Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are pictured at Star Hub, a community and leisure centre in the Tremorfa area of Cardiff, Wales, to see how sport is being used to engage young people and aid social development.<br />
<br />
During their visit, 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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
