When 6vt met Prince Harry and Meghan: Meet the teens from Edinburgh charity who popped along to Holyrood Palace

WHEN Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were in Edinburgh for their first joint Scottish visit, a royal reception was held at Holyrood Palace.

Guests at the event included six teens – Celine Pelz, Roseanna Campbell, Jack Cook, Ciara MacDonald, Kieran Maloney and Darren Telford

The group are part of the charity 6vt, an organisation which supports young people in Edinburgh.

A special day in Edinburgh… young people from our Cashback to the Future arts programme are on a massive high after performing three songs for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the First Minister. A talented and hard-working group, they did us proud and were perfect ambassadors for Scotland's Year of Young People 2018! #YoYP2018Here's a short video showing this morning's prep and build-up – thanks so much to 6VT Edinburgh City Youth Cafe for their partnership in Cashback Creative Evenings and all their help over the last few days!

Four of the young people performed the songs ‘Say Something’ and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’. Jack and Ciara sang, while Darren and Kieran played guitar.

The teens chatted to the Sunday Post about how it felt to meet the royals and why word needs to be spread about the work of 6vt.

For Ciara, who dreams of being a singer, performing in front of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was a dream come true.

She said: “I was really over the moon when I found out I was going to the palace.

“I just thought it was incredible that I would be able to perform for Prince Harry and Meghan.

“And I was just excited that it could have been my claim to fame.”

After the performance, Ciara said Meghan was full of praise for the group.

“She was like ‘I know how you feel performing in front of people, and the fact that you can do that with such confidence is absolutely amazing.'”

As well as meeting the royals, some of the group also spent time with Nicola Sturgeon, who Jack and Roseanna said was ‘lovely, warm and friendly.’

Roseanna said: “She [Nicola] came up to me and was asking about 6vt and what the charity does, and then after I’d talked to Prince Harry she came over again to ask if I felt I’d managed to get the message across about the charity well as I’d done with her.

“She was really supportive, really engaged.”

She added: “It was really nice chatting to Harry and Meghan, expressing our views on charity work, and telling them about our youth cafe.

“But then, obviously, it’s not a youth cafe to us, it’s a family to all of us here.”

6VT Edinburgh City Youth Café is a city-wide charitable youth work service.

The organisation has worked with tens of thousands of young people over the years, mainly aged 15-21-years old, providing a wide range of personal support and development activities.

As well as universal youth work services it delivers specialist supports to young victims of crime, young homeless and young parents and their children.
