Harry and Meghan visit Afghan refugees at Task Force Liberty




The couple spoke with women newly arrived at the Liberty Task Force at the McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Joint Base, New Jersey, which is home to more than 10,000 Afghan refugees, a spokesman for them said. The royal family asked to spend time with young children who were in daily school and stopped at a children’s classroom learning conversational English.

Harry and Meghan spoke to the children, many of them practicing their English saying phrases like, “Nice to meet you,” the spokesman said. The couple asked staff about common terms in Dari, Persian dialects that were spoken Afghanistan – and left all interactions with children and adults saying “Tashakur” or “thank you”.

Teachers had been leading the song “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” the spokesman added. The Duke and Duchess “happily” directed the children to sing the song and said it is their son’s favorite, Archie.

They thanked the teachers for their effort and reminded them to take care of themselves and their own mental health.
