Meghan Markle is making good on her promise to champion women’s rights and higher education.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Sussex attended an Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) meeting at King’s College London yesterday to discuss the importance of higher learning. Kensington Palace shared the news on Instagram with a photo of Markle taking notes.

The palace explained that the pregnant duchess “joined university leaders, academics and international scholarship students as they discussed the role of higher education in addressing issues such as human trafficking, modern slavery, gender equality, peace and reconciliation, and climate change.”

KP went on to write that the duchess previously announced “two ACU Gender Grants for the University of the South Pacific and Fiji National University, to fund new learning initiatives aimed at empowering female university staff and promoting gender equality,” while on her Oceania tour.  

Is there anything she can’t do?
