Duchess of Sussex pays tribute to George Floyd in commencement speech

In a virtual commencement speech to the students at her former L.A. Catholic high school Immaculate Heart, the Duchess of Sussex asked the young students to use their voices to "lead with love, lead with compassion". Meghan called George Floyd's death "absolutely devastating" and shared her own experience of the 1992 race riots.

"George Floyd's life mattered, and Breonna Taylor's life mattered, and Philando Castile's life mattered, and Tamir Rice's life mattered and so did so many other people whose names we know and whose names we do not know", so Meghan.
