“From a young age, The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work,” the page reads.
“Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid. Her Royal Highness also volunteered at a soup kitchen in Skid Row, Los Angeles from the age of 13-17. She continued to volunteer at the soup kitchen when she would return home to Los Angeles until the age of 22.”
“These early experiences helped to shape her lifelong commitment to causes such as social justice and women’s empowerment.”
The biography also noted Ms Markle’s time in Toronto whilst filming the popular TV series Suits.
“While filming in Toronto, The Duchess actively volunteered at a Canadian soup kitchen from 2011-2013. She also established the program at her place of work to ensure that leftover meals from the set were donated to local homeless shelters.”
Meghan’s roles with UN Women, One Young World and World Vision are also mentioned on the Royal web page, along with a quote from Ms Markle that reads: “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.”
Kensington Palace has also made a number of changes to their social media images to include Ms Markle.
