Meghan Markle made the most of her last day as a working member of the royal family. The Duchess of Sussex attended one final event for one of her royal patronages before she left London for Canada on Monday.
Yup, before attending the queen’s service with Prince Harry and the rest of the royal gang, it turns out Markle attended a meeting at Buckingham Palace with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). The duchess took over the role of Royal Patron of the ACU in January 2019 from Queen Elizabeth, who had been the patron for 33 years before.
At the event, she met with a group of 22 Commonwealth scholars studying and researching important areas surrounding cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving the quality of heath for citizens and supporting decent work and economic growth.
Members of the group hailed from 11 different Commonwealth countries, including Malawi, India, Cameroon, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
