Prince Harry and Meghan managed to slip under the radar yesterday (Nov. 15), just a few miles from where Prince William and Kate were working to end cyberbullying at the BBC Broadcasting House. The Sussexes visited another BBC facility in White City, Studioworks at the Television Centre, where they held an engagement, as noticed by HELLO! UK in the Court Circular. But while the Cambridges were meeting with parents and children and publicly discussing their feelings about technology, the other half of the 'Fab Four' kept their visit private, which is why we didn't see them.
The couple stepped out for an important cause, sitting in on a Mental Health Innovation volunteers’ workshop. Prince Harry has long been an advocate for mental health issues, especially in veterans, and Meghan has joined the fold wholeheartedly and become the fourth member of the Royal Foundation. Last night, the couple met up with Prince William and Kate at a dinner celebrating their foundation at Victoria House. This follows the previous night's festivities at Buckingham Palace, where the royals made a glittering appearance at Prince Charles' 70th birthday party.
While no photos have been released from the Sussexes' visit to the BBC and the Fab Four's foundation dinner, Kensington Palace could still share a few in the following days. Though the events were private, this has been known to happen in the past. When Prince William and Kate secretly hosted the recipients of the BBC Radio One's Teen Hero awards at Kensington Palace last month, a few photos were shared by the palace two days later.
While Harry and Meghan were learning about cutting-edge mental health innovations, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge marked Anti-Bullying Week at the BBC, one of the members of the Task Force on the Prevention of Cyberbullying, which the doting dad set up after welcoming Prince George. As the duo met with parents and children, as well as the tech companies working as ambassadors to creating a safe online environment and ending trolling, cyberbullying and fake news, Prince William gave an impassioned speech.
"I convened the Taskforce because I was a new parent. And I saw that my friends and peers were seriously worried about the risks of the very powerful tools we were putting in our children’s hands. For too many families, phones and social media shattered the sanctity and protection of the home," he said.
The duke added: "Surely you can partner with parents to make the online world a safe place of discovery, friendship, and education for their children. You can work in the interest of the children and parents who use your products and still make your shareholders happy. We not only want you to succeed. We need you to."
