The organization described the toolkit as a ‘roadmap for policymakers and practitioners building a digital world that supports children and enables them to thrive, online and beyond.’

By sharing the news online, 5Rights tweeted: ‘We are delighted that Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will be joining us at the launch of the Child Online Safety Toolkit on May 16 to discuss how we explore the online world can make it safer and friendlier, especially for children. ‘

5Rights Foundation is a British charity founded by Baroness Beeban Kidron, to help children and young people participate in the digital world ‘creatively, with knowledge and fear’.

It is far from the first time the Duke has expressed his concerns about the digital world.

The Royal, who shares two children with Meghan Markle, will speak to juvenile lawyers from around the world to discuss what is needed to make online child safety a reality.

Last year, Prince Harry was one of 15 commissioners and three co-chairs who conducted a six-month investigation into the digital ‘avalanche of misinformation’ on behalf of the Aspen Institute based in Washington DC.

The report calls for ‘increasing transparency and disclosure of social media’, a ‘new proposal on immunity on social media platforms’ and ‘ideas for need to prevent the collapse of local journalism and the erosion of trusted media’.

Other ‘solutions’ provided in the report include the emphasis on ‘municipal methods of improving civil dialogue and resistance to information imbalances’; and ‘accountability for’ superspreaders ‘of online lies’.

The duke’s pressure to combat fake news may raise eyebrows in some places, given that he and his wife Meghan Markle were accused of making several dubious statements in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March this year.

Meanwhile, he claimed in an online panel called ‘The Internet Lie Machine’ that he and his wife have been the target of trolls online, even though they do not have individual social media accounts.

He said: ‘I’m not on social media, we are not on social media, and until things change that will remain the same.’

He said social media sites should take responsibility and not spread ‘hate and lies’ after Facebook clockblower Frances Haugen revealed a tranche of documents claiming the tech giant placed profits above user safety.

The duke and duchess joined the New York-based Harry Walker Agency last year, representing the Obamas and the Clintons.

PR expert Mark Borkowski told The Sun that the couple will ‘clean up’. They plan to be available for talks on social issues, including racial justice, gender equality, the environment and mental health, according to the LA Times.

‘I’m surprised they did not do this before. It will be one of the big income generators for them. ‘The speaker’s circuit is a natural safe space for them to plunder,’ he added.
