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.
This morning Kensington Palace announced on International Women’s Day that, The Duchess of Sussex has become Vice-President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust is delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex will today become Vice-President of the Trust. The Trust, of which Her Majesty The Queen is Patron and The Duke of Sussex is President, exists to champion, fund and connect young leaders around the world who are driving positive social change, serving their communities and providing hope, work and self-employment opportunities for others.
In this new role, The Duchess will highlight the Trust’s partnerships with young people across the Commonwealth, and in particular its work supporting women and girls. In celebration of International Women’s Day and to mark this appointment, Her Royal Highness will this afternoon join a special panel discussion of female thought-leaders and activists convened by The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, to discuss a range of issues affecting women today.
Lord Geidt, Chairman, said:
“The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust is thrilled to welcome The Duchess of Sussex as its Vice-President. The support and encouragement which Her Royal Highness will bring to the young leaders with whom we work promises to have a profound effect. We are enormously grateful to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for this signal of commitment they are making to our work, helping The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust to pursue its ambitions right across the Commonwealth and beyond.”
Nicola Brentnall, Chief Executive, said:
“We are particularly delighted that the first opportunity of formally working together with Her Royal Highness comes on International Women’s Day. This squares perfectly with our focus on amplifying the work and contribution of those furthest away from power. Women across the Commonwealth and the globe often face the biggest impediments to success. So we are delighted to have our Vice-President’s support in helping others to overcome those obstacles.’

Today, July 05, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will attend the Your Commonwealth Youth Challenge reception in London’s Marlborough House, England. The engagement is one in a list of many this summer as the Duke and Duchess continue the role started by the Queen during her lifetime of service to the 53 Commonwealth nations.
The Duke of Sussex previously revealed that Meghan is “hugely excited” to be joining him in his Commonwealth duties. Hosted by Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland, today’s event will mark the culmination of the Commonwealth Secretariat’s youth leadership workshop. The workshop will bring together the newly-elected Commonwealth Youth Council Executive and leaders of the Commonwealth youth networks. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will meet those who have taken part to hear about their ideas, including individuals from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga ahead of their tour to the region this autumn.
Yesterday, June 26, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, attended the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards ceremony alongside the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. The ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace, London in the evening. The Duchess dressed for the occasion in a prim, blush-tone dress by Prada.
The Young Leaders program is a four-year project that celebrates the achievements of young persons across the United Kingdom for their service in the fields of education and mental health care. Two exceptional young Australians were recognized by Queen Elizabeth at the awards for their leadership and work within the community. Hunter Johnson, 26, of Melbourne, and Caitlin Figueiredo, 22, of Canberra, received Queen’s Young Leader Awards from Her Majesty at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Kensington Palace has officially announced that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex will be attending the Queen’s Young Leaders awards at Buckingham Palace next Tuesday, June 26. This event marks the second engagement with the matriarch over the span of just two weeks.
The awards will recognize a select group from the Queen’s Young Leaders Programme, an initiative that celebrates young people across the Commonwealth nations who are making strides in their communities. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and Harry, have openly spoken about their desire to work with young people in the 53 Commonwealth nations, and they’ve made good on that promise.
The Queen and the Duchess will be joined by the Duke of Sussex for the event which will be held at Buckingham Palace, London, England. The Duke himself was given the title of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by his grandmother the Queen in April. The event will see the monarch, who is head of the commonwealth, host a reception at her London home to present awards to her Young Leaders. By the way, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will work both in the UK and abroad to highlight the value of the Commonwealth, and are understood to be planning a number of foreign tours to member states. The upcoming event will hopefully give the young Duchess further opportunity to cement her close bond with the Queen.
