Prince Harry and Ms. Markle to Visit Cardiff




Thursday 18th January 2018

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will visit Cardiff on Thursday, 18th January, for a day showcasing the rich culture and heritage of Wales, and to learn more about some of the organisations working in communities across the country.

They will first visit Cardiff Castle, an iconic building with a history dating back 2,000 years, in the heart of the capital. The castle’s architecturally rich Gothic Revival interiors will be put to use as the backdrop for a Welsh Culture festival. During their tour, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will hear performances from musicians and poets, meet leading sportsmen and women, and see how organisations are working to promote Welsh language and cultural identity.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will then travel on to Star Hub, a community and leisure centre in the Tremorfa area of the city to see how sport is being used to engage young people and aid social development. There they will see how StreetGames, a delivery partner of Sport Wales and the Welsh Government, and an organisation with which Prince Harry has worked previously, is helping to make sport accessible to all young people, regardless of their social circumstances. It does this by supporting and establishing over 1,000 locally trusted organisations around the UK to deliver doorstep sport. Doorstep sport sessions operate in disadvantaged communities and include positive activities and sport for young people when they want it, where they want it and how they want it.

During their visit, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will meet young people taking part in various doorstep sessions, including street dance and table tennis. They will also meet young women who are taking part in the UsGirls project, set up with the aim of driving a step change in female sport participation across the UK and addressing the barriers that prevent many girls and young women from taking part in sport and physical activity. To date it has mobilised 5,000 girls and young women across Wales.
