Meghan says she 'saw herself' in the young girls she met in Nigeria

 

Meghan Markle has said she sees herself in the young girls she met in Nigeria and she hopes to ’empower them’ for the future.

 

Speaking to People Magazine, the Duchess of Sussex, 42, said her quasi-royal tour was ‘incredibly memorable and special’ and that the ‘best souvenir’ to take with her was the memories she made.

Speaking of the young children she met on the trip, which included visits to two schools, Meghan said: ‘I saw myself in them. I see the potential in all of these young girls — and, by the way, in these young boys as well,’

She also compared it to her children Prince Archie, five, and Princess Lilibet, two.

‘It’s what we see in our own children — to give them that promise and excitement for their futures.’

Speaking to People Magazine , the Duchess of Sussex , 42, said her quasi-royal tour was ‘incredibly memorable and special’ and that the ‘best souvenir’ to take with her was the memories she made
She explained that she ‘always reflected back on herself as a young girl’ and the ‘type of inspiration’ she wanted to see in other women.

The former actress added that it was ‘really meaningful’ to travel and ‘connect to people’.

Meanwhile, Harry said that these ‘trips are about us being able to go out and go and focus on the things that mean so much to us’ adding that ‘being on the ground is what it’s all about’.

Harry, 39, added that there’s ‘only so much one can do over Zoom’.

He added that he looks forward to travelling with Archewell and other causes.

‘You know what Africa means to me over the years. It is a very, very special place, and to be able to include Nigeria now [in Invictus], I’m very happy.’

It comes as Meghan and Harry’s Archewell Foundation has now been placed ‘in good standing’ with state officials in California following days of confusion that saw the non-profit banned from raising or spending any cash.

A row erupted after the charity was declared ‘delinquent’ and ‘not in good standing’ by the Registry of Charities and Fundraisers in the US state, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex live in a £12million mansion.

The registry said Archewell had failed to submit its annual report or renewal fees, while sources close to the Sussexes insisted it was because the Attorney General’s office did not process a $200 cheque they previously thought lost in the post.

Since then, the charity says it has been in touch with California’s Department of Justice (DoJ), which operates the registry, to clear up the confusion.

The DoJ says it considers the matter closed and that, as of now, the Archewell Foundation is ‘current and in good standing’ with Californian authorities.
