Posted: Updated:

Prince Harry, Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal and Sir Richard Branson are leading the all-star cast at Wembley Arena today for the first We Day UK.

The celebrities join thousands of schoolchildren at the event organised by children's charity, Free The Children, with the aim of educating, inspiring and empowering 12,000 student leaders to take action on local and global causes they care about.

Harry told the audience it was a "privilege" to be standing in front of them and that "every one of you has done something amazing to be here."
