Prince William and Prince Harry posed for their first selfie together on Wednesday as they launched the Queen”s new initiative.

The two brothers took part in a Google Hangout as part of the launch which aims to encourage young leaders across the Commonwealth to never “give up”.


The Queen”s Young Leaders Programme was launched at Buckingham Palace and entrepreuneur Jamal Edwards caught the two for a picture.

Jamal hosted the hangout – the first live question and answer session to take place in the Palace – and the photograph”s caption showed his disbelief.

“Had to get that Royal Pic w/ Prince William & Prince Harry loool. Today has been so surreal. I made history with hosting the 1st ever social hub in the palace. The Queens Young Leaders is an incredible movement that is going to change young peoples lives all around the world. It could be you!!! #SelfBelief #TheSearchIsOn“, it read.

In the web chat with young adults from countries across the Commonwealth, William told those who had tuned in: “All I would say is believe in yourself – you”ve got a lot more to say then you think”

He added: “There are plenty people out there who have an open mind and will listen and care.
