Meghan Markle on #MeToo and #TimesUp.  She wants to hit the ground running on the issue as soon as the wedding is over. More than 2,500 people from the community to be invited to their wedding at Windsor Castle.  Good stuff!

Meghan Markle wants to “shine a light on women feeling empowered” as she begins to work with royal charities.

She said she hoped to hit the ground running as she joined Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to discuss their foundation.

Her fiance, Harry, joked that the foursome were now stuck together.

The Royal Foundation, set up in 2009, focuses on causes close to the royals’ hearts.  They include the armed forces, conservation and mental health.

William, Catherine, Harry and Ms Markle held the foundation’s first forum on Wednesday. They discussed its plans for the future.

“We’ve all got that same passion to want to make a difference,” said Ms Markle.

The former actress, who is to marry Prince Harry in May, has previously campaigned for the United Nations on topics such as gender equality and modern slavery.

She told the forum: “For me it’s very important to want to hit the ground running… even if it’s doing it quietly behind the scenes, which is what I’ve focused my energy on thus far.”
