Meghan Markle has been making news ever since she got engaged to Prince Harry. She is not yet a part of the royal family, but she was recently voted as the most relatable female member of it. The research stated that it was because of her career as an actress and because of her role as a feminist. She really is turning out to be the princess that we all were waiting for.
So, what sets Meghan Markle apart from the rest of the royal women as well as ordinary women?
Although Ms. Markle rose to fame as an actress on the tv show Suits, she has excelled in her higher education and has a double major. She has always voiced her opinions on sexism and played a significant role in the #TimesUp and #MeToo campaigns. She recently stated that she is not ready to abandon the campaigns and all the work she’s accomplished so far, even after marriage. It is obvious that the entire world can look forward to a princess that is headstrong and determinant to make a change.
The Los Angeles-born actor has worked as an ambassador for UN Women and the charity World Vision. Markle has previously used her celebrity status to back Hillary Clinton, lament Brexit and attack Donald Trump as “misogynistic” and “divisive”, but royal protocol dictates that she will no longer be able to comment on UK or international politics.
Meghan Markle further announced very happily on a video that went viral that prince Harry is also a feminist. The royal couple have already made plans to continue their women empowerment and feminist projects. The to-be princess claims that she is glad that her fiance supports her and has similar values and beliefs.
Meghan Markle as a feminist:
“What’s interesting is that I hear a lot of people saying, when talking about girls’ empowerment and women as well, you’ll often hear people saying, ‘You’re helping them find their voices’, I fundamentally disagree with that. Women don’t need to find their voice. They need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen.”
“There is no better time to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered, and people really helping to support them – men included. I mean, it makes such a tremendous difference. So … I guess we wait a couple of months and we can hit the ground running.”
