Prince Harry calls transgender children’s charity Mermaids ‘amazing’ at Buckingham Palace event

Prince Harry has recognised the work of a transgender children’s charity at a Buckingham Palace reception.

Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids, met members of the royal family at an event to recognise her work on mental health with trans young people.

The royal event was held to “to acknowledge the contribution of those working in the mental health sector in the U.K.”

Susie Green says she told Prince Harry of the work Mermaids does to advocates for and support transgender children and their families.

So impressed was the fifth in line to the throne that he called the charity’s work “amazing” during their exchange, she told PinkNews.

The event was hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who have led the Heads Together campaign to tackle stigma around mental health.

It was also the Duchess of Cambridge’s first public appearance since the announcement of her third pregnancy.

Formed in 1995 as a support group, Mermaids works to raise awareness about gender issues amongst professionals and the general public, campaigning for the recognition of gender dysphoria in young people and lobbying for improvements in professional services.
