Meghan’s surprise engagement during the Invictus Games

Meghan Markle visited a non-profit organization supporting non-binary girls and children during her trip to the Netherlands in April, she revealed today.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, who is now based in California with her two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, and husband Prince Harry, was in the Netherlands to support the Duke at the 2022 Invictus Games.

In photographs shared online by Project Fearless on Monday, a beaming Meghan wore a stylish £2,570 sand-coloured blazer by Chloe as she was captured talking to children at the Dutch charity in Amsterdam.

She made an appearance as a guest coach to give “inspiring and encouraging” feedback on the young people’s sustainable business pitches during the group’s entrepreneurship course.

For her outing, the mother-of-two wore a work-ready silk blazer with pockets and rolled up sleeves, which she teamed with a black top and matching trousers.

Adding a touch of glitz to her ensemble, Meghan paired her cream blazer with a dazzling ‘Juste un Clou’ Cartier necklace – which costs £13,100.

The Duchess kept her hair down and added a touch of glamorous makeup to her features for the surprise engagement.

Photos showed Meghan hugging a delighted young participant and also clapping with her hand in the air in a team photo with the teenagers. In another image, the Duchess sits cross-legged in a talking circle and stands in front of a whiteboard.

The Fearless Project aims to give girls and non-binary youth aged 9-14 the tools to succeed through after-school classes, including but not limited to climate science, skateboarding, kickboxing and entrepreneurship.

He announced the Duchess’ visit to mark her third birthday. It described how Meghan helped students with their business presentations and “enthusiastic” participated in a group exercise on how to deal with fears.

Meghan was in the Netherlands in April to appear alongside Prince Harry at his 2022 Invictus Games, with the couple appearing together at a number of events while attending the international multi-sport event.

The games, founded by the Duke, were first held in 2014, for wounded, injured and ill service members, whether serving or veterans.

Meghan’s visit to the entrepreneurship course was announced by the nonprofit today. The Duchess said of her visit: “Safe and supportive spaces like Project Fearless empower girls to express themselves, build themselves, build resilience and take on new challenges.”

“The Duchess’ visit was a great way to celebrate the impact Project Fearless has had over the past three years, showcasing the truly accessible girl role models who are making a difference and using their voices,” said the founder of Project Fearless, Merida Miller.

One of the youngsters who met Meghan, 12-year-old Meesha, added: “I can’t believe she shared her fears with me. For the rest of my life, if ever I scared or if someone makes me feel small, I’m going to think ‘Never mind, you get it. Meghan said it!”

Upon hearing about 15-year-old Myrtle’s goal of becoming a teen mentor for Project Fearless, the Duchess encouraged her and shared her experience mentoring young children as teenagers.

Myrtle said, “I learned how important it is to be true to who you are and to have faith in that. Be fearless and teach it to others as well.

Meghan has long been an advocate for women’s rights. In 2015, she became a United Nations Women’s Advocate for Women’s Political Participation and Leadership.

In April 2021, the Duchess hosted a roundtable with members of Girls Inc. and the National Women’s Law Center.

Meanwhile, this year for Women’s History Month, Meghan and Harry have awarded grants through their Archewell Foundation to four organizations trying to advance gender equality.
