Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stand up for women around the world.
To celebrate Women’s History Month in March, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex actively participated in various campaign events through their non-profit organization, Archewell, which works to create a global community driven by impact.
On March 16, for example, Meghan, 39, sent personalized notes of encouragement to several women who received support from Smart jobs. The UK-based charity (which the first Suits star sponsors) helps unemployed women in need with clothing and job interview training.
Prince Harry sent his own personal notes to members of The Mission’s Veteran Women Leadership Program Continues on Tuesday. According to a press release from Archewell, Harry, 36, who is also a veteran and is serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan, was grateful for the opportunity to reach out to these women.
Additionally, Harry and Meghan also came to speak with a group of storytellers from MomsRising earlier this week. The The multicultural organization aims to address the most critical issues faced by women, mothers and families by educating the public and mobilizing massive grassroots actions.
“The meeting with Prince Harry and Meghan was a huge boost for MomsRising members, some of whom are struggling without jobs, childcare, paid leave, medical care and other essentials during the pandemic,” said Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner , CEO and CEO of MomsRising, said in a statement. “The Duke and Duchess were kind, compassionate and incredibly supportive, both on a personal and political level that would help put their lives back on track.”
“The Duchess also reminded us that, especially in moments of doubt, we must seize the opportunity to see ourselves through the eyes of our children,” the statement continued. “Because to our children, we are superheroes. That really resonated with a lot of us.”
