Meghan Markle Showed Off Her Bilingual Skills During Recent Charity Visit

Remember last week when we reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry volunteered at a Los Angeles charity? Well, as it turns out, the Duchess of Sussex did more than just prepare meals with her hubby—she spoke fluent Spanish to the other participants. 

ICYMI: The royal couple recently paid a surprise visit to Homeboy Industries, a community social justice organization working to improve the lives of formerly incarcerated and previously gang-involved people in L.A. During the event, they worked in the café and bakery for the #FeedHOPE program, which employs Homeboy participants to provide meals to those in need during the current pandemic. 

Per the group’s founder, Father Greg Boyle, not only did the duo shock the group by just being “Harry and Meghan,” but the duchess also impressed volunteers by showcasing her bilingual skills. 

“She spoke Spanish perfectly with one young woman,” Boyle told People. “She just went right into Spanish, which was a revelation—and it was very good.” We’re not super surprised, considering the duchess interned at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, after finishing her education. 

According to the outlet, Meghan was the one who called to arrange the visit and wanted to keep things casual. 

"She didn’t want to have a long-table discussion or presentation or even a tour," Boyle continued. "They knew we pivoted our organization to help address food insecurity in the county and that was intriguing to her, so she said, 'We want to come and put an apron on,' and that’s what they did. It was quite wonderful.”

Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to hear those Spanish-speaking skills one day.
