The Royal Foundation Meghan as Patron
Since : May 2018
Following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017, Meghan has become involved in the work of the Foundation, and became its fourth patron following her marriage, on 19 May 2018. The Royal Foundation programmes currently revolve around four main themes of work; mental health, wildlife and conservation, young people and the armed forces community.
On a trip to the Warrior Games in the USA in 2013, Prince Harry saw first-hand how the power of sport can help physically, psychologically and socially those suffering from injuries and illness. He was inspired by his visit and the Invictus Games was born. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’. It embodies the fighting spirit of wounded, injured and sick Service personnel and personifies what these tenacious men and women can achieve post injury. The Games harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand.

Meghan attended yesterday the Commonwealth Day service for first time with Queen in London. She was wearing a white coat by Amanda Wakeley accessorised with an elegant white beret by Stephen Jones. Meghan told that she’s ‘very excited’ about her wedding coming soon !
The royal bride-to-be was baptized into the Church of England in a secret ceremony on Tuesday evening with fiancé Prince Harry by her side, according to a new report in the Daily Mail by veteran royals columnist Richard Kay.
The 45-minutes service, which was also attended by her future father-in-law, Prince Charles, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was reportedly conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Royal Chapel at St. James’s Palace in London.
Meghan was confirmed immediately following her baptism, which means she is now able to join her husband-to-be at Holy Communion.
The future royal reportedly asked Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to conduct the private ceremony. The Archbishop is helping prepare her and Harry in the lead up to their wedding at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.
Meghan was brought up as an Episcopalian — which has some similarities to the Church of England — but was enrolled in a Catholic high school in Los Angeles. Shortly after her engagement in November, palace sources outlined her plans to formally be baptized into the Church of England.
Meghan about helping the foundation – ‘It’s incredibly exciting ! For me it’s been a very long time working on college driven works specifically with women and girl rights. But to see the model of the foundation, it’s very interesting because i work with larger NGOs and really small grass roots organizations where you can see a higher level of impact in my opinion because there’s a lot less part tape. What i noticed from a global perspective,’cause i wasn’t here obviously when it was happening, was the power of combining all this smaller organizations who have the same issue but need that extra push and support under this umbrella you’re able to achieve that and the impact they (Harry, Kate & William) all made with heads together is tremendous. So i’m very excited to be able to work on initiatives similarly and that can have that same sort of impact globally.’
Interviewer – ‘Meghan you championed the empowerment’s of women and young girls and promoting their self worth. How do you hope to continue that work with the royal foundation?’ Meghan – ‘Knowing that i just been here for 3 months and in that amount of time, for me it’s very important to hit the ground running and even if you’re doing it quietly behind the scenes, which is what i found my energy on thus far. It’s meeting with the right people, meeting with the right organizations behind the scenes quietly. Learning as much as i can that i can maximize the opportunity we have here to really make an impact. I think what’s interesting it’s that i hear a lot of people saying ‘by speaking about girls empowerment, finding and knowing their worth, women empowerment as well’. You often hear people say ‘you’re helping women find their voices!’ and i fundamentally disagree with that because women don’t need to find a voice: they have a voice. They need to feel empower to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen. And i think right now in the climate we’re seeing so many campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp. There’s no better time than to really continue to shine on light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that. I mean it make such a tremendous difference. I guess we wait a couple months and then we can hit the ground running. We can multitask, that’s fine!’
Yesterday, Meghan was at the first annual Royal Foundation Forum in London with the other royal family members: Harry, Kate & William.
