Prince Harry, Meghan Markle visit Afghan refugees

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made time for Afghan refugee children during their Veterans Day visit to New Jersey on Thursday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex specifically asked to spend time with the school-age kids who are part of the over 10,000 Afghan refugees — known as “guests” — living at Task Force Liberty at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

Prince Harry, 37, and Markle, 40, popped into classrooms to singalong to “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” which is one of the songs the children are using to learn English. The couple shared that the song was one of their 2-year-old son, Archie’s, favorites as well.

Markle also helped the children work on learning their colors by holding up different colored markers and having them yell out the name.

Both royals also spent time chatting one-on-one with the Afghan children who were eager to practice using their conversational English, with simple phrases like such as, “Nice to meet you.”
