Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken the next big step for their new life.

The couple has hired Catherine St-Laurent, a former staffer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to head their future charitable plans.

According to People, St-Laurent worked for the foundation since 2011 including roles as the director of communications and then the director of brand and special initiatives for Pivotal Ventures which is an investment and incubation company created by Melinda Gates.

One area St-Laurent focused on is programs for women, an area that Meghan has been vocal she wants to pursue.

“Beginning next week I will be acting as Chief of Staff and Executive Director of the new non-profit enterprise for Meghan M and Harry. They are embarking on a new chapter themselves and I am thrilled to be able to play a supporting role in realizing their vision and enabling them to achieve impact on the issues that matter most to them,” she wrote.
