Queen Elizabeth selected her 37-year-old grandson to represent her at the General Assembly in May.
“The Lord High Commissioner [Prince William] makes opening and closing addresses to the General Assembly and reports to Her Majesty on its proceedings,” the official statement read.
It comes a week after the Queen announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will drop their “Royal Highness” titles.
The couple, who now partly live in Canada and plan to live a ‘financially independent’ life, will keep their ‘Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ titles, but “are no longer working members of the Royal Family,” the Queen said in a statement last week.
