Harry and Meghan visit Afghan refugees in Task Force Liberty

The couple spoke to women who recently arrived at Task Force Liberty at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, home to more than 10,000 Afghan refugees, a spokesman for them said. The royals asked to spend time with young children who went to daily schooling and came past a classroom with children learning English for conversation.

Harry and Meghan talked to the kids, many of them practicing their English by saying phrases like, “Nice to meet you,” the spokesman said. The couple asked staff about common expressions in Dari – Persian dialects spoken in Afghanistan – and left any interaction with children and adults, saying “Tashakur” or “thank you”.

The teachers had led the song “Head, shoulders, knees and toes,” the spokesman added. The Duke and Duchess “happily” led the children in singing the song, saying it is a favorite among their son, Archie.

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

According to the U.S. Air Force Expedition Center’s website, “Task Force Liberty launched in August in line with the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Members of active duty, guard and reserve forces from across the force teamed up with external agencies to create a space that could provide support to over 10,000 Afghan guests as they immigrated to the United States. “
