Meghan Markle will fight for women's empowerment
Meghan Markle is expected to use her new royal status to help fight for social justice and women's empowerment.
The 'Suits' star has been given an official page on the Royal Family's website, where they detailed her various charity work over the years and the causes that are important to her.
The post on the official website reads: "As well as undertaking royal duties in support of The Queen, both in the UK and overseas, The Duchess devotes her time to supporting a number of charities and organisations. From a young age, The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work.
"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. 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 - who is now known as the Duchess of Sussex, following her marriage to Prince Harry - also had some of the work she has already done with the royal family since her engagement detailed on the page.
The post continues: "Alongside her successful career as an actress, Her Royal Highness also wrote and edited a lifestyle website called The Tig which she used as a platform to discuss social issues such as gender equality in addition to articles on travel, food and fashion.
"Along with Prince Harry, The Duchess has spent several months since the announcement of their engagement visiting local communities and organisations across the UK both publicly and privately."
