Prince Harry admits he was ‘ungrateful’ for Eton education in new candid video with Meghan | Royal | News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai in a video chat focused on the female-male education gap and how it has been worsened by the coronavirus pandemic. The trio highlighted the critical importance of having girls across the world being able to access education. 

But during the conference call, the Duke of Sussex also joked about how he did not realise when he was young how grateful he should have been for the education he received. 

After both Meghan and Harry were asked by Malala about their experience in school, the Eton alumni said: “We do take it for granted and it is a privilege but every single person, every single child, every single young person needs an education.

“To know there’s over 130 million girls out of education right now, before the pandemic, and the numbers are only going to go up, it worries

Education Department Investigates Princeton After University Admits to Systemic Racism | Education News

The White House has opened an investigation into Princeton University, accusing it of civil rights violations after its president admitted racism exists at the school.

Earlier this month, Princeton President Christopher Eisgruber published a letter to the university community in which he acknowledged that the university has and continues to be shaped by systemic racism.
