PRINCE HARRY has hosted a video call with three young volunteers from Sport at the Heart (SATH), sharing a rare glimpse of his LA home that he shares with wife Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry hosted a Zoom call with the young volunteers, to hear about how they are supporting local communities during the coronavirus pandemic. The Duke spoke to the trio from his new LA home, where he recently moved to with his wife Meghan Markle and one-year-old son baby Archie. The two-minute long video, shared by the sports charity Street Games, shows Harry having a candid chat to the volunteers about how they are supporting others during the current crisis.
The three young people on the Zoom call were 25-year-old Matthew Burrage, 19-year-old Falhat Husein and 25-year-old Koran Goldstone, who all volunteer for SATH.
Prince Harry started the call by asking how they were, and inquiring what work they had undertaken during the coroanvirus crisis.
They told the Duke they had been helping my delivering food packages and sports equipment to those in need in the London Borough of Brent, where the charity is based.
Matthew said: “We have been delivering food packages around the community and lots of sports equipment as well for those that are quite vulnerable and in need.

“I feel very grateful to have the opportunity to be able to get out there.”
They all agreed that helping others has a beneficial impact on their own mental health and gives them a sense of accomplishment.
Koran said: “Even the freedom to go out and do it. I’m thankful for it and to just see how grateful they are satisfies me.
“It’s cool to see when I knock the door or ring the bell everyone from the household comes down to have a little chit chat which is great.”

The Duke also discussed the importance of going outside and exercising during the lockdown, to help keep check on both your mental and physical health.
Falhat said she had been trying to stay active by playing football outside and spending time in the garden.
Prince Harry ended the call by urging them to “stay safe and well” and thanking the three volunteers for the work they have been doing.
He said: “You’re doing such amazing work and thank you so much for being you, and for being so kind and compassionate and caring to others.”

SATH is part of the StreetGames network and engages in Fit and Fed, an initiative supported by Prince Harry which works to combat food poverty during the school holidays.
The royal has previously visited the Roundwood Youth Centre in Brent, where SATH operates.
StreetGames’ chief executive Mark Lawrie said “The work that Sport in the Heart is doing to support young people and their families is inspirational, and more important than ever at a time when communities are struggling in lockdown.
“It’s wonderful that this work is being recognised by the duke, his words of encouragement really meant a lot to these young people.
“The organisations within the StreetGames network are doing an amazing job supporting their neighbourhoods in challenging times, and we’re proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with them as they work to make young peoples’ lives healthier, safer and more successful.”
