Meghan Markle posted pictures on the Sussex Royal Instagram account Friday, highlighting some of the charity work she did before marrying into the royal family.
The post begins with the caption: “Today, on International Day of Education, we highlight the importance of access to education for all. The Duchess of Sussex has focused on this both prior to becoming a member of the Royal Family and now as patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official).”
She includes pictures from a trip she made to a primary school in Rwanda in 2016 with World Vision – the trip promoted access to clean water in rural areas.
Another picture recalls a trip Markle made in 2017 to India to promote gender equality with World Vision again as a Global Ambassador.

Today, on International Day of Education, we highlight the importance of access to education for all. The Duchess of Sussex has focused on this both prior to becoming a member of the Royal Family and now as patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official). • Working closely with CAMA, both The Duke and Duchess recognise the benefit both personally and to society at large when a young girl has access to education. On their recent tour to Southern Africa, The Duke supported the initiatives of @Camfed on the ground in Malawi 🇲🇼. • Over the years, The Duchess has worked in developing communities, such as in Rwanda 🇷🇼 and India 🇮🇳 , to find the hindrances to girls’ ability to go to school and furthermore to stay in school. These can include lack of access to clean water, stigma surrounding MHM, cultural taboo, and many more reasons…. • As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.

Markle has been doing charity work as a UN Women advocate and with World Vision since before she started dating Prince Harry in 2016. She also travelled to Afghanistan on a USO tour in 2014.
After marrying Prince Harry in 2018, the royals have worked with various charities such as the Campaign for Female Education, working closely with them in Malawi during their Southern Africa tour.
The SussexRoyal Instagram account is part of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s “step back” from the royal family.
Despite rumours surfacing that the royal couple are giving a sit-down interview to Ellen about the affair, a source tells ET Canada the rumours are “categorically untrue”.
After discussing the terms of their departure with the Royal family, Prince Harry has rejoined his family in Canada.
