Meghan Markle, making her official royal duty debut, was joined by fiancee Prince Harry, along with Prince William and a pregnant Duchess Kate Middleton at the inaugural Royal Foundation Forum.

Sitting on the panel, the royals discussed their various charitable projects, The Mirror reported.

One of the issues raised was the #MeToo movement. 36-year-old Markle, who starred in “Suits”, said that she was “working behind the scenes quietly.”

“Women don’t need to find a voice, they already have one they need to learn how to use it,” she added. “The #MeToo campaign could make such a difference.”

Asked about balancing the charity work with planning her upcoming wedding, Markle joked that she was able to “multi-task” with Harry also adding he’s “pretty busy planning a wedding.”

With four people running a royal foundation, the group do butt heads over disagreements.

“Working with family does have its challenges,” Harry admitted, “but we’re stuck together for the rest of our lives.”

The prince also said there are advantages to having all four of them working together, including the way their differing personalities can help with planning.

Markle agreed, adding, “If everyone was thinking the same, how are you going to push the envelope?”
