Before sharing the videos, Clarence House wrote: "To celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, young people from @PrincesTrust and @PrincesTrustInt have been asking their career questions to Ambassadors and Alumni of the charity, who are Black British leaders in their fields."

Among the people to take part in the Q&A there was actor Idris Elba, who has often praised the Prince's Trust for the support given him at the beginning of his career.

The London-born actor received a £1,500 grant to be able to train as an actor with the National Youth Music Theatre.

Despite having reached worldwide fame, the international star works closely with the Trust as an ambassador, helping raise awareness of the challenges faced by young people.
