A StreetGames project in Wales has received a surprise royal assent after it was visited by Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle.

The couple attended table tennis and street dance workshops, led by young people as part of StreetGames’ UsGirls and Doorstep Sport initiatives, at the Star Hub Centre in Cardiff.

The visit was part of the couple’s first official visit to Wales, during which they toured projects which look to change the lives and opportunities of young people in some of the country’s most disadvantaged areas.

Paul Roberts, StreetGames’ Head of Programmes in Wales, said: “In Wales, one in three children grow up in poverty.

“The work that StreetGames does, with the help of our volunteers, ensures that those children aren’t denied the opportunity to grow up experiencing firsthand the benefits of sport.”

Working together with Sport Wales, the Welsh government and 300 community organisations, StreetGames has so far reached 40,000 disadvantaged young people through its sports initiatives.

Since founding the Invictus Games in 2014, Prince Harry has become an active and passionate advocate of “sports for good”.

He has also championed access to sport for children and young people to give them confidence and valuable life skills.

In 2004, he spent part of his gap year training as an assistant development officer with the Rugby Football Union (RFU).
