On their second day in Fiji, the Duke & Duchess of Sussex started their day by visiting the University of the South Pacific in Suva. They saw a cultural performance made by students on the effects of climate change and met students outside the university. Meghan delivered an inspiring short speech where she talked about how she was able to attend University thanks to scholarships and through working alongside studying at University. She also announced 2 new grants will be awarded to the University of Fiji and the South Pacific of Suva to run workshops which empower their female staff.
Then, Meghan & Harry were seperated to do solo engagements. The Duchess attended a morning tea at the British High Commissioner’s Residence to showcased women’s organisations which operate throughout Fiji and hear more about a UN Women’s project, ‘Markets for Change’. She was also shown by a chef how to make lote, made from smoked breadfruit and served either as a breakfast or a dessert.
Meghan travelled to Suva Market to meet UN Women’s involved in the project ‘Markets for Change’. Her visit was shorter than announced due to security reasons as thousands of people came to see the Duchess.
