The Duke of Sussex jumped on a Zoom call to young people this week from his LA garden. In a video shared by StreetGames, Prince Harry spoke to three volunteers from Sport at the Heart, a sports and wellbeing charity for families in Brent, North London, to find out how they have been supporting their local communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

The trio revealed they have been delivering food packages and sports equipment to children and families. The Duke said: "You understand the importance of being outside and being able to use sport and outdoor activities, to not only keep yourselves physically fit, but mentally fit as well."

Before the end of the call, Harry said: "Stay safe, be well, you're doing such amazing work and thank you so much for being you, and just being so kind and compassionate and caring to others."

The Sussexes have long been supporters of StreetGames, an organisation founded in 2007, which harnesses the power of sport to create positive change in the lives of disadvantaged young people right across the UK. It was one of seven charities chosen to benefit from donations to mark Harry and Meghan's wedding in May 2018. The couple visited two of StreetGames' projects, Doorstep Sport and Us Girls Wales, in Cardiff in the lead-up to their nuptials.

The Duchess of Sussex also lent her support to the Hubb Community Kitchen, as they started a new service in April to supply meals to families in London during the coronavirus crisis. Deliveries of these food packages have been supported by StreetGames.
