Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are kissing more royal family traditions goodbye. The two are scheduled to tie the knot next month.
Meghan Breaks Another Royal Tradition
Markle is on the guest list for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting’s Women’s Empowerment event set to take place Thursday night, April 19. Other major charities that encourage women’s rights and gender equality will also be in attendance.
Interestingly enough, Markle reportedly broke protocol as royal fiancés typically do not attend events centered around the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. The notion that Markle was one of the attendees with Harry reportedly confirms the royal family is fond of the former Suits actress.
Harry and Markle also met with delegates from the Commonwealth Youth Forum Wednesday, April 18. The organization just revealed Harry is its latest ambassador. While there, attendees of the summit told Markle and Harry the ins and outs the organization has experienced, from wins to obstacles.
Despite the organization expressing its challenges, Harry is said to have remained positive and told the youth they have made great strides to cause change in various important issues, from inequality to climate control. He went on to gush about Markle who will come alongside him in helping the organization bring change.
Harry And Meghan Making A Difference Together
“I am incredibly grateful that the woman I am about to marry, Meghan, will be joining me in this work, of which she too is hugely excited to take part in,” said Harry.
Markle also congratulated the youth during the forum.
“You’re so energized,” said the future Princess of the United Kingdom. “You’ve got this umbrella to hold you together. It’s incredible. So stay in touch, maximize it.”
Standing With The LGBT Community
It’s been a busy week for Markle and Prince Harry as they also met with a group of LGBT protestors. The future husband and wife vowed that rights of the LGBT community would be a priority for them during their public service.
“Miss Markle said, and these were her exact words, that this is a basic human rights issue, not one about sexuality,” said Jacob Thomas of Australia.
Thomas took home a Queen’s Young Leaders award for playing a part in lowering the suicide rate of the LGBTI community in his country. He also commended Harry for his involvement with LGBT rights. Thomas noted that Prince Harry pointed out the topic used to be one that was taboo but is now an open conversation.
Markle and Harry will marry on May 19.
