In what might be taken as a reference to her relationship with Harry, who has spoken in the past about having Meghan working by his side, the duchess said during the debate: "This is really about us working together, that's what gender equality means to me".
Meghan was joined by influential women including Annie Lennox, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Adwoa Aboah, Chrisann Jarrett, and Angeline Muirmirwa to talk about women's issues.
As many royal watchers already know, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has long championed women's rights (her feminist breakthrough was at the age of 11), so it seems only appropriate that Queen Elizabeth II has appointed her as Vice President of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, and particularly so on International Women's Day.
"The Royal Family is forced to be monitoring their social media feeds 24/7 because of all of the racist hate that Meghan has been receiving".

The duchess explained, according to the BBC: "One of the things they said during pregnancy was 'I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism'. This is something that is going to be part of the conversation forever". Back in 2014, when she was a mere famous actress, she gave a city guide to My Domaine where she mentioned being a fan of the drinks at Cocktail Bar, recommended visiting Americans try poutine (obviously), and said she was a fan of the eclectic Kensington Market neighbourhood.
"If there was a wrong, if there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to do something". For someone whose style makes such a global impact and can literally rescue a brand from the brink of bankruptcy, we're surprised she didn't choose to support more female designers today, but we applaud her playful look nonetheless.
Nuclear Nightmare: India and Pakistan are on the Brink
Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu has called for a de-escalation of tensions and a resolution on the Kashmir conflict. The Pakistani officer goes on to ask him about his squadron to which Abhinandan replies, "I am not supposed to tell you that".
