Prince Harry shared a personal message from his and Meghan Markle's L.A. home in a new video as part of the 23rd International AIDS Conference Opening Ceremony Series.

The video, recorded outdoors, shows a glimpse of the view outside their home. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be staying at Tyler Perry's mansion while they search for their own residence in the city. Prince Harry, who co-founded the charity Sentebale, which helps children impacted by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana, spoke passionately about the idea of resilience.

"This year's theme is resilience, something all of us around the globe have understood the need for it, specifically over recent months," he said. "And for many, digging deep to find that resilience has been a challenging experience. But for those affected by HIV and AIDS, the examples of resilience within oneself and within the community has been felt and fostered for decades."

"At Sentebale, we see the resilience of young people every single day, which is why I've been inspired each day since founding the non-profit organization with Prince Seeiso in 2006," he added. "As you're about to see, these young people are willing to speak out against injustice, be role models to their peers, support HIV prevention and challenge limiting systems in the hope of a more inclusive and accepting environment for all."

Since arriving in Los Angeles, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been supporting various local charities, having made food deliveries for those facing food insecurity in L.A., and volunteering at a café and bakery.

They also joined young Black leaders and activists to discuss equal justice in response to the Black Lives Matter movement in a Zoom conversation.

"We can’t deny or ignore the fact that all of us have been educated to see the world differently," Prince Harry said during the call. "However, once you start to realize that there is that bias there, then you need to acknowledge it, you need to do the work to become more aware so that you can help stand up for something that is so wrong and should not be acceptable in our society today.”
