During her morning discussion with both students and educators,she said,
“When a woman is empowered, it changes absolutely everything in the community.”
She also announced four new scholarships to help students study in different Commonwealth countries. She said,
“Sometimes access to education can seem so big, you wonder where to even begin? So you begin with one student, one school, you simply begin, and that’s when we see change.”
And the Duchess intends to be a major part of that change. She also visited the charity, Action Aid, to speak to people working to protect young girls in South Africa.
It is fair to say that, Duchess Meghan Markle did sparkle, on this royal tour of South Africa. She is determined to be the voice for women and children and equality for all. In many ways her unfiltered interaction with the people of South Africa bears an uncanny resemblance to that of Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana.
