It’s no surprise that The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, led by the royal couple, would share such heartfelt messages of support. In the past, Meghan (and Harry) have spoken up about the need to unity our voices and our efforts in order to enact positive social change for all. At a panel discussion about women‘s issues at King’s College for International Women’s Day in 2019, Meghan shared, “If there was a wrong, if there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something. And why not me?” See the full tweet below!
