文字稿

英国剑桥公爵威廉王子和剑桥公爵夫人凯特王妃,哈里王子及他的未婚妻梅根·马克尔(Meghan Markle)首次为了工作在公众场合一同露面。这几位被称为王室版“披头士四人组(The Fab Four)”的年轻人讲述了慈善事业对于他们的重要性。梅根说她非常期待开始履行皇室职务。

It was the first working appearance by the foursome who will take the Royal Family forward for decades to come.

In a speech, William said their parents had set them an example of compassion and duty; their grandparents had made support for charities central to their decades of service. Their task, William said, was to engage in public life in a way which was updated and relevant for what he called "our generation."

To that end, in a discussion that followed, Meghan Markle said that she was looking forward to hitting the ground running on issues like women's rights after her wedding in May.

这是四人首次为了工作在公众场合一同露面,他们也将成为在接下来的几十年内带领英国王室家族前进的主要角色。

在一次演讲中,威廉王子说他的父母给他和弟弟哈里王子树立了一个做有爱心、有责任感的人的榜样;他们的祖父母长久以来也同样地把支持慈善机构视为其王室工作的要务。威廉王子说,他们的任务是通过最新的和被他称作“我们这一代人”密切相关的方式参与到公众事务中去。

为此,在后续的讨论中,梅根·马克尔表示她非常期待在五月份与哈里王子举行婚礼后开始投入到包括女性权利等问题的相关工作中去。
