Prince Harry has voiced his appreciation for Meghan Markle during his first speech as a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. The 33-year-old - who will marry the Suits actress next month - sweetly said he's "grateful" that his fiancee will be at his side in his newly-appointed role.

"I am also incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in," he said as part of his speech, reports the Daily Mail.

"In my new role, I will work to support The Queen, my father The Prince of Wales, and my brother William, all of whom know that young people are the answer to the challenges of today."

Harry's new job will involve him highlighting and supporting "the work and aspirations of young people across the Commonwealth, on both UK engagements and overseas tours to Commonwealth countries," Kensington Palace said in a statement. He will use Commonwealth platforms to address the social, economic, and environmental challenges faced by the younger generations.

The prince was joined by British Prime Minister Theresa May at the forum this morning, who said "it is important that these voices are heard".
