to support the system when Britain is arranging its takeoff from the European Union.

The prince added, "I'm also incredibly grateful that the woman that I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, in which she too is hugely excited to take part in". The Queen is the head of the Commonwealth, but questions have been raised over whether her son and heir, Prince Charles, should succeed her.

"After the Queen, possibly it's an opportunity to state "well really the Commonwealth ought to choose who its own leader is on a rotational premise", Jeremy Corbyn, pioneer of the restriction Labor Party said. Foreign minister Boris Johnson said it was "a matter for the 53 to decide". In his opening speech, Harry praised the queen's role in the development of the Commonwealth, calling her "the ultimate source of guidance in all things Commonwealth", citing a speech she made in 1947.

"Every one of us here today can be thankful that it is a long life the Queen is as yet getting a charge out of", he said.
