“Exactly what Meghan said,” Harry chimed in. 

“What these kids are doing, the coaches are the main thing, because they’ve had this quite unique experience. I say unique, but it’s not as unique as you would think because so many communities have been through very similar traumatic experiences.

“But they’ve now come into a place like this, into this charity to be able to not only share their experiences but to help the younger generation. We’re talking about a whole generation of kids that have basically had no role models at all, and that generation are now coming in and saying, ‘you know what, you didn’t have those opportunities, we’re now going to give you that opportunity’.”
