Meghan Markle Royal Engagement

The future Royal made her mark in the family as she sat alongside Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate at a charity event last night.

It was the first time that the four had been seen together in a royal engagement, and Meghan used the opportunity to voice her opinions on current issues surrounding women's rights.

"Women don’t need to find a voice, they have a voice, they need to feel empowered to use it and people need to be encouraged to listen," she said.

The American beauty elaborated: "I think right now in the climate where we are seeing so many campaigns like Me Too and Time’s Up, there is no better time than to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them...and that makes such a tremendous difference."

Duchess Kate, who is heavily pregnant with baby number three, added that they were committed to all that they were working on. She said: "Since our roles are lifetime roles, our commitment to the work we do through The Foundation is genuinely long-term. The work we do can, and should, have a long-lasting resonance. For this reason, we are able to support causes which we're passionate about for decades into the future. Rather than just for a few months or years."
