Harry Says Meghan 'Answers the Questions,' She Replies, 'Gender Equality!'
Prince Harry deferred to Meghan Markle on the subject of gender equality
On Tuesday, the couple stepped out for their second official royal engagement, visiting the Reprezent 107.3FM radio studio in London to learn about Reprezent’s work to positively impact young people and create social change.
During the visit, the pair put on headphones in the studio and chatted with dozens of young DJs. (Harry even carrying off a complicated fist bump with one!) When the discussion turned to gender equality, Harry deferred to Meghan.
Station manager Adrian Newman told the prince that they had a question for him — to which Harry pointed at Meghan and said, “She answers the questions!”
“Yes, talking of gender equality!” she replied, smiling.
Meghan has long been an outspoken feminist and a supporter of gender equality. She has worked with U.N. Women in the past, as well as advocating for girls around the world through her work with World Vision Canada. When she was just 11 years old, she wrote to Procter & Gamble to encourage them to change a sexist slogan in one of their commercials. (It worked!)
The conversation eventually turned to the couple’s upcoming wedding, which Meghan said she was “so excited” for. Their much-anticipated nuptials are set to take place on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
“They’re amazing. I’m totally happy for them,” Tracey, a spectator, told PEOPLE. “They’re my favourite royal couple. She’s an asset to the royal family, and Prince Harry’s lucky to have her.”
