Before becoming Duchess of Sussex Meghan did work together with charities already. In January 2017 Meghan visited Delhi and Mumbai, India of which new footage was now released. She visited the country to promote gender equality and girls’ education, which wasn’t one of the standarts back then.
More in 110 million teenage girls in India – the second most populated country in the world – are at risk of dropping out of school. The Duchess was filmed planting and watering flowers, and painting signs with female students, who got new facilities installed by the charity the Duchess was working with. On her return she wrote an article for Time Magazine about her trip.
She spoke then about how a lack of proper sanitation in schools was adversely affecting girls when they start their periods. Meghan called it a “direct barrier” to girls’ education based on the “shame surrounding menstruation” in much of the developing world.
It was on that visit when Meghan was introduced to the Myna Mahila Foundation which works with women and girls in Mumbai’s urban slums. It offers the women stable employment and breaks taboos about menstrual hygiene by provide basic sanitary products. Myna Mahila was one of the seven charities Harry and Meghan nominated for donations at the time of their wedding last year.
Today, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex shared news about the arrival of Baby Sussex, which should be any day now (at the end of this month – beginning of May). Harry and Meghan said they wanted to keep their plans ‘private’.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially at home in Windsor.
Previously Meghan and Harry resided in Nottingham Cottage, which is located within the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Their country home is designed to be a breath of fresh air. After more than six months of work, Frogmore Cottage — some 25 miles west of London — has been meticulously renovated from a staff residence once set up as multiple apartments into a single-family home of about five bedrooms.
Complete with a new green-energy center, springy “floating floor” (perfect for yoga) and nontoxic paint, the cottage marries English and California style. “They’ll enjoy it much more in Windsor,” says a family friend.
The construction of Frogmore House began in 1680 by King Charles II, on land bought by Henry VIII during the 16th century.
The cottage got its name from the surrounding marshlands, which attracts frogs. The gorgeous property is very close to the banks of the River Thames.
Yesterday, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex paid their respect to the victims of the terrorist attack that happened at two mosques in Christchurch. They made an unannounced visit to the New Zealand High Commission in London. Meghan & Harry have laid flowers in remembrance of the victims and signed a book of condolence on behalf of the royals “Our deepest condolences. We are with you.”.
Harry and Meghan attended the christening of Zara Tindall’s daughter, Lena, at St. Nicholas Church in Cherrington, Gloucestershire. The Duke of Sussex was named a godfather for the baby and other royal guests also attended the event.
The Duchess of Sussex was wearing a lovely brown vintage Dior coat, with a navy beret by Stephen Jones and a black bag by Victoria Beckham.
The Duchess of Sussex took part in a panel discussion on International Women’s Day, hosted by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which she was named Vice President last Friday morning.
The Duchess replied to various questions, such as if she’ll raise her child to be a feminst, where she replied to:
It’s funny, I’d actually been joking these past few weeks I’d seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism’. I loved that.
Also among the topics Meghan discussed with the panel include how men can be supportive allies and feminists, and how this helps gender equality.
I think in terms of masculinity, you understand your strength includes knowing your vulnerabilities and your sense of self and security. Your confidence comes in knowing that a woman by your side, not behind you, is actually something you shouldn’t be threatened about.
The Duchess also answered the question, why she doesn’t use or owns any private social media accounts, such as Twitter and Instagram, anymore. She replied:
Equally, that’s just my own personal preference because I think positive or negative, it can all sort of just feel like noise to a certain extent these days, as opposed to getting muddled with that to focus on the real cause. So for me, I think the idea of making the word feminism trendy, that doesn’t make any sense to me personally, right? This is something that is going to be part of the conversation forever. Hashtags are not enough. We have a responsibility as well, that if you’re part of social media and engaging in that way, we’re not just giving people more things to chat about but actually something to do. It’s our responsibility to make a choice on what we click on, we make a choice of what we read, we make a choice of we engage in, that’s our personal decision to not be there for negativity, to be more positive and action based. And that for me that’s a tricky one because I’m not part of any of that.
WE was founded in 1995 by then-12-year-old Craig Kielburger after he read a newspaper story about Iqbal Masih, a former slave who was murdered after speaking out against the horrors of child labour. The tale struck a nerve, and Craig knew he had to do something to help free other children embroiled in child labour. Along with his older brother, Marc Kielburger, he started WE Charity.
More than 20 years later, WE Charity has expanded beyond the issue of child labour to include a sustainable model of international development, called WE Villages, that works to alleviate the root causes of poverty in nine countries around the world.
