Dishin’ The Dirt: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Make Giving Back Look Good!


By Kelbin Ramirez

I keep trying to tell you...radio is where it’s at! Just ask the team at Reprezent 107.3 FM in London, who got a very special visit today from one of the most popular couples on the planet...Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!

In fact, hundreds of people from the Braxton neighborhood of London braved the cold just to catch a glimpse of the couple who were making their 2nd public appearance since announcing their engagement late last year. Both Harry and Meghan continue to show their commitment to “giving back” and raising awareness for the causes closest to their hearts, which is why THEY reached out to Reprezent in December asking to come by and check out the operation in person!

The station, which was founded in 2003, grew out of a south London community radio project in response to a sudden increase in violent crime in Peckham, south London. Reprezent has become such a success story that it now runs its own training & mentoring program teaching participants everything from booking guests to hosting and production! More than 4000 young people have already benefitted from the program and there are another 3000 on the waiting list and many of the students who complete the training are able to volunteer as on-air hosts & producers on the station...

Definitely sounds like a very dope organization, but I’m also probably more than a little biased!

While they didn’t get on the radio during their visit to Reprezent, Prince Harry did tell the founder, Mr. Shane Carey, that “All of this is Amazing”.

And to that I say, “Why Yes...Yes it is”!

PS...I am living for this royally down to Earth couple, like seriously they are EVERYTHING!!!

XoXo,
