After slaying her first solo engagement as a duchess, Meghan Markle passed the monarchy’s test, which means they’re giving her a bunch more opportunities to show off her royal events rapport.
During her and Prince Harry’s first royal tour together to Oceania (beginning October 16), including stops in Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Tonga, Markle will attend two pro-feminism events alone (no Prince Harry this time). On October 23 in Fiji, the Duchess of Sussex will have tea at the British high commissioner’s residence and attend a showcase of Fiji’s women’s organizations. She’ll also meet some female vendors in Fiji’s Suva Market who work with the United Nations’ project Markets for Change, which focuses on empowering female entrepreneurs (a program Markle has worked closely with in the past).
It’s also the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand, so they’ll both attend a reception hosted by the governor-general honoring the special day.
So, who run the world? The Duchess of Sussex, that’s who.
